Merry Christmas and a very happy new year!

I just wanted to wish everyone here whether posters (or lurkers) all the very best for Christmas and hope that 2023 is a very good year for you all.

In particular, I would like to say thanks to 'Robbo' for all his hard work on keeping this site ticking along.  His weekly fixture updates, ladder updates, and general news both on Frankston and the wider VFA/VFL competition is greatly appreciated.

Lets hope 2023 sees a real revival for this competition.

Season's greetings and best wishes to the forum community. Thanks to David and Robbo for keeping the forum running.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Barry Round.;; he was a champion of the game and a hero of past eras

Best wishes and a healthy and successful 2023 to all. Thank you David and Robbo for keeping the joint rolling along and giving us diehards a place to discuss (and vent!) on matters VFL. 

Sad times losing Barry Round - a VFL and VFA legend, Brownlow winner and Williamstown icon

Copied from Wiki..

After retirement from VFL football, he played and coached for several years for Williamstown in the Victorian Football Association, the second-highest level of football in Victoria, where he participated in their 1986 and captain-coached their 1990 premiership teams. He won the association best and fairest award, the J. J. Liston Trophy, in 1987 and won the 1990 Norm Goss Memorial Medal for best on field in the Grand Final.

Round captained the Williamstown Football Club in the 1989–1991 seasons, and he coached the club from 1989 to 1993. During his short time at the club, Round won 3 consecutive Gerry Callahan Medals (Williamstown best and fairest award) between 1987 and 1989. In 2009, Barry Round was named in the Williamstown Team of the Century in the Ruck Position. In May 2014, Williamstown FC held their 150-year celebration and inducted Round as part of their inaugural Hall Of Fame team. On the same night, he was elevated to Legend status at the club, being one of only 5 players to receive the honour.

What a day - Roundy passing away and Doc Martin finishing up after 10 seasons - things can only get better from here 

Cheers, enjoy and stay safe

Merry Christmas everyone. Here's hoping for a resurgence of some VFA clubs in 2023 and good health for everyone on here.
