GREAT MESSAGE FROM EFNL

Great message from the Eastern Football Netball League this morning, NO easy task running one of the largest Football competitions in land during a global pandemic. While plenty were quick to criticise the decision making, The Mitcham Football Club applauds Troy and his team for the great leadership shown. Here’s hoping for a bigger and better 2021 football season. Until then stay safe and look out for family and friends that might be doing it tough – Together we will get though this

EFNL STATEMENT BELOW 

2020 has been a huge challenge and struggle for everyone around the world with a global pandemic ruining any plans that had been laid.

From businesses, to sporting events, to clubs and everything in between COVID 19 has left its mark.

There has been no kicking off the dew.
No burger with the lot or steamed dimmies with a generous helping of soy sauce.
No sitting behind the goals, no dribble kicks, no over the top celebrations, no obstructions, no pack marks, no last minute goals.

There’s been no football or netball, despite all the best efforts.

The EFNL just wants to take a moment to thank every single one of its members.

Every player, every partner, every parent, every volunteer, every coach, every committee member, every fan, every sponsor.

Thanks for standing by us, waiting patiently for decisions to be made – whether you agreed with them or not. Your support has not gone unnoticed.

We know and appreciate how much effort everyone has been put into getting a season up;

The sleepless nights, the endless zoom meetings and never-ending list of guidelines and protocols. We’re sure it made you feel anxious and question your role as a volunteer, but we are beyond grateful that you were up for the challenge.

Most importantly, thanks for seeing that there is a bigger picture and understanding that every once in a while, there is something bigger in life than football and netball.

2020 has shown that we must put the greater good of the community ahead of our own needs, wants and desires.

Fighting Covid-19 is the ultimate team event and the EFNL community is by far the best team around.

As we transition to season 2021, there will be many challenges to overcome and COVID 19 may still be one of them.

But we will find a way to bring football and netball back to the Eastern Community.

Stay safe, stay healthy and stay prepared, because 2021 will be upon us in no time.

And it’s going to be the biggest yet.
