Hello and welcome to the start of the 2017 Eastern Eyre Football League (EEFL) season.

With some transfer movement into our league, I think it’s a fair assumption that we are in for a very even competition, which gives all of us as supporters hope at seeing our team be successful. 

I would like to welcome Kimba Transport, with Bulldog and Kirsty Gregory, as a new joint major sponsor of the EEFL. 

Their support is greatly appreciated and shows that they have a great community spirit.

Before we have even bounced the first ball of the local league, Jesse Kemp has played in Adelaide for the State country side, versing the city side – a big congratulations to him.  

This year we have implemented the compulsory wearing of pink vests to clearly identify the water boys as well as continuing the correct uniform for all officials.  

Some program highlights include the traditional Anzac Day start at Cowell, verse Eastern Ranges, with Ports hosting Kimba Distrists at Arno Bay on the following Saturday.  

Saturday, May 6 is a twilight game at Kimba, while on Saturday, May 20 we play Mid West at Waramboo.

This year’s grand final will be held at cowell on Saturday, September 9 and, fingers crossed, we will see Corey ‘Boris’ Enright don a Kimba Tigers jumper on Saturday, July 22.  

Matt Chunky Vandeleur has been given the big job of coaching and defending the Mortlock Shield.

This is a great chance to showcase our league’s strength so I urge all clubs and supporters, to get right behind all of our interleague sides and coaches.

We are involved in the greatest game in the world, so if you can get to help out your local club please do.

It makes the experience even greater.

Enjoy the year, and best wishes.
