Juniors

NWFL JUNIORS 2018

The competition operates in four grades - Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and Youth Girls.

The junior program is an integral part of the competition and, whilst some clubs have been unable to field teams in certain age groups in 2018, we are aware these clubs are working actively to resolve the issue for 2019.

The NWFL Junior Management Committee, chaired by independent delegate Wayne Elphinstone, is also looking at ways to assist all clubs recruit and retain players for the long term and will be working with clubs to achieve this over the coming months.

With the introduction of a top five for the finals’ series, more players had the chance to be involved in final’s football.

The grand finals were played in ideal conditions at Penguin’s Dial Park and the ground was in excellent condition for the four grades participating on the day.

A special mention should be made to the umpires who show up each week to help out. Without you we don’t have a game, so thank you.

To all of the club delegates who have overseen their club’s junior programme, thank you for your input over the season and we look forward to an even better 2019 season.

By NWFL Independent Delegate, Shane Lee
