On the back of Wednesday’s state government announcement to extend the lockdown in metropolitan Melbourne the WGFNC, in consultation with member clubs, will abandon all grades of football and netball for the 2021 season.
Despite the intention of the WGFNC to complete a 2021 finals series, the current restrictions, and no clear timeline on easement of restrictions has forced the decision.
The WGFNC are committed to working closely with their member clubs, AFL Victoria, AFL Gippsland, and Netball Victoria to manage the associated issues related to the cancellation of all competition and working towards a return to play next season.
The teams who finished on top of the WGFNC ladder will be recognised as the 2021 minor premiers and the 2021 Best & Fairest Vote Counts will take place online with presentations to be arranged in due course.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank all clubs, players, parents, volunteers, officials, umpires and league partners for your patience, support, and cooperation throughout the 2021 season.
