A ninth team has been added to A Plus Labour Solutions Division 2 this year, with St Mary’s promoted from Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3, while no team was relegated after the 2018 season.
The race for a top-four spot looks to be very open entering the new campaign, while sides have another season without the threat of relegation to ensure a 10-team second division in 2020.
The action begins on Saturday April 6.
The opening round matches are:
Epping vs Whittlesea at Epping Recreation Reserve (back oval)
Thomastown vs Eltham at Main Street Recreation Reserve
Fitzroy Stars vs Diamond Creek at Sir Douglas Nicholls Oval
Watsonia vs St Mary’s at A.K. Lines Reserve (4:10pm start)
