Casterton and Sandford agree to terms on merger From back page “I’m a life member of Casterton, but in my stance against the merger, I think it is in the best interests of the new club, if I relinquish my position,” he said. “Depending on how the new club is structured, I may or may not stay involved.” The new Casterton-Sandford Football Netball Club will play home games at Casterton’s Island Park, leaving the Sandford Recreation Ground free for junior football on Sundays. The new club will play in a blue and white hooped jumper and will carry the nickname of the Cats, exactly the same as Casterton has used for umpteen years. One addition to the jumper design however will be a subtle red and white reference to Sandford. Mr Kent’s Sandford counterpart, Mr Eddie McGrath said of his club meeting: “It was an overwhelming majority and the hope is to form a new entity by the start of next season. “The feeling in the room following the vote 28 - The Border Watch, Wednesday, November 27, 2013 was a positive one and we now await the Casterton’s members’ vote in three weeks time.” Sandford’s departure from the South West Football League will leave that competition with eight clubs next year. Sandford fi nished sixth in the South West League this season with a 6-10 win-loss record. Casterton played in its fi rst Western Border fi nals since 2007 this season but was bundled out the fi rst week, losing to eventual grand fi nalist, West Gambier. Since then, Casterton has reappointed Dylan Ayton as senior coach and also claimed dual West Gambier premiership coach, Keith “Hooker” Ransom as his assistant. Mr Kent said former player, Matt Kurzman – a school teacher – had been appointed coach of the club’s reserves team and Peter Jarrad reappointed Under 17 coach while no appointment had yet been made for the Under 15s. Another important issue for Casterton at last Sunday’s meeting was the adoption of a new unifi ed model of operations to replace the current club constitution.
