Interleague action is back tomorrow, as we begin the MPJFL vs YJFL Representative Series down at RJ Rowley Reserve (Rye JFC).
In 2021 we were lucky enough to initiate a relationship with the Yarra Junior Football League, to provide further development opportunities to our coaches and our players within the interleague program. The YJFL is a benchmark organization within community sport, and we are extremely excited to continue this relationship into 2022 and hopefully beyond!
Tomorrow will mark the first of three days that we will play matches against the YJFL, with our Division 1 Under 16 Girls & Boys making the trip to Ford Park Ivanhoe next Wednesday night (July 6th) to play in two blockbuster night matches, at the new home of Yarra Football!
The third and final day of the series will again be at Ford Park, with our Under 14 Boys and Girls (Division 1 & 2) testing themselves against the best on Thursday July 7th.
Tomorrows representative series will also kickstart our Division 2 Interleague campaign, which will continue over the following days.
This year we are excited to again be competing against our neighboring leagues in Division 2 matches, with our teams taking on both the South East Juniors and the Frankston & District Junior Football League.

In even more exciting news, our Under 14 Division 1 and Under 16 teams will be taking on the Piccola & District Football Netball League, this upcoming Sunday (3rd July). We are very pleased to have rekindled this development relationship, to continue to provide great opportunities to our players. A strong country league, the PDNFL will no doubt come to play, making this matchup one not to miss! These matches will be played at Waterview Reserve, Mernda, kicking off at 12.00pm.
If you are around in the July School Holidays, pop in and show your support, as our Interleague players look to represent the clubs and league with distinction and pride!
We would like to thank the coaches and team staff for their tireless work within the interleague program. Interleague is an extremely important component of any players individual pathway, and we are grateful to have a multitude of high quality people guiding the next generation of MPJFL talent through year after year.
