The EFNL have advised the 2020 season has been delayed until May 2nd 2020. This will be reviewed on April 14th.
The Devils have stopped formal training sessions and cancelled all remaining practice games.
All players are continuing to regularly train privately in small groups with programs to follow from the Senior coach. Our players will be accountable to each other through sharing pictures and videos of themselves training in a private (players only) Facebook group to help keep the group engaged and active.
We know it’s important to comply with advice and direction from the relevant governing authorities and medical experts. We also know everyone is in the same situation, so we will continue to do what we can to be as prepared as we can.
There is no surety of the season starting on May 2nd, but we do expect to play a shortened season if and when it commences. We will deal with how it will work when we know more.
We have no known cases of the Covid-19 virus in our club’s large community, but we understand it is contagious and potentially harmful to some people. We want to help contain the spread of this virus and will continue to adapt to the directions as they emerge.
The Season Launch has been cancelled, and we will review future off field events as we know more over time.
Well Done to Ty Huckstepp on playing his 200th game for the Devils. Ty who Captained the U19 Premiership side in 2000, went on to play many Senior games over the years. Ty was a member of the Div 2 Reserves Premiership team in 2003.
Ty is a strong and reliable defender who leads by example with high marking and team first actions. Thanks Ty for being a part of our club for many years, we have loved watching you and enjoying a laugh after the game with you.
