2019 TDFL DRAW
The 2019 DUNNE'S CRANES TDFL Draw has been released
The Tallangatta & District Football League are pleased to release the 2019 season Tallangatta & District Football League Fixture. As is usually the case compiling the TDFL Draw has its challenges around the allocation of games for Wodonga Saints who share the Martin Park Venue with the Wodonga Bulldogs.
The Wahgunyah FNC Club who also share their Recreation Reserve with the Wahgunyah Speedway have 3 weekends that they cannot be scheduled at home.
The Wodonga Saints will this year play 2 scheduled Home games at Sandy Creek being Round 1 V Chiltern and Round 17 V Rutherglen due to Martin Park being unavailable for these scheduled home games. This is viewed as a positive move all-round with Wodonga Saints and their opposition getting to play on the Leagues showcase ground and the Sandy Creek ground having 2 more weekends of use across the season.
The season will commence with Round 1 on March 30th, 2019.
Round 1 will see 2018 Senior Premiers Kiewa SC unveil the Premiership flag at home in a grand final rematch V Thurgoona.
Wahgunyah host Rutherglen to unveil the Under 14’s Premiership flag and in Round 2 Thurgoona & Tallangatta will be at home to unveil their 2018 Reserves and Under 17 Premiership flags.
The TDFL will see its first Home and Away night game played in Round 3 when Kiewa SC host Dederang MB under lights at Kiewa’s home ground.
A Bye round has been scheduled for the Easter weekend.
ANZAC day falls on the Thursday after Easter, Round 4 April 27th, 2019 will be our ANZAC round.
An Interleague Bye round has been scheduled on the 18th May 2019.
A General Bye is also scheduled for the 6th July 2019 which is the middle weekend of the Victorian School holidays.
The Tallangatta & District Football League Clubs should be mostly satisfied with the draw outcome as 21 of 26 club requests have been able to be filled in compiling the TDFL 2019 Fixture.
