Pilbara News - - Sport - Tay­lar Amonini

Women’s football is on the brink of end­ing in Port Hed­land af­ter a mas­sive no-show oc­curred at the first meet­ing last week.

West Aus­tralian Football Com­mis­sion Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Man­ager Vicki Ag­new had an­nounced a meet­ing last week for the women’s sport, how­ever, de­spite an in­cred­i­ble re­sponse on so­cial me­dia, only one per­son at­tended.

“If we don’t get the num­bers, it won’t hap­pen,” she said.

“While I will be around, the com­mit­tees must be run by lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”

In the past, Port Hed­land has strug­gled to get the num­bers for a lo­cal league, with women mostly hav­ing to travel for car­ni­vals to play games.

This year how­ever, Ms Ag­new hopes women will re­flect their so­cial me­dia ex­cite­ment for a lo­cal league to go ahead.

De­spite the dis­mal at­ten­dance last week, Hed­land sports fans will have a sec­ond chance to cre­ate a com­mit­tee and have the sport con­tinue in the town.

The meet­ing will be held at the Youth In­volve­ment Coun­cil meet­ing room from 6pm.
