A Message from the President

We have finally reached the last Round of the 2023 Season.

Today I would like to Congratulate all Football and Netball sides that have made it to the 2023 Finals. All 10 clubs will be represented in some capacity be it football or netball.
I would also like to announce the Finals venues for 2023:

Saturday 19th Aug – Qualifying Final at Mortlake

Sunday 20th Aug – Elimination Final at Old Collegians

Saturday 26th Aug – Second Final at Russells Creek

Sunday 27th Aug – First Final at Allansford

Saturday 2nd September – Preliminary Final – Reid Warrnambool

Saturday 9th September – Grand Final Reid Warrnambool

A couple of reminders for all clubs:

  1. Concussion WDFNL By Laws
    Any player in Football who is suspected of concussion or the sports trainer believes
    they have concussion of any age MUST obtain MEDICAL CLEARANCE BY A
    DOCTOR before been allow to return to training or game day play. The new By Laws
    require the initial form to be submitted to WDFNL secretary in a timely manner.
    Then before the required 12 days the concussion form needs to be completed
    correctly with the doctor signature, it also must be returned to the WDFNL secretary
    before the player can train or play.
  2. Clubs playing in the final series can only train on their own grounds not the grounds
    that the WDFNL play their final series on. A penalty of $500 is payable by any club
    found to be in breach of this bylaw.

Congratulations to everyone on a successful season and I wish you all the best and good luck.
Kylie Murphy
WDFNL President
