Well it is. Plenty of Geelong residents running around in the BFL.I would not catagorise the Bellarine FL as a "Geelong" League.
It has Geelong Amateurs and Newcomb playing in it. GA has strong ties to Geelong College.
If they bring in the 3 league promotion/relegation model they have proposed Torquay will be in the top tier eventually.
For a lot of the clubs it's a big part of their budget no doubt.Are their pokies the main revenue source- if not, what are the other revenue sources?
Why does the GDFL have these revenue sources, & the GFL & BFL, generally, do not?
The GDFL has it because they were run super well and they own a place called Buckley's.
They actually donated half a million dollars between all local clubs in the Geelong leagues in 2020.
Buckley's donation eases pressure on local clubs - Bellarine Times (timesnewsgroup.com.au)
Yes. You're confusing our local St Albans with the Melbourne St Albans.IIRC, there were recently a few other Melb. WS clubs playing in Geelong Leagues eg St Albans.
Are you sure that Werribee Centrals are the sole Melb. WS club still playing in a Geelong League?
Geelong has a suburb called St Albans. It's where St Alban's Park was and it's there they hid Phar Lap before a Melbourne Cup.
As mentioned Geelong College juniors are often tied to Geelong Amateurs in the BFL.Geelong Grammar & Geelong College Old Boys play in the VAFA.
Are you aware of any Geelong area teams ever playing in the WRFL (I assume they would have little regard for their personal safety)?
No Geelong clubs ever played in the WRFL.
