Sarah Scott our Friday Night Coordinator writes a report for the record every week.
Below is her Round 9 Report:
We have officially past the half way mark of the season, with seven games remaining in the season it isn’t long now until the countdown begins to finals. It is still great to see so many people coming and supporting our junior netballer on those cold, wet and freezing Friday Nights at Kardinia Park.
Over the past week the Football Netball Geelong Facebook page has been updated. This now will be a form of communication we will use on a Friday night for wet weather or any other cancellations. Just go into to Facebook and like the Football Geelong News page, and if there are any cancellations on a Friday Night the information will be posted on AFL Barwon News Facebook page.
