Junior Sides Pulled

Junior Sides Pulled

Junior football numbers locally continue to be at a concerning low

With two local clubs having to withdraw their under 18s sides, concerns around junior footy numbers continue.

South Colac have pulled its side out of the CDFNL Under18s season, while the Colac Imperials girls Under 18s side will also withdraw from the Barwon League.

Imperials Senior Women's Coach Tim Hassett says it's disappointing to see several sides pull the pin, with low numbers simply proving too hard to field sides.

"We had seven (players) last weekend so we withdrew the team for last Saturday and again we followed it up during the week and unfortunately we withdrew our Under 18 team from the competition for this season," Hassett said.

Imps women's senior captain Kaila Morris, says the silver lining is some junior guns can now focus on senior footy.

"I suppose it's a positive for our senior team, it'll boost our side with a lot of players who've got a lot of skill and background behind them with the five Falcons girls," Morris said.

The senior side suffered a big defeat in it's second grading game, losing by 160 points to Geelong Amateur.
