    As we are all talking 2012 now I thought we should start a new thread.

    Kick us off with coaching appointments, player movement/signings and anything on new clubs and C grade (is it even going to happen?)

    So I'm hearing that APW have also signed ex-Carlton player Simon Wiggins.

    Harris, Contessa, Harding, Wiggins and add to that Mick Martin coming back. Not bad, not bad at all.

    Good to hear KP are still 'on track.' A very proud club which had a great family atmosphere and plenty of good people around when I played juniors there-along time ago!

    Football powers and structures always change. In the mid/late 90s KP U18 finished on top of U18 ladder and APW and Oak Park were forfeiting games.

    KP seniors were playing A grade finals against AH, K & OP and Mooney Valley were in A grade too.

    Good luck to KP.

    I wonder how many clubs will be up pooh creek in 2013 as they attempt to avoid the drop to Div 3.

    Always a few noses put out of joint when blokes that used to be senior players find themselves running around in the early game... Happens at all clubs

    Will probably be clubs on the fringe of div 2 that will be tempted to spend more than they normally would...

    I really don't think div three clubs will struggle to recruit due to stigma... Could be a good opportunity for a guy coming to the end of his career that hasn't played in a flag to snare one. or a guy that just wants to play at a lower level

    Why would Daniel Harris go to APW when he could quite easily walk into any local footy side in the state?

    Probably had the biggest impact of all the Ex AFL players who have played Div 2.
    Was a very good player for them.

    Would be surprised if it happened seeing as they have no juniors... Would definitely help them retain players though

    They need juniors. If that isn't happening then a move wont happen.

    Coburg Districts are a middle of the road Div 2 side in the WRFL and would be a definite Div 3 side for the EDFL. Also do we really need another EDFL side in that region with Hadfield, PV, Nth Saints, Glenroy ??

    coburg districts should be in the edfl imo. but they wont be able to get juniors. so they wont get put in, a new craigieburn team would make sense. seems how big the place is.

    Could anybody provide a list of A & B grade confirmed coaches for 2012? Are there any clubs without a coach at this point?
