Well I hear Highett want to stay in South C 1 And 3 Parkdale United and Middle Park with struggle again but will anything is possible plus I'm also hearing Heatherton could be fielding upto 2 sides now gone on recruiting mission a lot of ex players coming back
I wouldn't mind knowing who your source is.... but I can assure you this is categorically wrong! Highett have not requested to stay in south C. As stated in a post earlier the reason for playing South C had nothing to do with the performance of the first 11 or trying to save money on umpires as you also suggested in another post. Why would a team who made the grand final of South A (with no paid players that season either), request to play South C with basically the same line up the next season? Highett requested to stay in South A last season due to the issue with the second 11 (the second 11 lost every 2 day game outright but were expected to go up as well.....) Due to Heatherton still being in the comp until round 2 the only available position according to the league was in South C which Highett accepted. I hope this post clarifies any misconceptions that people may have and I can assure you that Highett will be playing in whatever grade the league decides to place them in this season.

Looks as though Kingston/Hawthorns 5ths & 6th are joining the south set up which will help a lot, interesting to see where the vtca will place them?

With players leaving Hawthorn Monash and Kingston Saints will the new Kingston Hawks have enough players for 5th and 6th teams as where there play maybe South C3 and South D1 if there can get numbers

Has there been any official word on any changes to senior division 2s competition is it staying the same or changing structure like was potentially mooted.

Well the gradings the VTCA has put out has kingston-hawthorn in south div but parkdale untied and middle parks 1sts go to south seconds which is a division of 18 teams including two McKinnon teams... Interesting.

Gee those 2 would be incredibly dissapointed - playing against 2nd XIs and missing out to Kingston Hawthorn

That would be your 3rds and 4ths in South Seconds yes? Why wouldnt they be in South C1?
It's our 2s and 3s, our 4s will be south c1. Would be better if the snr seconds comp was split into a 10 and 8 team grade in both the north and south.. Would be impossible to play everyone and if the top 4 remained you could have your season finished by November!

Anything come out of the AGM last night, fixtures?
I fell asleep during the 15 minute presentation by Kukri, which nobody listened to as they were checking the Ashes scores on their phones!!

The 18 team comps was obviously a talking point. Apparently a 10 & 8 can't be done – so we are left with an 18 team comp. Still a final 4 which will make for some long seasons for a lot of players – particularly as the standard will differ greatly you'd think. They mentioned weighting the fixture – but that will be based on 1st XIs, rather than performances of 2nd XIs. It will be interesting. Couple of quirks – Parkdale united and Middle Park have their 1st XIs in South Seconds. Also Heatherton are listed as having 2 teams – didn’t they fold last year, or is my memory playing up??

I don’t think they are making any headway with CV – but I reckon they are reluctant to do so

They have plenty of money in the bank and are looking to keep it there!!

The 18 team division with a top 4 is a disgrace, at the very least have a top 8 and just play a 2 day grand final..

The 4 day Grand Final is the best for Senior Div., just look at the last two. You don't seem to like anything that's done in the vtac
4 or 2 day grand final not the issue here.. Just finding a way to keep an 18 team comp relevant for more than just a handful of sides by December. A top 8 would achieve this but we only have 3 weekends to play finals so the 4 day final would have to make way just for the 18 team grade.

The new name hasn’t changed you!!!!! Still don't like people expressing an opinion that might differ from you

One question for you - would the Senior GF have been any worse if it was played under the same conditions as every game that was played that season (apart from a couple of one day games)??
