AFL 5 has been reduced to 14 teams and Vincents have pulled out of AFL 4.
Even allowing for the reasons highlighted earlier in the thread, it is hard to justify Vincents going from AFL 1,3,4,& 6 in 2016 to 1, 3, 6 and 10 in 2017 when the AFL 10 team is being targeted as a social team. Surely you are getting players from AFL 4 team dropping back to AFL 6 and consequently players who were challenging for promotion in AFL 6 dropping all the way back to AFL 10.
Also the Vincents Junior C championship winning team has effectively been disbanded and Vincents have been Graded in Senior , Intermediate, Junior A and Junior D for the coming year.
