Here in Gippsland, we have such a strong community when it comes to sports.

As it comes to the end of the football and netball seasons, we congratulate our mob on the success they produce time and time again.

Here at GEGAC, we notice the amazing effort and grit that our community has shown in this year’s football and netball competitions.

Loads of our community had been invited to the league vote count for both the East Gippsland Football Netball League and the Omeo District Football Netball League, where some won awards.
