The Eastern Football League has announced that it will only be producing an online version of The Eastern Footballer in season 2019.
This comes twelve months after AFL Barwon pulled the pin on their weekly editions for the Geelong and Bellarine leagues.

Do you think the humble, yet informative, Football Record's days are numbered at grassroots level?

For the country leagues, it seems to be more of a necessity at matches as opposed to their city cousins who have more access to information online for their leagues.

Are any other leagues considering ditching theirs?

I think I read somewhere the Southern league is doing it online this year.
They confirmed with me this morning that will 'no longer be producing football records'.
Not 100% sure whether that even means only an online version.
