Tiny? 160x135 sounds large enough to me. Would be bigger than Montmorency and Macleod?

Although it states the upgrades will benefit students and the new grounds will also accommodate Watsonia Heights Football Club, Macleod Junior Football Club, Macleod Cricket Club, St Marys Greensborough Junior Football Club and St Marys Football Club due to construction works at their grounds at the time so maybe this ground can be used as a back up for other clubs who require ground works in the future.

It's alot smaller then that. They bring the boundaries right in when the kids are playing on it. There is a huge gap between the boundary and the fence where parents and other people stand.
So they would have to push that right back to those dimmensions for senior footy to be able to play on it

It's been 5 seasons since they were a Div 2 club.
yeah exactly, 2 of them cancelled. So 3 full seasons in D1 and now close to play finals… fantastic effort.

Lower and Whittlsea the other sides who have come up since them and one is back in D2 other just hanging on.

Yep fair, done very well since coming up.

Can anyone stop Bundoora and Heidelberg?
Nup. Can’t see anyone challenging those two. Especially Heidelberg. Bundoora have lost a few but have picked up a few to replace them. Monty will be around the mark but not a real threat. Without Rob as coach West will get a few back from injury and VFL but will hover between 3-6. Greensborough will drop off. North will jump up and cause some headaches, but don’t have the depth of the top two. The rest are making up the numbers.

I think Heidelberg will go in as the red hot favourites again. Bundoora shouldn't be far behind them. But it will be interesting to see who stays and leaves. There depth is going to be the issue for them next year.

Bit early for me. West doesn’t even have a coach, plenty of clubs haven’t even announced a recruit!

Bottom 3 I agree with though.

Definitely very early. What would you change from what you have heard so far?

It’s time for a 23 thread isn’t it?
At this very early stage I can’t see anyone getting remotely close to Heidelberg next year. Still very early though.

Might as well do the same for Div2 and Div3 while you're in the thread creating mood. Berg definitely the yard stick, daylight second. I've heard Hursty might continue to lose a couple players as well which is concerning for their fight to stay up in Div1

Threads usually get rolled over very soon. Rolling over enables us to bring all the current thread watchers over. Happy to do them in the next day or two.

They’ve lost East to Bundoora and Clarke to Roxy anyone else?

Banyule, Hursty and Whittlesea will battle out relegation
