H O L I D A Y WIN V O U C H E R S Football andnetball is back…finally T he end of summer means it’s time to put on your club colours and get out and support your team on the field and court, after 12 months in the COVID wilderness. COVID restrictions forced the complete shutdown of both Omeo District and East Gippsland football and netball last season, while the Gippsland League managed just a handful of underage matches. So, the season has been a long time coming. Bairnsdale Football Netball Club’s Gippsland League season gets underway on Saturday, April 10, with an away trip to Warragul, as does the Omeo District Football Netball League season. East Gippsland Football Netball League has a later start than usual, kicking off on ANZAC Day weekend. Gee it’s good to have footy back.
