#9 you miss the point, it shows that Junior football is alive and well if the likes of lesser known clubs can Develop players. #9 you grow up and get over it as you have only put a dampner on a good day

#7 that is awesome stuff, Clarence can feel unlucky not to be in the V League. Only Knights of the V league teams won the KO cup and some lesser name clubs won like Beachside, Derwent Newtown, well done to all


Performance had nothing to do with, they were all unsuccessful because of not meeting the criteria outlined. Get over it!

Do we know yet what this criteria was? Do the unsuccesful clubs have some feedback yet so they can rectify their issues?

Yeah that makes sense #3 bringing in u/15 players to win an u17 game . Team stacking gone wrong lmao .
On a sad note . Not so good the form of the Olympia parents booing when their opposition are taking a penalty or swearing out loud at the ref . Its kids football for crying out loud.
