VAFA SEASON BACK ON HOLD
COVID has struck again with Lockdown 6 from 8pm Thursday August 5 meaning our final home match of the season v Oakleigh is now abandoned.
If the lockdown ends after the seven days forecast the competition can resume with rounds 17 and 18 to be played before the finals series starts.
This is cruel blow for all players, coaches and support staff.
Last Saturday’s clash with ladder leader Old Camberwell should have given the club expectation of a competitive finals series.
After being torched in a six goals to one first quarter the Two Blues rallied and twice threatened to at least level the scores.
But Old Camberwell proved too classy yet the 18 point margin showed with a more consistent four quarter effort there is not an unbridgeable gap between the teams.
ADAM HALL WAS TO BOW OUT
ADAM Hall was due to don the Prahran Assumption jumper for the 170th and last time at Toorak Park on Saturday.
Here’s hoping the season can resume and we can give the popular Hally a rousing send off.
His dedication as long suffering Reserves playing coach has been above and beyond the call of duty as he has often had to plead and cajole mates to play on match eve and in many cases game day to fill a team.
Hally (second from right) is pictured here celebrating with teammates the clubs twin premierships in 2017.
UNFORTUNATELY several functions and re-unions have been cancelled due to the latest COVID lockdown.
Our premier event for the year, the Team Of The Decade, has now been postponed twice but we are determined to hold the event early in 2022.
