Women’s team for El­len­brook

Ellenbrook Advocate - - SPORT -

EL­LEN­BROOK Se­nior Foot­ball Club has launched a women’s team.

Pres­i­dent An­drew Cox­all said its in­au­gu­ral WA Am­a­teur Foot­ball League sea­son would be next year, with the first games in April.

“It’s a very ex­cit­ing time as El­len­brook SFC con­tin­ues on a strong growth pro­gram that of­fers all skill lev­els op­por­tu­ni­ties,” he said.

“Now sub­mit­ting a women’s team shows how quickly El­len­brook is grow­ing.”

El­len­brook en­tered a team in the am­a­teur league car­ni­val in July, win­ning two out of three games at Su­bi­aco Oval. The side’s play­ers were aged from 17 to 60, “prov­ing age is not a bar­rier”.

“Play­ing on the big stage in front of our chil­dren was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and we are look­ing for­ward to a great year ahead,” coach Dezzy Giles said.

El­len­brook Ju­nior Foot­ball Club play­ers now have a path­way into adult foot­ball.

The team is open to play­ers aged from 17, with train­ing start­ing early next year.

Call An­drew on 0417 479 884 for more in­for­ma­tion.

El­len­brook play­ers Rachael Ken­nan, Fiona Smith, Dezzy Giles and Tahlia Me­naglio.
