Jed Winter's phone offered up a memory on Friday. It was a photo from an under 17s premiership with North Wagga. He was celebrating with his late aunt, Lexie Keating.
Saturday's grand final will be a family affair for the Winters. Jed's older brother Cayden is a co-captain at the Saints. Their dad 'Bunge' won a flag in 1991. And uncle Peter, Lexie's husband, was there in the club's darkest hour, helping steer it out of a season in recess in 2007.
But Aunty Lek will be at the forefront of the Winter brothers' minds.
"Our aunty passed away before the start of last year. Me and Jed were saying to each other in last year's grand final that we wanted to do it for Aunty Lek," Cayden says.
"We didn't get the choccies but she'll be very much in our mind again this year. Uncle Peter was president of North Wagga footy club for years and we probably wouldn't still have a club if it wasn't for those two."
The boys want to bring success to North Wagga for many who have been part of its history. Like their dad.
'Bunge' played in the win win against Ariah Park-Mirrool 28 years ago. A broken arm cut his career short in 1992 but it was a golden era at McPherson Oval, withfive straight grand finals (1990-1994) and three premierships.
He'll proudly watch on as his sons go back to the big dance, this time against East Wagga-Kooringal.
"I've got mates coming from all different directions to watch them. I know I've got two brothers that played a lot of footy and I never played in a granny with them. Me and their mum, Kerry, are just very proud of them," he says.
He's rapt in the consistency Cayden, 24, has shown, earning him the coaches' player of the year award. And he's loved the improvement in Jed, 21, as he's matured. They play the way he taught them.
"You've got to get in there. When it's your turn to go, you've gotta go, as they say. And you'll get found out if you don't," he says.
"But I've always said to them, you've gotta enjoy what you're doing. If it becomes a task and you're not enjoying it, you won't be at your best. It just makes me proud that they're enjoying themselves and they're doing it with a great bunch of mates."
But the motivation for Jed and Cayden is also to do it for themselves.
They've had two years playing together since Cayden came back from Tumbarumba, but Jed's set to move away next season.
"We hadn't really played together at all because was a few years younger," Cayden says.
"We always look out for each other out there. It's good fun."
Cayden reckons Jed goes under the radar but loves his polished skills as well as the willingness to rip in.
Knowing this could be their last game together adds to the occasion.
"It definitely makes you want to win it even more," Jed says. "It's been unreal. I suppose from being little kids, you know each other pretty well and it's funny how often you give the ball to each other."
He reckons there's a lot to like about Cayden's approach.
"When he touches the ball, it seems like something's going to happen. He wins the hard ball easily but he can get out on the outside too, he's quick enough to do it. It's good to watch."
All three say grand final week has been calm and composed. Having lost to Marrar last year, they know what it's about.
"I haven't been as nervous this week," Cayden says.
"I played the game a lot in my head last year. This year, everyone seems a bit more composed. Even at training, everyone's excited to be there but not running around nervous."
A four-quarter effort and a 21-man performance is what the Winters want.
And, just quietly, Bunge thinks this group's got it in them.
"I'm proud of where the club's got to. They haven't won a lot as yet, but I'm reasonably confident they can get up on Saturday."
