All Junior Matches Abandoned 9-11 March 2018

Hi all,

After conducting ground inspections this morning, we have deemed both fields for tonight’s U15.5/Colts unfit and unsafe to play, likewise following these inspections fields for Saturday’s Senior Preseason Cup and Sunday’s Junior Round will be unfit to play due to no opportunity for ground staff to prepare and repair these grounds for our players to play.

This decision has not been taken lightly and I stress we have put the players/umpires duty of care and the overall welfare of our grounds at the highest level of consideration.

We are very hopeful that the weather subsides over the weekend and allows our ground staff the entirety of next week to prepare grounds for Round 2 matches of U15.5/Colts and Round 3 matches of Sunday Fixtures.

AFL Cairns Juniors will hold a Presidents Meeting in the coming fortnight (Date and Time TBC) to discuss the potential rescheduling of games in the future to give all players the opportunity to play the scheduled matches.

I appreciate everyone’s understanding and would appreciate you passing this information onto all members of your club affected by this round’s abandonments. I will update our Facebook page and have a message displayed on our website.

Kind Regards



Tim Mackrill

Operations Manager – AFL Cairns Juniors
