Canning Times - - NEWS -

A WIL­SON-based soc­cer club is ex­pand­ing to in­clude its first ju­nior girls team.

With just one team in its in­au­gu­ral sea­son last year, the Cen­te­nary Foot­ball Club tasted some early suc­cess when they were crowned Metro South Di­vi­sion 3 cham­pi­ons af­ter fin­ish­ing the sea­son un­de­feated.

Hav­ing ex­panded this sea­son to in­clude a team in each of the Metro South Premier and Metro South Di­vi­sion 1 com­pe­ti­tions, the club is open­ing its doors to the next gen­er­a­tion of stars as it looks to cre­ate its first ju­nior girls team.

Head coach Zane Abra­hams said they were tak­ing in as many as 18 play­ers and were look­ing specif­i­cally for those born be­tween 2002 and 2006.

“We want ex­pan­sion due to the huge in­ter­est in play­ing a safe sport and the growth shown from re­cent suc­cesses na­tion­ally,” he said. “We are a pro­gres­sive club with ex­cel­lent fe­ma­le­only fa­cil­i­ties and sup­port a fam­ily en­vi­ron­ment within the play­ing group,” he said.

“Our se­nior coach has many years experience coach­ing ju­nior girls and the com­pe­ti­tion will be in the Foot­ball West com­pe­ti­tion in the rel­e­vant age group.”

The club will be hold­ing a try-out ses­sion at Cen­te­nary Park, Wil­son from 5.30pm, July 18.

To reg­is­ter in­ter­est or for more in­for­ma­tion, call Zane on 0407 387 269.
