GOULBURN Campaspe Junior Football League has announced it will run a season, although it is yet to confirm a starting date.

The league is now in discussions with its 12 affiliated clubs to establish how many teams will be competing, with a deadline of July 10 for clubs to confirm teams and numbers before a fixture is released mid-July.

League operations manager Nate Dedman said an eight-to-10-week season was on the cards.

“Health, fitness, life skills and personal growth are all positively impacted by our children’s participation in junior sport,” Dedman said.

“Our executive and operational committee have been working tirelessly to ensure that young footballers in the Goulburn Campaspe region will have the opportunity to participate in the game that they love.

“As a league we understand the long-term importance of junior participation, as well as the future of our local senior leagues and the long-term health of community football.

“We’re extremely lucky to be able to re-introduce junior sport. This is a privilege and we’ll be doing everything we can to provide a safe environment for everyone.”
