Under 18s 'are go'
LODDON Valley Football League wants a six-team under 18 competition next season.
The league has thrown its support behind moves for a combined team from Pyramid Hill, Calivil, Seprentine and Mitiamo.
And the Bendigo-based junior club Dockers could be part of the under 18 Loddon action.
Long-time Dockers official Justin Gee said the club was canvassing support for the idea.
The club fields under 14 and under 16 teams in the Bendigo junior competition and has 10 players now over age.
Club official Justin Gee said: “We are exploring what interest there is.”
“If there is enough interest, we will run with it ... if not, we’ll shelve the idea for another year,” he said.
Gee said the Dockers were not aligned to any club but had one of the highest retention rates for players continuing to take the field for higher age and senior sides.
