2021 Season Update

 

Gratefully Footy is back this week, with our Senior Womens team taking on East Ringwood at East Ringwood 1pm this Saturday.
The Vets host South Croydon on Sunday at Quambee 2:30pm.
The Premier division Senior Mens, Reserves and U19s competitions wont resume until the week after on Saturday the 7th August.

There are restrictions regarding numbers of people at games and in our club rooms which are quite limiting, this is the cost of resuming community sport and although its unfortunate that we have restrictions in place, at least we have games to look forward to.
As it stand today the EFNL have announced a modified fixture for the remaining season, they also announced that there wont be any relegation at the end of the season due to the anomalies in the draw. There will be a Div 1 side promoted resulting in a twelve team competition for season 2022.

So our run home looks like this
