Shepparton has pulled out of the Goulburn Valley League junior season.
Bears president Will Phillips spoke to his members via video on Facebook on Saturday to inform them of the decision following the cancellation of round two of the competition on Friday.
“Unfortunately we weren’t necessarily prepared for a COVID case being so close to the league ranks,” Phillips said.
“The board met this morning and we’ve made a decision that we’ll be withdrawing from the GVL competition.”
The GVL board is scheduled to meet Sunday night.
More to come.
