THE Goulburn Valley Football League doesn't expect Echuca to make the move to the Bendigo Football League in 2015.
The BFL has made clear its intentions to try to lure Echuca from the GVFL in 2015.
However, GVFL general manager Keith Wellman believes the Murray Bombers would be unlikely to change leagues.
"They (the BFL) are entitled to do what they want to do if they want to make an approach, but I wouldn't think the Echuca Football Club would be too interested in leaving the GVFL," Wellman said on Thursday.
There was some friction between the GVFL and Echuca earlier this year after the Murray Bombers weren't granted their traditional Easter Saturday home game.
Instead, the Murray Bombers played at Rochester on Easter Saturday.
"We understand Echuca was a bit disgruntled earlier in the year in relation to not getting an Easter game," Wellman said.
"There was a bit of friction there earlier, but we understand their president Brett Stevens has overcome that friction.
"We had a delegates meeting last night and there was certainly no mention of it (Bendigo)."
Echuca is a former BFL club.
The Murray Bombers played in the BFL until 1973, before joining the GVFL where they have since won five senior premierships.
"We'd be very disappointed if Echuca left our league," Wellman said.
"They are a vital part of the GVFL and over the years have been a great asset to the league."
Echuca president Brett Stevens last week said that any interest in joining the BFL in 2015 was on hold until at least after the club's annual general meeting in November.
