SOUTH Launceston intends to reward its players, members and supporters at a special grand final dinner at Youngtown on Saturday night.
Club manager Braden McGee said the Bulldogs were hopeful of filling the room regardless of the outcome of the grand final played earlier in the day.
``Win or lose we want people there and it will be a function where players, members and supporters can mix,'' he said.
``There are a lot of changes going on at South Launceston and this is one way the club can bring everyone together.''
McGee said the club was keen to keep the function separate from the best and fairest count, which is planned for Saturday, October 5, when the winner of the Scott Harris Medal will be known.
South Launceston will play off for its first State League premiership against Burnie at Aurora Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
It will be the first grand final appearance by the Bulldogs since they won consecutive premierships in the NTFL in 1998 and '99.
Coach Mitch Thorp has stuck to his normal training routine for the players with a session at Youngtown last night, tonight will be at St Pats before the final training run at Youngtown on Thursday.
The Bulldogs have a full list of players to choose from.
With an interim committee formed to look after South Launceston's future, many of its former premiership players are back at the club and will be keen supporters on Saturday.
Former coach Jade Elmer, Drew Alexander, Geoff Page, Chad Baker, Adrian Dean, Nigel Page, Al Waterhouse and Scott Harris will be urging on the Bulldogs in their quest for the flag.
