MRSC Family Day Postponed

Monbulk Rangers president, Theo Kerstens, has announced the Club’s Family Day 50th Anniversary celebrations planned for Sunday, 22nd March will be postponed to a date later in the year.

Mr Kerstens and the Club committee made the decision in response to a recommendation by Australia’s Chief Medical Officer that all non-essential gatherings of 500+ people be cancelled, in response to the spread of COVID-19.

Chief medical officer Brendan Murphy said health officials had endorsed the recommendation to cancel only non-essential gatherings, to ensure hospitals and medical services are not overwhelmed by a major outbreak of the virus.

Soccer training and scheduled games are proceeding as normal, but the situation surrounding COVID-19 is rapidly changing and players will be informed as soon as there is any change to this policy.
