SANFL representatives were present as the Far West Football League recently hosted its delegates meeting.

The league representatives were in Ceduna to deliver important information regarding support services, grants and general country football matters.

Manager of community football Matthew Duldig, football operations manager Scott Patching, Eyre Peninsula football operations coordinator Richard Murphy and Eyre Peninsula game development coordinator Andrew Taheny all spoke on their respective SANFL roles, outlining how they could assist clubs in the Far West region.

Great emphasis was placed on the importance of football on Eyre Peninsula, as well as the expertise that SANFL community football staff can offer clubs should they request it.

The chairman of the newly appointed Eyre Peninsula Football Council Tony Irvine also addressed the meeting.

Mr Irvine gave an overview of the roles both he and Mr Murphy would be playing in keeping clubs and leagues throughout Eyre Peninsula viable for the foreseeable future.

Far West Football League president Ron Redford said this was a valuable meeting for clubs.

“It was a most important meeting,” Mr Redford said.

“The information delivered to the clubs will hold them in good stead and our thanks go to all our visitors for making the effort to travel to Ceduna.”
