Loddon Valley-North Central league 2018 grand final clash

THE neighboring Loddon Valley and North Central leagues are set to play their grand finals on the same day next year.

For the past three seasons AFL Central Victoria’s four senior leagues – Bendigo, Heathcote District, Loddon Valley and North Central – have held their grand finals on four separate Saturdays throughout September.

However, next year the Loddon Valley – scheduled to be held at Bridgewater under its rotational system – and North Central showcase days will clash on Saturday, September 15.

In what’s a jam-packed schedule across the region, the Maryborough-Castlemaine District league grand final at Princes Park will also be played that day, along with the Bendigo league preliminary final from 3pm at the QEO.
