Hanrahan replaces outgoing president Darren Skelton.
Hanrahan said the league’s emphasis this season would once again be to provide players of all abilities the opportunity to play and enjoy football.
‘‘Junior football is all about the players, and as a league we will do everything possible to ensure that everyone gets a fair go and enjoys playing football,’’ he said.
The new president also said the league was looking forward to another successful season of junior football in the Benalla and district area.
‘‘Last season, more than 550 players were registered to play junior football with the league and there is every indication that this strong level of participation will continue in the coming season,’’ he said.
This season the league will continue to offer Auskick, B-division (under-12), A-reserve (under-14) and A-division (under-17) competitions.
The schedule of registration nights for this season has been announced and Hanrahan said sessions will be organised next month to ensure players are registered and allocated to a team before the season starts on Saturday, April 20.
Registration sessions will be at the Benalla Gardens Oval Pavilion on Wednesdays, March 6 and 13, and Saturdays, March 9 and 16. Full times and details are advertised in today’s Ensign.
Preparations including the appointment of coaches, finalisation of the draw and allocation of teams will continue during the next month.
