A review of the remainder of season 2014, has identified scope to create "Catch-up" weekend(s).
This will greatly assist completing current and potential deferred/washed out games while still completing the season as originally scheduled with Grand finals on Aug 30/31, including Championship Divisions playing at Hensley.
Division 2 and Pennant finals will remain at Heffron with all the pomp and ceremony given to all finals.
All grades will finish competition games.
"Catch-up" weekend. Left free to complete catch up games.
(NB ESFA will work with clubs to reschedule games for this weekend)
Finals series commence. Championship & Div 2 play a 3 week finals series.
Pennant finals will be over 2 weeks.
2nd week of Finals series including Pennant "Grand Finals"
Grand Finals for Championships (including Boys U18) and Division 2
NB Scheduling a "Catch-up weekend" on Aug 9/10 not only allows time for catch up games, it avoids having a week off during the finals as the Hensley Grand Final booking for Aug 30th/31st could not be brought forward.
"14 game" Competitions:
Boys: 12’s Championship / 13’s Division 2 / 14’s Division 2 / 15’s Championship
Girls: 12’s Championship
Scope exists in these competitions to allow a further catch up weekend on July 12th/13th
i.e. last weekend of School holidays and still finish competition games in line with all other competitions i.e. Aug 2nd/3rd and avoid time off during finals series.
This will involve:
Rd 12 currently scheduled for July 12/13 being moved to Aug 2/3
ESFA rescheduling as many of the currently unplayed games onto the weekend of the 12th and 13th of July as possible including those below :

NB. Under 18s draw will be updated shortly - please be patient
Nothing is ever easy and Murphy's Law could well still come into play but in the meantime we believe, with your ongoing support, that these changes will assist in ensuring the competition can be completed as efficiently as possible with all junior players having as much football as possible!
