Ballarat football entered a new era in 1975 with John Northey beginning a three year run of premierships. His introduction of the fast flow-on style gained with his successful years at Richmond set the standard for other clubs to strive for.

Redan were minor premiers with 14 wins. Brian ‘Doc’ Hepper kicked a remarkable goal to win Redan’s First Senior premiership in twenty three years, the start of a golden era. A special wine was bottled called BIN 23.

The reserves won the premiership for the second consecutive year coached by Peter Merriman. David Atkinson won the goal kicking award with 67 goals. Coloured football shorts were introduced in 1975. After game celebration was at the Showgrounds Pavilion.
