The Great Southern Football League has appointed two new directors after its annual general meeting. Long-serving directors Geoff Oldfield and Alex Fry will not return with Scott Sedgwick and Kathleen Mier replacing them ahead of the 2023 GSFL season. They join GSFL current chair Terry Eaton, Geoff Brady, Iian Woods (deputy chair), Tristan Padfield, Richard Swarbrick, Tony Lazar, Jack Scanlan as directors while Paul Higginson remains the general manager. Sedgwick and Mier have taken on two-year terms on the GSFL board. Eaton said he was pleased with the additions ahead of the 2023 season. “It was sad to lose Alex (Fry) and Geoff (Oldfield), Alex was a huge contributor on the women’s side of things which he was very passionate about,” Eaton said. “We’ve identified Kath (Mier) at this stage, that’s probably going to be her portfolio but that will all be decided on Wednesday when we decide our chair and so on.” Mier will return as a director after serving on the board from 2016-2019. Sedgwick, an experienced football coach, will take on the director role for the first time. He coached Albany Sharks in 2017 and was also an assistant in a premiership-winning season with Railways. At the first directors’ meeting after the AGM, a chair will be elected. Eaton stepped up as the chair of the GSFL last year to replace the long-serving Joe Burton and he will return for a second season if re-elected at Wednesday’s meeting.
