Echunga Football Club wins court battle to stay in top division
The Echunga Football Club has won its fight to stay in the top-tier Hills Football League (HFL) competition after a Supreme Court judge ruled in its favor yesterday (Monday).
The HFL Central Division A-grade premiers were threatened with demotion to the Country Division under the league’s points system because of the poor performance of its B-grade and senior and junior colts this season.
In court Echunga’s barrister, Jonathan Wells QC, argued that the points the A-grade accrued during the finals should be counted, according to the club’s interpretation of the HFL rules.
The HFL maintained that the rules pertained to points from the minor rounds only and all clubs were aware of that distinction.
