THE winds of change swept through all Bendigo Football Netball Clubs across summer.
For some the change was dramatic, others not so.
As new recruits gear up to have an impact and new coaches take charge, BFNL chairman Paul Byrne is confident the league is going from "strength to strength".
Bendigo FNL tackles new challenges
At Tuesday night's season launch at Bendigo Club, Byrne said there would be new features on and off-field in 2014.
One of the biggest is Kyneton's return to the senior football competition.
The Mark Adamson-coached Tigers are on home turf to tackle Eaglehawk on April 5.
"As a board we are thrilled Kyneton has a senior team back on field this year," said Byrne.
Many of the key stakeholders in AFL Central Victoria leagues were at the function.
Guest speaker was Wayne Campbell, a premiershjp wingman with Golden Square in 1989 who went on to play 297 games for Richmond and is in the Tigers Hall of Fame. He is now AFL national director of umpiring.
