An Upper Murray farmer who welcomed extra help on Saturday has "nothing but praise" for the Albury Tigers footballers who pitched in.
Russell McKelvey said despite "what they may or may not have done" that night, which resulted in the Colac Colac Caravan Park owners asking them to leave the next morning, "their help didn't go unnoticed".
"They did a great job, they got in and cleaned it all up for me," he said.
"I have a lot of fencing and stuff to do but it is a lot easier to do that with a clean area.
"What they did after they left here doesn't bother me, they came here to help and that is what they did for me.
"I'm not their dad, they are responsible for their own actions.
"But it is a shame it has taken away from the good work they did do up here."

Colac Colac Caravan Park owner Paul Dally said the whole club "has got a bit of work to do'".
Mr Dally said the behaviour of the club on Saturday night showed disrespect for the park and all of its guests.
"It's pretty ordinary, we're pretty disappointed with how they conducted themselves," he said.
"We're trying to build our business back up to where it was, and it's a pretty big kick in the guts.
"To come out to our caravan park and to conduct yourself like that, and put us under the pump like that, was pretty disappointing. We don't want them out here."
Mr McKelvey's 60 acre property was "completely burnt" in the Upper Murray fires earlier this year.
And he has been cleaning up ever since. "Unfortunately we got all that rain a few weeks ago and it just washed everything down the hills," Mr McKelvey said.
"We just got a huge deluge of water and that made things 10 times worse.
"But we keep going and getting on with it."
Mr McKelvey said unfortunately emergency assistance from the government has been "hard to navigate".
"I have a few applications in but there is a tonne of paperwork attached and we don't know if they will be accepted or not - just got to hope for the best."
