The 2018 VAFA season gets underway this Saturday with four home games including the Seniors hosting Kew at Boss James Reserve. Book your spot now for the first Home Game Luncheon of the year.
The Rovers had two solid and largely impressive practice matches against Doveton and Mordialloc and with the Easter long weekend done with, are now ready to hit the ground running in the season proper.
The Seniors face Kew who were also relegated from Premier C section last year and the Rovers will be keen to have a similar result to round one 2017 which was a big win to the green & gold against the same opponent.
We encourage all supporters to get along to Boss James Reserve and cheer on the boys. The Seniors commence at 2:00pm with the Reserves at 11:40am.
It’s also the first Home Game Luncheon of the year and as of Thursday morning there are already 50 people confirmed and we expect this to grow by Saturday.
