JUNIOR clubs have voted unanimously in support of AFL Riverina's plans to keep hopes of playing finals football alive.
Should regional lockdown finish at the end of this week, Wagga and District Junior Football League (WDJFNL) will hold semi finals this Sunday, before the grand final a week later.
A seven-day extension to lockdown would push the schedule back into the following week. If there is any further delays, a mid-week grand final in the weeks starting on September 20 or 27 will be considered.
In the South West Junior Football and Netball League, a grand final will be played on September 18 if there are no further lockdown extensions.
