The VAFA has officially approved the transfer of St Francis Xavier OC to the Southern FNL for the 2020 season.
VAFA CEO Brett Connell said “while disappointed the club has chosen to transfer, we understand their reasoning and wish them all the best for their future”.
“The VAFA would also like to thank the SFNL for remaining in contact and objective throughout the window where the club was considering its options.”
St Francis Xavier entered the VAFA in 2007 and recently claimed their second Division 4 premiership.
The VAFA Football Operations Department is currently considering all potential section structures for 2020 based on feedback received at the Divisional Meeting held earlier this year.
