Clubs in the Northern Inland Zone have supported a plan to play finals, should the NSW government lift the lockdown and permits community sport.
Clubs met online via Zoom with Northern Inland Regional Coordinator Toby McVey to discuss plans coming out of lockdown.
Premier Division, Namoi League and Tamworth Competition Clubs have all agreed to plan to play the finals series in September, if allowed.
Should the lockdown continue past 10 September, finals will not proceed, and the season will conclude.
Northern Inland’s plan for finals series will include a week for all youth and senior teams to return to training before semi-finals on 17 and 18 September and grand finals on 24 and 25 September.
Tamworth MiniRoos (5-11yrs) will also play their final round of scheduled matches on 11 September to provide these players one last opportunity for winter football, should lockdown be lifted.
The various MiniRoos run by clubs will have committee meetings this week to determine whether they plan to play if lockdown is lifted or call their seasons now.
