The Eastland Eastern Football Netball League Division One 2021 Season Fixture is here, with a 10 team, 18 round competition meaning every club will play each other at both Home and Away.
Newly promoted Mitcham will unveil their 2019 Premiership Flag in Round One (April 10th) when they play host to Wantirna South. It will also be the first chance for the Tigers to use their new social rooms.
The remaining Round One fixtures see Ben Osborne’s East Ringwood host 2019 Runners Up Croydon, Upper Ferntree Gully welcome Park Orchards, Mooroolbark do battle with Lilydale at Heights Reserve and freshly relegated Montrose play Bayswater at home, in their first game outside of the League’s top division since 2013.
Anzac Round (Round Three) has five intriguing match ups as Montrose host Lilydale, Croydon welcome Bayswater, Park Orchards travel to East Ringwood, Mitcham head to Upper Ferntree Gully and Mooroolbark take on Wantirna South at home.
The notoriously even Division will wrap up on August 14th with Park Orchards hosting Bayswater, Upper Ferntree Gully taking on Mooroolbark at Kings Park, Croydon travelling to Walker Reserve to tackle Wantirna South, East Ringwood meeting Montrose at the Demon’s lair and Mitcham venturing to the Lilydale Sports Oval to play Brendan Fulton’s Falcons.
At the time of writing, just two fixtures have been scheduled outside of the traditional Saturday Afternoon time slot, with Bayswater and East Ringwood’s Round Four (Saturday Night – Bayswater Oval) and Round 13 (Sunday Afternoon – East Ringwood Reserve) clashes being played at alternative times.
As with all divisions, this is subject to change.
Domeney Reserve is also unavailable until Round 10, meaning Park Orchards have majority of their home fixtures in the second half of the season. The venues for their two earlier home games (Round Four against Croydon and Round Eight against Mitcham) are yet to be decided.
The Division One Finals Series will begin on the 21st of August, with the Grand Final played three weeks later on September 11th.
