AFL South East (AFLSE) announce that Pearcedale-Baxter Junior Football Club’s (PBJFC) appeal to move from the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League (MPJFL) to the Frankston and Districts Junior Football League (FDJFL) has been successful.
As a result, the club will enter the FDJFL for the 2020 season.
This will incorporate their admittance to the Regional Top-Age competition involving the FDJFL and South East Juniors (SEJ) from Under 15 to 17 Boys and Under 16 to 18 Girls.
PBJFC President Darron Vagg said the news provided a positive step for the club going forward.
“We made this application for the benefit of our players who are now able to play in a divisional model and in a region which is more geographically aligned to our club’s location,” Vagg said.
“We see that this will bring benefits to our parents and players alike and we look forward to working with AFL South East and the FDJFL to bring this exciting venture to fruition.”
AFLSE Regional General Manager John Anderson was pleased by the news that the PBJFC would be entering the FDJFL for the 2020 season.
“It’s exciting for the region and we look forward to working with a progressive club to help it reach its full potential,” Anderson said.
