The last thing Charlton players and supporters would want to look at over summer is a scoreboard. Any scoreboard.

The last time they looked at a scoreboard, at the Wycheproof ground on Grand Final Day 2014, they saw that they had lost to Wedderburn by a point. A single, solitary point.

And that was after scores were dead level at the end of the fourth quarter: Wedderburn 11.14 (80) Charlton 12.8 (80)

Then there was extra time. After the first five minutes the scores were still level: 11.16 (82)  12.10 (82)

Then  another five minutes of extra time. A rushed behind to Wedderburn with only seconds left. Siren. Wedderburn’s fourth flag in a row.

No, the last thing Charlton players and supporters would want to look at over summer is a scoreboard. Any scoreboard.

Charlton and Wedderburn play in the North Central Football & Netball League, alongside Birchip/Watchem, Boort, Donald, St Arnaud, and Wycheproof/Narraport.

Charlton Park is home to more than footy. You can also play netball, golf, hockey, cricket, and tennis (16 grass courts!).  And attend the harness racing.
