Colbo to host Good Friday footy
COLBINABBIN will host the Heathcote league’s Good Friday match next year — and league secretary Trevor Arnel hopes it may become an annual event.
The Grasshoppers will host Mount Pleasant at Morgan Oval in the standalone round two clash, and according to Arnel the clubs have indicated a preference for a continuing Good Friday presence on the calendar, if the day falls in a suitable window early in the season.
The other notable contest of the Heathcote league draw, released Friday, will be on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, with LockingtonBamawm United welcoming Leitchville/Gunbower for the Cats’ 100th anniversary.
The AFL Victoria interleague series will see Heathcote host Central Murray for the second time in three years, although Arnel maintained that the venue was still to be decided — either within the HDFL or as was the case in 2014, a twilight double-header in Bendigo alongside the BFL and/or North-Central league.
