Round Nine – Weekly Wrap

20th June, 2018

Due to such heavy rain and poor conditions, many of the games this weekend were called off due to the grounds being to unsafe to play on. For those games that were able to go ahead, it was back to old school wet weather football and plenty of mud. Thanks to all the volunteers, coaches, umpires, parents & players who braved these tough conditions.
