It was all about grand final footy in the September of 2007, both locally and in the big leagues.
The people of Kimba were looking forward to the 2007 AFL Grand Final where two of the town's top footballers Corey Enright and Darryl Wakelin would do battle in a match half the state would soon hope to forget.
Closer to home, the Cowell Football Club took the top honours with a win in the A grade, while Cleve won the trophy in the A grade netball.
Trophy winners for the season were named in the junior divisions, with now well-established AFL player Sam Gray among the juniors honoured.
The Eyre Peninsula Tribune also celebrated a long list of newborns welcomed by local families in the winter.
