THE club that formed 40 years ago with 13 or 14 young men keen to forge a future has grown to in­clude a ju­nior nurs­ery and very strong women’s teams.

Last week, in blaz­ing heat, the ladies scored a 2-1 win over Dubbo FC to claim the Sum­mer Seven-aside trophy.

78s came from a goal down to equalise just be­fore half-time when Brooke Bar­ber re­sponded to Naomi Bowen’s early strike for the Bulls. Kahlee O’leary slot­ted the match-win­ner in a tightly con­tested fi­nal played in great spirit.

RSL 78s’ pres­i­dent St­ef­fen Frand­sen was im­pressed with Jorja Fuller and Thalia Ste­wart, two of the ju­niors who stepped up along­side the win­ter comp play­ers.

“Kahlee’s re­turn was also wel­come; get­ting the win­ning goal made it all the more mem­o­rable,” St­ef­fen said.

This sea­son’s win­ter com­pe­ti­tion kicks off next month. RSL 78’s Sum­mer Sevens Cham­pi­ons: back, Milla Ross, Jorja Fuller, Matilda Low, Mandy Cam­pion and Thalia Ste­wart, front, Matilda Mon­tague, Brooke Bar­ber, Claire Sienkiewic­z, Hay­ley Cairns, Kahlee O’leary, Dachshunds – In­die and Ivy!
