THE Border-Walwa Football Netball Club’s plight could be determined within days.
Magpie officials have called a committee meeting for Wednesday night with president Richard Hulme saying senior player numbers remained “pretty dire”.
The club has already conceded it won’t field a reserve grade side this year.
Border-Walwa appointed Ben McCarthy and Ash Greenhill as senior co-coaches late last week with the pair desperately trying to recruit.
“We’re still not sure what the future will be," Hulme said.
“It’s a bit of a concern.
“We will know more on Wednesday night after speaking to Ben and Ash.
We’re still not sure what the future will be. We will know more on Wednesday night ...Richard Hulme
“We need to rustle up 20-odd players.”
If Border-Walwa is unable to field a senior football side, it may explore the option of only fielding a junior football side and netball teams this year.
It has contacted the AFL NEB about their plight and would need Upper Murray league approval for the radical move to go ahead.
The Magpies remain strong in the netball.
“We are looking at everything at the moment,” he said.
“The community has just lost the show at Jingellic and we don’t want things to die.
“Hopefully we have some good news later this week.”
Walwa Football Club amalgamated with the Jingellic-based Border Football Club in 1960 to become The Border-Walwa Football Club.
The Magpies won their last premiership in 1998, defeating Tumbarumba by six points in the grand final.
