YJFL Press Release - Season 2020

The YJFL have released a press statement regarding their plans for the 2020 season.

Essentially the YJFL have proposed a start date of mid-July consisting of 12 rounds followed by 2 weeks of finals in October.

Importantly all of these plans require State Government approval however we now have a date to work towards which is excellent news.

The committee continues to work with coaches and Councils to finalise our plans to commence training. We all want training to commence sooner rather than later but the rules are still incredibly restrictive in this regard, consequently we are hopeful that restrictions continue to ease so we can get training underway.

We will continue to keep in touch and provide any additional information or details as they come to hand.

Stay Safe & GO COBRAS

CJFC congratulates former Cobra Matt Rowell on being selected by the Gold Coast Suns as Pick #1

This is a magnificent achievement by Matt who played over 100 games for the Club, and was awarded the 2015 CJFC Club Champion trophy. 

Matt started his football journey at Mont Albert Auskick and progressed through the pathway program of the Cobras from U8 to U14, and then onto the Boroondara Hawks for U15. 

Matt has been generous in giving back to the Club this year in assisting with training our U9 teams - a fine young man and a great example to our junior footballers.

Matt's parents Louise and David have also been great contributors to our club over many years, culminating with both being awarded Life Memberships in 2015. 

The Rowell's are a true Cobras family, and we wish Matt every success in his football career. 


Our Cobras 2019 Grand Finalists

U12 Premiers

Congratulations to our 3 Grand Final teams who played off on Sunday, September 1.

Our U12 Girls bought home their second Premiership in a row in a stunning 51 to 13 win over Park Orchards. Great effort girls!!!

The U13 Boys (Blue) went down in a tough encounter against Banyule, with the result in the balance until the final quarter.

And the U15 girls went agonisingly close with a 6 point loss to the previously undefeated Bulleen Templestowe. After falling 3 goals behind early in the last quarter, the girls had all the play against the wind but couldn't quite reel them in. An amazing effort.
