Junior football might not be played this year because the organisation can't find a secretary.

With the season set to start on April 9, the Junior Football Association was confident of having another successful year - if they could find someone to take on the rewarding role.

Junior Football Association chairman, Scott Dunn, said the secretary's job involved discussions with AFL NSW and organising events including footy trips.

It was also crucial, he said,

"The footy season won't start if we don't get a secretary," Mr Dunn said.

He said he was also was looking for people to join the committee and invited them to attend a meeting next Monday, March 28, at 7pm at the Jubilee Oval "to see how we operate".

So far 120 youngsters had registered for the season but there were always more who signed up closer to the deadline, he said. Last year junior football had 560 players register.
