KILMORE Football Netball Club president Paul Maher has confirmed a historic night game between the Kilmore under 19s and Diamond Creek will go ahead at JJ Clancy Reserve at 7.30pm tomorrow.
The club had organised what is believed to be the first night match for premiership points in Kilmore’s history earlier this year, but had to wait for confirmation that the State Government’s COVID-19 restrictions would be eased to allow community sport to return at the weekend.
Maher said a crowd of up to 1000 spectators was allowed at the reserve, with free entry.
“We’ve got the green light that we’ll be playing tomorrow night, so we’re very excited that that’s going ahead,” he said.
Kilmore’s reserves and seniors will also play at home against Reservoir on Saturday after the Northern Football Netball League agreed to move the game from Reservoir.
Kilmore has already hosted Reservoir this season, but with no crowds allowed at community sports in metropolitan Melbourne, Maher said the club offered to host the match so spectators could attend.
“We … offered them the opportunity to play at Kilmore, and we can share the gate and the takings at the canteen and bar,” he said.
