Silvan Football Club hosted Coldstream Football Netball Club in the only game of local footy on Anzac Day in the Yarra Valley region.

Silvan held pre-game tributes to honour the Anzacs, and each player from Silvan wore a commemorative Anzac Day guernsey that featured images of soldiers at Gallipoli for the round 3 matchup.

State Member for Evelyn Bridget Vallence delivered the ode of remembrance, before the last post was played followed by a minute of silence and the Australian national anthem.

Federal Member for Casey Tony Smith then tossed the coin in the lead up to the first bounce.

Coldstream (13.8 86) went on to defeat Silvan (8.22 70) in the Division 4 Seniors of the EFL.
