Long-awaited return of The Shirtfront radio show

Sports fans across the Wimmera can expect to see a return of a weekly radio show covering all the latest in community-level sport, starting this weekend.

Horsham’s Brian ‘Cobber’ Cassidy and Grant Kuchel will host ‘The Shirtfront’ on ACE Radio Broadcasters’ radio station 1089 3WM on Saturday morning.

The presenters will be discussing Wimmera-Mallee football, netball and cricket and greyhound and horse racing.

Mr Kuchel said he was excited to return to the mic after a year-long break from radio due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevented many community-level sports going ahead in 2020.

“It will be good to get back into it. People will get to listen to local sport on a local radio station again,” he said.

“I know Cobber is keen as mustard too – he’s jumping out of his skin with excitement.”

The pair will also focus on covering Wimmera and Horsham District football and netball competitions, which are set to kick off in early April.

Mr Kuchel said all eyes would be on 2019 football premiership winner Minyip-Murtoa in Wimmera league while Harrow-Balmoral would be the team to beat in the Horsham District league in 2021.

“These teams are head and shoulders above the other teams – after that, the teams will be very competitive,” he said.

“But I think even after a long break, players will crack straight back into it because they’re keen to go and would have trained and played a couple of practice games.”

Fans can tune into The Shirtfront from 8am each Saturday.
