AFL Western District has taken control of the South West District Football Netball League in a bid to resolve governance issues.

A special general meeting determined AFL Western District should take “temporary governance” of the competition following a vote from its board and clubs.

In a statement, AFL Western District said a long-term solution would be nutted out at the league’s annual general meeting in January.

“Following the resignation of a number of board members, the majority of clubs endorsed exploring new governance structures for SWDFNL in season 2018,” the statement said.

“Clubs will have the opportunity to vote on the long-term future governance structure of the SWDFNL at the upcomingannual general meeting in January 2018. 

“In the interim, AFL Western District has nominated the four current board members to form a league advisory committee to continue to ensure the smooth running of all league affairs.”
