    Gulnare-Redhill also just spent the best part of $50,000 ++ upgrading the clubrooms at Redhill Oval including a new hall. I suggested a heritage display around the walls - eg take the photos out of the change rooms and put them in the hall, find some old guernseys and hang them up as well.

    Old Westbourne split to become the Suns and the new Westbourne Grammarians.

    Yep and they changed from being the red legs to being the demons as well. Some of their junior teams played out at Ashton until maybe 10 years ago.

    Hoping that the lack of posting in this thread means that no one has folded or merged this year. *fingers crossed*

    Deakin University Sharks (Warrnabool & District FL) folded this year because of the lack of student numbers at Deakin's campus at Warrnabool, which means that you won't be seeing the "SHARK SHUFFLE" performed this season.

    Wakool's managed to come back in 2017, but they've had to revise the points system for them, because they're so reliant on players coming from outside of Wakool.

    Ardmona (Kyabram DFL) will not field a senior team for the rest of this season, after getting beaten by over 40+ goals in their first two games by Undera and Rushworth (two clubs who aren't particularly strong this season), they will drop down to the reserves of the KDFL (They haven't fielded a reserves side at all this season) for the rest of the season, they still have an Under 18's & healthy numbers at Netball.

    Finley (Murray FL) have had a mass exodus of players and won't be fielding a reserves team this season either (they weren't allowed to have their seniors drop down to the reserves this season), they will be fielding a very weak senior side (with two's players and kids) and will have an Under 17's & 14's and a full allotment of netball teams.

    Yes, Shane Crawford was recruited from Finley as well as Tom Hawkins and his dad Jack, basically they spent too much money to get a flag, failed twice (they were beaten in the grand final in 2013 & 14), their players left en masse (a few left for money, but they had a few players who are going overseas to travel, and a few locals that decided not to come down from Melbourne and Geelong, and instead are playing in surburban leagues) and that's where they are, they'll come back because thier juniors are strong, but it'll be a while.

    Ardmona on the other hand, have been terrible for a few years now, and they'll be competitive in the reserves now that they've dropped back, but it'll be interesting to see what'll happen if they don't get a senior side next year.

    You'd think that Crawf could round up his media mates to support the club that gave him his start...

    Unfortunately it's unviable to keep a football club sustainable or as a single identity especially when low on players or small facilities, or when other clubs with more success and players are far more attractive. Also keep in mind a lot of Netball Clubs are combined or aligned with their respective football clubs and this can also be a factor.
