2016 footy fixture

THE 2016 Southern Football League season gets under way on April 2 and clubs, players and supporters are getting ready to run back onto the field. Last season ended with Claremont sweeping the Seniors, Reserves and Under 18 competitions, ending New Norfolk's decade-long dominance of the league.

SFL president Madeleine Ogilvie has welcomed news that the league's finals series will return to North Hobart Oval for the first time this decade. "It is great to see the hard work of so many volunteers at all levels at our member clubs over the last few years coming to fruition," Ms Ogilvie said. "The return of finals action to the traditional heartland of September action at North Hobart this year is the icing on the cake,” she said.

The first round will see Cygnet host New Norfolk, Sorell welcome the reigning premier Claremont to Pembroke Park, Brighton travel to the TCA Ground to play Hobart and Dodges Ferry open the gates for the season to take on Huonville, whilst Lindisfarne has the bye and an extra week to prepare for their first game.

The roster season will be completed after 21 rounds, when the final five will play off in a finals series for the right to play on that one day in September when the Grand Final will be held at North Hobart Oval on September 24.
