GDFL Team of the Decade

It was the decade that will be forever remembered for the dominance of Bell Post Hill.

After being beaten in the 2008 and 2009 deciders, the Panthers claimed seven of the ten premierships on offer between 2010-2019.

Only North Geelong in 2013 denied the men from Myers Reserve what would have been a local record of eight consecutive premierships.

It will also be remembered for Inverleigh’s inability to turn seven finals appearance into their first flag since coming out of recess in 2002.

Every club bar Anakie and Corio appeared in finals.

Minimum criteria for selection was set at 50 games. Games and goals are for the period 2010-19
