The committee of the Berwick Football Club last night voted in favour to ratify the recommendation of the advisory committee to align with the Yarra Ranges Football League for season 2019. The advisory committee was made up of some current committee members, life members, players and sponsors and it was their unanimous advice that the Yarra Ranges was the league best suited to the Berwick Football Club, at least in the near future. The decision took into consideration all the elements raised at the special meeting 6 weeks ago with an emphasis on retaining Saturday netball, local rivalries and the strong culture of the club whilst ensuring we could maintain maximum local exposure for our sponsors. It has been an emotive and drawn out process that we are glad to have behind us so we can again focus on the club. We also identify there may be those who don’t necessarily agree with this direction but I implore you to remain strong with the Magnificent Wickers as it’s the people who make the club, not where we play.
