'Runs in the family' was as much a saying as a game plan at Westbury during season 1979-80.
A campaign which climaxed in the A-grade and A-reserve premiership double was indebted in no small way to several sets of playing brothers.
Brian Walker, who played alongside brother and opening quick John in the A-grade grand final win over South Launceston, recalls his side's 246-run victory in vivid colour.

"We had a very talented side made up of three lots of brothers," the Launceston business owner said.
"Two Sheltons - Mark Shelton who's in parliament and Ricky Shelton - John and myself and two Pages so it was a bit of a family effort."
Batting first at the NTCA ground, the Shamrocks piled on 8-504 before bowling the Knights out for 258.
The win broke a several-decade premiership drought and was orchestrated by tons from first-year captain-coach Rob Jeffery, of New South Wales, and Stephen Page.
"Rob Jeffery made a superb 169 - he was the backbone of the innings at number five," Walker said.
"Robert instilled some discipline into the club and made us train hard and we reaped the rewards for our efforts.
"Number four was Emmanuel Benjamin our Indian import, he was a great cricketer and he was unluckily run out for 98 - he was non-striking and went up the wicket and the bowler tapped it onto the wicket.
"We had another Indian import Barry Sharma and he took three wickets, Robbie Peters took three wickets and Emmanuel with his left-arm orthodox took three wickets."
The A-reserve final saw teenage brothers Stephen and Michael Claxton combine with a third Page brother to do the double on South Launceston.
Chasing 280 on the NTCA's second ground - now the site of the Elphin Sports Centre car park - a Shamrocks side skippered by keeper Bill Preece passed the target thanks to an anchoring knock of 132 from Kerry Leonard.
Stephen, the senior of the Claxton brothers, made 62.

"We were in a bit of trouble early and Kerry Leonard batted pretty much all the way through and was last out if I recall," he said.
"I've been lucky enough to play in a few [premierships] after that but I suppose the first one was something different to experience.
"To win two of them it was just a great achievement - they had a lot of depth all through the grades which was proven in the two wins.
"The competition then was very strong, even in the second grade you had to face good bowlers and there were good batters in all the teams."
Westbury will hold its 1979-80 premiership reunion in conjunction with its 70th anniversary celebrations and inaugural hall of fame inductions on January 18.
The function will be held at the Westbury Cricket Club with legendary Australian Test quick Jeff Thomson the guest speaker.
