South Launceston's success in their short female football tenure comes from their ability to build players from the ground up, according to coach Adrian Dean.
Only the second season in the Bulldogs' existence, their 2019 grand final year follows a third-placed TWL North finish in 2018 as their list continues to grow.
"I think, from a football club point of view, we are really strong in terms of working from our Auskick players to our under-9s to our youth under-17 girls and then fostering that pathway to both our senior men's and women's teams," Dean said.
"We have some people in our team that have graduated from our under-17 youth girls team, so our young people now can see a pathway for football."

As well as their strong team performances throughout 2019, South controlled the top two placings in the NTFAW best and fairest with 2017 Launceston TSL premiership captain Kate Child taking out the award ahead of Hannah Viney.
Child also featured in the inaugural NTFAW coaches' team of the year alongside coach Dean, defenders Alissia Pearson and Emily Perkins and centre half-forward Kiara Foley, who also kicked the most goals in the competition during the regular season.
Despite featuring highly-skilled personnel at either end of the ground, Dean believes his side's midfield is the key to holding the premiership cup aloft Saturday night.
"We think that whichever team has the midfield that gets on top will go a long way to winning the game.
