THE Western Border Football League has been forced to postpone Saturday’s Round 8 clash between Casterton Sandford and East Gambier in response to the latest Victorian lockdown.

The Victorian Government has announced a seven-day lockdown due to the current coronavirus outbreak in the Greater Melbourne area.

“The game will be rescheduled after the two clubs get together and work out a date,” league president Michael Summers said.

“The league has suggested July 10, which is the bye round for the SA Country Championships.

“It will be discussed between all parties and we hope it is only a seven-day lockdown.”

Summers said the league was simply guided by what the Victorian Government stated, with the South Australian clubs not affected – other than the Bulldogs this round.

The Millicent v West Gambier and North Gambier v South Gambier games will go ahead as normal.
