Board vacancy won’t be filled in hurry

Grant Wilson will continue as AFL Goulburn Murray's league operations manager for another year.

Grant Wilson will stay as AFL Goulburn Murray’s league operations manager for another year.

Wilson, who heads the administrative side of the Goulburn Valley Football League for AFL Goulburn Murray, was announced on Wednesday night to be continuing in the job until at least the end of next season.

The former Mooroopna general manager stepped into the role after the departure of Simon Devine to the Northern Football League in July after 18 months in the job.

He has worked at AFL Goulburn Murray since 2013.

‘‘A strength of our new structure was an ability for Grant Wilson to step up to that role in what has been a seamless transition,’’ GVFL chairman David Roff said.

While there is a certainty on the administrative end, don’t expect the vacant seat on the board to be filled any time soon.

There was already a spare place after the resignation of David Fox in August.

His spot was taken by former Shepparton Swans secretary Rhonda Kortum, who was the only nominee for the board before the annual meeting.

League chairman David Roff was up for re-election, along with Philip Friedlieb and Braydon Aitken, after their two-year terms came to an end.

However, Aitken decided not to nominate again, leaving one position available.

‘‘As she steps out of club duties, Rhonda brings with her an extensive knowledge of club operations and will

be a great asset to the team,’’ Roff said.

‘‘Braydon has had a productive two years and did a significant amount of work with the Dunkirk Ave office in getting the property to market for lease and then spearheading the sale of the property at the direction of the clubs.

‘‘We wish him well as he takes on further study and spends more time with his young family.’’

Roff declared before the meeting that the league had more pressing issues to discuss than the vacancy.
