North Melbourne to field standalone VFL team in 2018 after parting ways with Werribee
NORTH Melbourne will field a standalone VFL team next year.
The Kangaroos have parted ways with VFL affiliate Werribee and will field their own reserves team for the first time since 1999.
Werribee will also field its own team in 2018.
North Melbourne general manager of football Cameron Joyce said the move would further develop the Kangaroos young players.
“This is a significant step for us as a footy club and in line with our strategic aims and objectives heading into an exciting new era,” he told the club website.
“There is a lot of work to be done in order to prepare for next season, but first and foremost, we are focused on ensuring that our current alignment with Werribee ends on the highest possible note.”
North Melbourne discontinued a partnership with VFL club North Ballarat at the end of last year.
I hope the powers that be at Sandy TAKE NOTE!
When St Kilda gets Morrabbin up and running they will also dump the Zebras quisk smart and have their own reserves..
No doubt the pro Saints mob in power now will get out and let others clean up the mess aka Nth Ballarat.
