A 50-year-old plan to have an Alice Springs side in Darwins NTFL competition has reached stage two. An Alice side will play four trial games against Premier League clubs in October this year. A home game at Traeger Park will be followed by three Darwin games. Division 1 premier Banks will also join the trial to help eliminate byes. AFLNT boss Tony Frawley expects a full-time Alice side in the Premier League by the start of 2013-14. We might have 10 sides next season depending on how Banks cope with the level of competition, he said. I think Banks are keen they want to have a bit of a go and see what the level is like. Frawley said several bridges had to be crossed before Alice Springs joined full-time. Weve said to Alice all along we dont want them interfering with local league and Thunder sponsorship, he said. So theyve got a big job raising the money. Its a pretty significant budget for Alice to be able to play consistently in the Darwin competition. Its why we didnt want to play nine trial games, it was too expensive and a waste of money. The AFLNT will pay for a Darwin club to travel to the Alice for the first trial game. Hopefully it will be a St Marys, Tiwi Bombers, Nightcliff or Wanderers, Frawley said. Then theyll play three games in Darwin to complete the trial, with one at Cazalys and the other two at TIO Stadium. I think there will be a lot of interest from the people of the Alice. Well open the gates and let them in for free to watch the matches. ContinuedPage54
