Round 1 match postponement - Under 18 Football, Golden Square v Kangaroo Flat
The Bendigo Football Netball League have this evening been made aware that a parent of a player scheduled to play in tomorrow’s round 1 football match between Golden Square FNC and Kangaroo FNC is an employee of Don KR Castlemaine.
As a result of the recent positive COVID-19 case detected at Don KR Castlemaine, all employees have been encouraged to self-isolate and undergo routine testing at local screening clinics.
Although the player was not displaying any symptoms and it remains extremely unlikely the family member has been exposed in any form, due to the request for routine testing for all employees the League have decided to take a cautious approach by postponing the Under 18 football match scheduled to be played between Golden Square FNC and Kangaroo Flat FNC at the Queen Elizabeth Oval, 11.15am on Saturday 25th July.
This decision relates to the Under 18 football match only, with confidence there has been no cross-contact between club football and netball players, officials, or volunteers. Therefore, the scheduled 17 & Under netball match between the two teams will proceed as planned from 11.30am.
Further announcements will be made in due course pending the announcement of a likely negative test.
