It was a loud and proud rendition of Newcastle City's song heard at Waratah Oval on Sunday.
A decade since the club's last premiership in any format in the top grade, the Sabres broke through for their maiden T20 title with a 14-run win over hosts Waratah-Mayfield.
Marquee player Ben Patterson was named player of the final, having top scored on 73 in a total of 8-144 and proved difficult to get away finishing with figures of 1-21 as the Waratahs were restricted to 8-130 in reply.
Sabres captain Mitch Nesbitt, who only picked up the role just before Christmas, said it was a satisfying feeling to hold aloft the T20 Summer Bash trophy.
Newcastle City's most recent success was a Tom Locker Cup 50-over decider in 2010-11 and two-day wise dates back to 1975-76.
They reached the T20 showdown in 2010-11, but 10 seasons on the Sabres ensured they were on the other side of the result.
"It's hard to imagine, but it's good to finally win something. It's been a long time coming," Nesbitt said.
The wicketkeeper-batsman said it was a new experience for the young squad.
"It was pretty much our first final in first grade for all of us. It's been a great day," he said.
The Sabres qualified for the top eight after dropping just one round game in the stand-alone competition and knocked out defending champions the Pumas (Hamilton-Wickham) in the quarters last weekend.
Sunday morning's semi-final saw Dylan Hunter smash 80 not out off 25 balls as the Sabres easily accounted for last year's finalists the Whips (Belmont), chasing down 9-117 in 7.5 overs.
The former City all-rounder, now with Gordon, missed out with the bat in the decider but took 3-21 and secured a catch in the outfield.
Patterson, who also plays first grade in Sydney, stepped up with an impressive 53-ball knock that featured 22 himself off the fifth over.
"Crazy, to bat like that and bowl like that. Plus the performance by Dyl to get us there," Nesbitt said.
Earlier in the second semi the Waratahs overcame the Rosellas (Wests), who were previously unbeaten in 2020-21, by 12 runs to make the final after the visitors were 0-92 in pursuite of 8-148.
Waratahs skipper Jonty Durrheim said he was "proud" of his team's efforts.
Meanwhile, all first-grade matches in round 11 ended in draws after play was again affected by wet weather on day two.
Stockton resumed at 2-147 and made 5-206 from a revised 66 overs before rain stopped the game with Waratah-Mayfield 1-10 in reply at Lynn Oval on Saturday.
Sea Dragons paceman Daniel Rea (5-10) claimed both wickets as Cardiff-Boolaroo lost 2-14 to be 6-80 when the fixture at University Oval was called off.
There was no further action between Wests (3-65) and Hamwicks at Harker Oval, Charlestown (4-72) and Belmont at Kahibah Oval, Toronto (2-140) and City at Ron Hill Oval, Wallsend and Merewether (5-55) at Wallsend Oval.
