Last year’s premiers Panthers won’t be getting a chance to defend their title after the scrapping of the 2020 South Burnett Women’s competition on Monday

COVID-19 restrictions have dashed hopes a junior soccer competition could go ahead in a restricted form in the South Burnett this year.

Football South Burnett made the difficult decision on Monday night to scrap plans to hold the Under 12/13 and Cadet competitions.

The Senior Women’s competition was also cancelled.

“The two main reasons were low player numbers and also trying to work with the COVID-19 restrictions,” a Football South Burnett spokesperson said.

“The Senior Men are going to try to formulate a plan to play a small-sided competition in Kingaroy.

“Thank you to all clubs and their volunteers who have been scratching to try to give our players a competition.”

Under 6s to Under 11s games were cancelled earlier in June.

    Football Wide Bay is playing all games in all age groups. If we can police COVID restrictions in such a big area and with more clubs and players, it should be a hell of a lot easier in the South Burnett. I believe not enough has been done to try and get the competition launched and I believe it will harm the sport in the South Burnett in years to come.
