Former Brock-Burrum footballers Brad Scott and Heath Linehan took to the shearing sheds to come up with the club's latest mascots.

Four sheep, with mohawks, will be sporting red, black and white in a paddock on Howlong-Burrumbuttock Road.

The club has A, B and C Reserve grade netball sides and the senior football side in the final. Mr Scott's partner and A-grade netball coach, Lauren Kerrins, was happy with the extra support.

“The boys were shearing this week and had a bit of fun – I think they just like to play funny buggers,” she said.

“The extra support will come in handy – it could be a good luck charm.

“They are in a paddock in the middle of Burrumbuttock, so people driving to the grand final can have a look.

“Hopefully people get a bit of a laugh out of it, it's a bit of finals spirit.”
