The “Savonetta Boys’” last sniff of the title came back in 2009, when the team lost 3-2 in the final to Joe Public. Caledonia, the winner of the competition back in 2008, went up against reigning Super League knockout and league champions Joe Public, a match which they won 2-0 with goals from national players Devorn Jorsling and Ataullah Guerra.
