If you haven’t already seen it, the 2020 DOW BFNL fixture was released on Tuesday. Here’s what we think you can pencil into your diaries looking ahead to 2020.
Round 1- Geelong Amateur vs Anglesea at KFC Oval (Football)
What a way to open up the season. Geelong Amateur will host Anglesea in what looms as a stunning clash to begin the new season. Ammos will be looking to build on last year’s Preliminary Final run with a young list that has recently been complemented with some recruits like St Mary’s star Zak Sherman. Anglesea meanwhile will be looking to prove they are the real deal, and what better way to do that than beating the Pegs on their home patch.
Round 2- Portarlington vs Newcomb at Portarlington Recreation Reserve (Football)
If you’re looking for something to do on Good Friday, look no further than Portarlington. The beautiful coastal location hosts the standalone match between the Demons and Power, and the Portarlington ground is ideal for spectators. Get on down. Torquay will host Ocean Grove in a twilight fixture on the same day, too.
Round 7- Torquay vs Geelong Amateur at McCartney Oval (Netball)
The 2018 A Grade Netball Grand Finalists will have to wait seven rounds until they get another crack at each other, but it should be worth the wait. Both teams are star studded with Ammos headed by league medallist Ash Salter and the Tigers by Courtney Cuolahan.
Round 9- Torquay vs Barwon Heads at McCartney Oval (Football)
The 2018 senior football Grand Final combatants have to wait a further two weeks than thier netball counterparts for a Grand Final rematch, but it should be no less entertaining. Torquay have had some big name additions like St Joseph’s forward Lucas Anderson after going down to the Seagulls in last season’s decider.
Round 10- Newcomb vs Ocean Grove at Newcomb Sand & Soil Oval (Football/Netball)
The lone Sunday fixtured match in 2020, the Grubbers trip to Newcomb is the perfect way to get your Sunday footy and netball fix during the middle of the season. The match also falls in Round 10, which is a Mental Health Round supported by Beyond Blue and Read the Play, with various activations all weekend at local football and netball.
