SOUTH Fremantle is back at Fremantle Community Bank Oval this Saturday to host the fourth placed Swan Districts with the John Todd Cup on the line.

With the Bulldogs celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the 1997 premiership next month, it's only fitting that this Saturday's clash with Swans will be for the John Todd Cup named in honour of the man who coached the Bulldogs to that triumph.

Of course he was also the youngest ever Sandover Medallist during his playing career at South Fremantle while also coaching Swan Districts to a hat-trick of premierships in 1982, 83 and 84.

So not only does Saturday's game pay tribute to a legend of West Australian football, but it's a crucial clash for both teams currently occupying two of the top four spots in the WAFL nearing the business end of the 2017 season.
