Date set for Football Stanthorpe finals

FOOTBALL Stanthorpe says the competition's grand finals will go ahead this Saturday.

Committee members were advised late Friday night to cancel Saturday's games, as safety at CF White Oval could not be guaranteed.

"It is going to happen this Saturday,” Football Stanthorpe president Vic Pennisi said.

"It is just one of those things. We got the call from incident control on Friday night and said, given the location of the games, they didn't want a big congregation of people there.

"The option was to have it through the week, this weekend or postpone until after school holidays.

Fillies will kick off at 9.30am, junior colts 10.50am, senior colts at 12.30pm, ladies 2pm, and men at 3.40pm.
