CHFL Anzac Day matches to be special tributes

CENTRAL Highlands Football League clubs Springbank, Buninyong, Clunes and Bungaree will make special Anzac Day tributes on Friday.

The quartet is making CHFL history by playing in the first non-Saturday Anzac Day fixtures.

In keeping with the Anzac Day theme, financial contributions from proceeds from the games at Wallace and Clunes will go RSL branches.

Players in the Springbank and Buninyong clash are being encouraged to attend Anzac Day commemorations early in the day, while the Clunes and Bungaree encounter will be preceded by a service.

Footballers and netballers will also play for Anzac Day medallions.

The CHFL is expecting bumper crowds at each venue, with the Springbank and Buninyong match-up one of the biggest games of the season so far.

The Springbank and Buninyong senior football match will start at 2.30pm, while Clunes will take on Bungaree under lights from 6.30pm.

Springbank and Buninyong junior football and netball will be played on Saturday.
