Lack of players and state of facilities cause concerns for football netball club

News Post || News Now:

The Corowa Rutherglen Football Netball Club is expected to make a decision about its future in coming weeks. 

The club is struggling to field a seniors’ team this season amid ongoing concerns about player numbers and the status of its facilities.

A meeting to discuss the club’s future with members was held on Thursday night with about 300 people attending.

Club secretary Rowena Black said the board had recommended that members sit out the men’s and women’s seasons this year. 


She said one of the biggest issues the club had was the fact there were four local clubs drawing players from a relatively small community. 

“We all pull from a population base of 9,000 people and it’s just that we have declining population with young people,” she said.

“There are just not enough people to fill those spots and we’re constantly pulling players from each other.”

‘The landscape has to change’

Ms Black said a special meeting for a final vote about the club’s playing situation for 2023 would be held on February 27 or 28. 

She said the club was aiming for a reset in 2024.
