Kevin Adair opened the Wolves’ batting, with captain Caillin Blackwood joining him mid-innings. Both remained unbeaten on 72 and 38 respectively, with Blackwood taking his team to a winning total of 4-132 with a six.

Joondalup Kinross had the honours of the “triple crown”, having won the one-day grand final, the minor premiership and then a first A-grade premiership in the club’s 21-season history (11 in A-Grade).

“This was not only an historic moment for the players and members of our club but a wonderful reward for all the people who have helped shape our great club over the past two decades,” club president Terry ‘Richo’ Richardson said.

The club’s B-grade side made the grand final, along with under-13 Green, under-14 Green and under-16 teams.

The under-16 side was triumphant.

Quinns Rocks president Damien Slattery congratulated the Wolves.

“Well done Richo and the boys on their first A-grade premiership,” he said.
