Interleague is back with a bang this weekend as the 32nd Goulburn Campaspe Junior Football League (GCJFL) Interleague Carnival will be held at Rochester Recreation Reserve on Sunday 20 May.
With the first games to commence at 9am, 15 teams representing five different Leagues in four different age groups will compete in the largest event on the Goulburn Murray’s football calendar.
GCFL President Paul Shortis views this event as an important showcase for the region’s best junior footballers.
“The interleague carnival is a massive event on our calendar and I am really pleased that it is being supported by the local Leagues” he said.
“We are looking forward to a big day watching all of the junior football talent on display from across the region.”
The Carnival is an important opportunity for talented players to showcase their skills according to AFL Goulburn Murray Region General Manager Martin Gleeson.
“The opportunity for players to represent their club and their League in competition is a fantastic one which profiles the best talent in community under age football” he said.
“The standard of play is always very high and the level of organisation behind the scenes is extensive to make sure the day runs smoothly.”
“The advent of the AFL Goulburn Murray Academy adds extra status to this carnival with the games providing the Academy selectors with the opportunity to view the region’s best talent competing against each other as they start to prepare their squads for next year’s programs.”
