Welcome one and all to the 2022 Great Southern Football League season.

I look forward to the six clubs shining in the coming season as we continue creating an environment from 16s through to league level for players to develop and grow plus give their supporters something to look forward to each round.

We have just concluded another very good season of women’s football with a large crowd attending the grand final at McLean Park to see Denmark-Walpole and Railways put on an excellent display on the night.

As an executive, we’ve been working our way into the GSFL strategic plan with directors now looking to work through their portfolios, with all clubs aware of the plan to work to.

No doubt COVID will provide issues, however, we look forward to providing the clubs, supporters and public a plan that we can all work within to play as many games as possible.

Umpiring is a very important component of our game and we will continue to support the growing group and with more numbers we can hopefully service all grades plus the juniors.

If you’re keen to get involved contact our umpires co-ordinator Ryan Tindale. Sponsorship is another important part of football, for the clubs and league to sustain their involvement in the Great Southern, so when you have the opportunity please support those who support us.

Finally, thanks to the team at the Albany Advertiser for their fantastic support of football and other community sport.

I wish all the players and teams all the very best in the new season and I’m sure it promises to be another exciting year of football in our region.
