WFC on the hunt to get women in­volved

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SOC­CER: The Whit­sun­day ladies team didn’t en­joy the best start to the sea­son on Satur­day.

Com­ing up against Coun­try United in Mackay, WFC couldn’t stop the goals as they went down 7-0.

De­spite putting in a bet­ter sec­ond half per­for­mance, five first half goals put WFC out of the game early.

Cap­tain Michelle Wild said while they were strug­gling for num­bers, need­ing fill ins on the day, they had a core group of play­ers who would grow through­out the sea­son.

“We did a lot bet­ter in the sec­ond half,” she said.

“The girls we have are strong play­ers. We just need a cou­ple more play­ers to com­plete the team.”

Wild said she’d love to see more play­ers.

“Ba­si­cally we just want to build women's soc­cer in the Whit­sun­days. There are ca­pa­ble play­ers out there, we just need to get them to play,” she said.

“We just need to re­build the club af­ter the cy­clone.”

In­ter­ested play­ers can at­tend train­ing at 7pm on Tues­days and Thurs­days.
