Begins April 1st
2017 Strathmore Community Bank Division 2 Full Fixture | CLICK HERE
STRATHMORE Community Bank Division 2 will be entering its fifth full season in 2017, and we’re expecting it to be a belter.
As showcased on GRAND FINAL DAY, the division has only gone from strength to strength and with Jacana now boasting the likes of a Cameron Cloke in its forward 50, we have plenty to look forward to in Season 2017.
- Round 1: Burnside Heights will again host East Sunbury under lights to open the season on April 1.
- Round 3: Roxburgh Park will host East Sunbury on ANZAC Day, which in 2017 falls on a Tuesday.
- Round 4: East Sunbury’s Round 4 clash with Jacana will be played on the Queen’s Birthday Weekend (Saturday June 10), in between Rounds 8 & 9. This will be the only game played across the entire EDFL on that day.
- Round 2: In what looms as a massive early clash that may well establish the early pecking order, the Northern Saints will play their first home game as a Division 2 club against the early premiership favourite, Jacana.
- Round 6: A new Division 2 rivalry was born back in Round 3, 2016. There’s now always a bit of interest whenever Keilor Park faces Roxburgh Park. They’ll renew hostilities on May 20 at Keilor Park… in a day game.
- There will be no Division 2 football during the Easter Weekend (between Rounds 2 & 3).
- The Division will take a break on the weekend of May 13 (between Rounds 5 & 6) as the EDFL faces the Eastern Football League in the AFL Victoria Community Championships.
- The Finals will begin on Saturday August 26, with the Grand Final to be played on Saturday, September 9.
