CHFL: Springbank shifts round 12 clash with Skipton

THE Central Highlands Football League will grace unfamiliar territory this Saturday.

Springbank has confirmed it will host Skipton at Korweinguboora in round 12 due to the poor state of its home ground at Wallace.

The GJ Gardner Tigers decided on the shift following last weekend's fixture with Waubra, where the senior game returned just two goals in 17-point win to the Roos.

Springbank secretary Leanne O'Neil said the committee's decision to move the games were not made lightly, but hoped it would allow the Wallace oval to be in a suitable condition to host the club's next home fixture against Daylesford on July 26.

"The oval at the Korweinguboora Recreation Reserve is currently used for cricket during the summer months and has not held a football fixture for a number of years, but the Springbank Football/Netball Club are doing all they can to ensure that it will be a perfect venue and up to scratch for Saturday," O'Neil said.

O'Neil said while all grades of football would be played at Korweinguboora, the six divisions of netball would be held at Wallace.

"People attending will only be charged admission at one venue, and will be issued with pass outs if they are intending on attending the other venue, with the exception of members of the Springbank Football/Netball Club, who are entitled to home game entry as part of their membership," she said.

O'Neil said canteen facilities would be available at both grounds.

The club's past players and supporters day - which includes a 1964 premiership reunion - was scheduled for this Saturday, but may have to be changed.

Following the Daylesford encounter, Springbank has just one other home game scheduled this season, against Learmonth on August 9.
