South Melbourne FC have qualified for their first 2022 National Premier’s League Victoria Grand Final since 2016.

South Melbourne are into their first Grand Final in six years after defeating Green Gully SC in a semi-final match at Melbourne’s Lakeside Stadium on Sunday.

The 1-0 score came after South Melbourne’s Alun Webb put the Club ahead with an outside of the foot long ranger in the 56th minute of the match.
