Norm Minns oval hopeful
Wangaratta Council is serious about getting the Ovens and Murray Football-Netball League grand final back to the Norm Minns oval, for the first time in decades.
After hosting the JLT Community Series match between Richmond v. Essendon over the weekend, it is hopeful to prove as a worthy location. With a crowd of near 8,000 and with O and M board members in attendance, the ground was a viable option.
Current redevelopment works at Lavington Sports ground will see the relocation of this years Ovens and Murray Grand Final.
Whilst there are still concerns regarding the netball areas, when speaking with the Wangaratta Chronicle, O and M chairman David Sinclair says that he does not think they are insurmountable.
