Teenage grades in Gippsland League get July go-ahead

It looks like footy and netball will be able to start for the younger grades in the Gippsland League, although the seniors and reserves will need to wait a little longer for new protocols from AFL Victoria.

Being able to get good crowd numbers at games will be the key to going ahead with the season, albeit a shortened one.

President of the Bairnsdale club Murray Frew said all grades of both sports have been preparing.

"Bairnsdale has been training for the last month under the strict guidelines and the kids have been terrific, they've had really good numbers.

"The seniors have had a little less at training but the whole club - football and netball - are all ready to play.

"We're all up to speed on what we should be doing."
