Rochy’s sea­son starts with Echuca

Campaspe News - - SPORT -

ROCHESTER will be­gin its 2019 sea­son at home against cross town ri­vals Echuca.

The club will also be a part of a cen­ter­piece game in round 14, play­ing Kyabram in a Sun­day match.

The new GVL fix­ture was re­leased yes­ter­day, with GOTAFE GVL chair David Roff pleased with the fix­ture and the way clubs have been able to ne­go­ti­ate the sched­ul­ing.

“Many of our clubs like to cre­ate stand-alone games in the fix­ture, whether that be night games or Sun­day games. These games typ­i­cally lead to larger gates and greater in­come op­por­tu­ni­ties which we will see again in 2019,’’ Roff men­tioned.

‘‘The ma­jor fo­cus for clubs was the re­quest for more ‘ri­valry rounds’ dur­ing the year which will be ben­e­fi­cial for gates and ex­cit­ing for foot­ball and net­ball games across our league.’’

Check next week’s Cam­paspe News for the full fix­ture.

Rochester duo Tim Letcher and Jack­son McEwan gang­tackle Kyabram's Jor­dan Wil­liams.
