Clarence Valley football returning to normal

June 17th, 2022

Football in the Clarence Valley is returning to normal as grounds dry out, making them available for play.

The rains that brought the floods in February and three months of non-stop rain left most of the Clarence Valley’s fields unplayable.

With the rain easing and the sun coming out three weeks ago, fields have been drying out and coming back online.

Clarence Valley Council staff have been working to prepare fields and ensure they’re viable for the remainder of the season based on no further abnormal weather.

NCF met with Clarence Valley Council officers in Grafton today to get an update on the grounds.

NCF was advised:

  • Wajard Park in Coutts Crossing is available for play this weekend (see the photo taken today, 17/6/2022)
  • Rushforth Park #1 – 24/25/26 June
  • Rushforth Park #2 & #3 – several weeks away
  • Barnier Park – Terry West Oval – next week
  • Wooli – Two weeks away

At the meeting, NCF thanked council staff for their commitment and efforts to prepare fields for play.

“It’s been a frustrating start to the football season for players, their families, clubs and their volunteers,” NCF General Manager, Andrew Woodward, said.

“We thank everyone for hanging in there and being ready to play when and where they can.

“Councils have been under a lot of pressure to return their communities to normal following the abnormal weather.

“Councils up and down the coast have done a great job repairing and readying fields for play,” Mr Woodward said.
