The fields we use on Brens oval, fields 5 & 6 (east of the zoo) are getting hammered and the current council polices are unclear and in the interests of preserving the fields and maintaining a good relationship with other clubs and the City of Melbourne we have agreed to a flat shoes only policy on fields 5 & 6. Most players already play in runners and no one should be playing on any field in football boots as per our shoe policy
, but we have to make this stricter on fields 5 & 6.
The above image shoes the maximum amount of tread now allowed on shoes worn on fields 5 & 6.
Please ensure this passed on to all your players if you team is playing on those fields as soon as possible so they pack their runners.
Please note I´m frustrated too, but the short term pain this season will be worth it next Summer when we return to Princes Park and the new clubrooms.
