The new-look 11-team Veolia Limestone Coast Women’s Football League is nearly ready for its 2019 kick-off.
The season starts on February 3 (Full draw appears below).
There are three new teams – Mundulla, Casterton Sandford and Penola – in the competition which was won in 2018 by Kybybolite in its first year in the league.
The season will start on Sunday February 3 and conclude with a grand final round on Sunday March 31 at South Gambier.
The format will be similar to previous years in that each team has the opportunity to host home rounds, with some split rounds being scheduled to allow this to occur.
All matches will be on Sundays except for March 11 which will be a Monday depending on availability due to the long weekend.
Some highlights will be the first round being held at Mundulla where the home team will debut against last year’s grand finalist Millicent and the rematch of last year’s grand finalists Kybybolite and Millicent on Monday, March 11.
Kyby will host a home round on Sunday, February 24, and Penola will host half a split round on Sunday, March 17.
The top players will be vying to be selected in the SE Women’s team at the end of the season to compete in the State Country Championships at Port Pirie in July.
The league encourages anyone interested in playing AFL to contact their local club.
The LCWFL thanks Veolia as the naming rights sponsor of the competition and values their continuing support.
