The North-East outpost will host the NTFA division 2 fixture between East Coast Swans and Old Scotch on May 19.

Organisers said the annual game has became very popular among locals and competing clubs. The NTFA has given permission for East Coast Swans to wear their original black and white guernseys which will be auctioned off as part of the evening's entertainment which also includes live music.  

Children from Scottsdale to St Marys will play Auskick from 10.30am followed by reserves then seniors.

Spokesman Michael Le Fevre said: “As football teams and competitions all around Tasmania are slowly going by the wayside, the volunteers at Pyengana are trying to reverse this trend. Pyengana and the East Coast Swans invite anyone who enjoys a good day of country footy and catching up with good friends to come along and enjoy the day.”
