The Spencer Gulf Football League returns this weekend after a two-week break due to the recent COVID lockdown and restrictions.

Although, not everything is back to normal as there are new restrictions in place for spectators, which are:

  • Patrons permitted but limited to 1000 people and all patrons (12 years and over) will be required to wear a mask, with a density restriction of 1 person per 2sqm
  • Those in attendance are subject to all other COVID requirements such as seated consumption (indoors and outdoors), QR code check-in etc
  • Density of 1 person per 2sqm (changerooms, match day areas such as coaches boxes, licenced venue etc)

The round will kick off with South Augusta taking on West Augusta at Central Oval.

Souths are sitting third on the ladder, equal with the Lions and will want to clinch this win at shot for second spot but Westies need to win this crucial match as they have Centrals chasing their tail on the ladder.

Souths beat West by 22 points last time they met in round nine.

Port will be taking on the Lions at Port Oval this weekend and the Lions will want to pencil in a win to gain some momentum going into finals.

Final hopes for Port remain near impossible but they would be hoping to etch a few wins to finish the season on a high note but the last time they played the Lions, they lost by 57 points.

Solomontown are set to play Central Augusta at Memorial Oval this Saturday.

Last time they met, the Bloods gave the Cats a reality check when they beat them by 23 points.

It was the first loss for the Cats this season and they will be seeking revenge this weekend and with the home ground advantage it should be thrilling match.

Centrals will need to play hardball if they want to knock over the flag-favourites and have any chance of making finals.

First bounce for all the A grade matches will be from 2.25pm
