VFC Press release – 15 March 2016

VILLAGER FOOTBALL CLUB has taken the decision to cancel the “Derby Day” fixture with Hamiltons Rugby Club that was planned for Saturday 19 March 2016.

VILLAGERS FOOTBALL CLUB is currently in a rebuilding phase. Even though this fixture is deep rooted in both of our clubs history we believe that the rebuilding of the club has to be our number one priority. With 3 weeks till the season starts we believe the conditioning of our players has to be our main focus to ensure the players are physically prepared for what will be a very tough 2016 season.
The decision of cancelling this fixture was not taken lightly however we as a club feel that preparing for a Super A League status in all facets needs to be our first priority.
