Netball rescheduled

The Gippsland League board has approved a request from the Maffra and Leongatha football netball clubs to reschedule their washed out netball games from round 12.

The original matches were cancelled due to severe flooding at Maffra Recreation Reserve on 9 July and will now be played at Agnes Brereton Reserve netball courts in Traralgon on Sunday, 14 August.

The request to reschedule the games was discussed at a recent Gippsland League board meeting and board chair Greg Maidment said all such cases were considered on their individual merits.

Despite the best efforts of the board and clubs, the corresponding football matches were unable to be rescheduled and will continue to be classified as draws, with each team issued two premiership points and no change to their percentage.
