KDFL ex­pands to 15 teams for the 2019 sea­son

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -

Kyabram Dis­trict Foot­ball Net­ball League has ex­panded to 15 teams, with Shep­par­ton East Foot­ball Net­ball Club added to the 2019 fix­ture just last week.

‘‘We want to en­sure Shepp East can re­main a vi­able club and con­tinue to pos­i­tively con­trib­ute to the com­mu­nity,’’ AFL Goul­burn Mur­ray Re­gion gen­eral man­ager Jamie Macri said.

‘‘It was very im­por­tant to find Shepp East a prac­ti­cal and favourable out­come and thanked the KDFNL for sup­port­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion.

‘‘It is im­por­tant the KDFNL clubs con­tinue to be well sup­ported and the league ad­min­is­tra­tion is given the nec­es­sary re­sources to sup­port the KDFNL with the 15 club fix­ture for 2019.’’

Newly elected KDFNL pres­i­dent Fraser Ker­rins sup­ported Macri’s com­ments.

‘‘A lot of work has gone into en­sur­ing we reached a pos­i­tive res­o­lu­tion as quickly as pos­si­ble so all clubs can move for­ward and make plans for the 2019 sea­son,’’ he said.

The com­pe­ti­tion’s fi­nals struc­ture will re­main a fi­nal six played over four weeks, with the grand fi­nal at Mooroopna.
