THREE Swan Districts Women’s Football Club teams will be vying for a clean sweep of premiership cups in the WA Women’s Football League grand finals on August 20.

Swan Districts’ league team are the reigning premiers and are hoping to go back-to-back in their fifth-straight league grand final against rivals Coastal Titans.

The reserves team will try to win their first premiership since 2013 against East Fremantle while the youth girls’ team will play South Fremantle in the Rogers Cup grand final.

All grand finals will be played at Leederville Oval, starting with the Rogers Cup at 10am, followed by the reserves at 12pm and finishing with the league at 2.30pm.

Meanwhile on the same weekend, the women’s WAFL counterparts are hoping to see 3000 fans flock through the gates of Bassendean Oval for the club’s first father-daughter round on August 19.

Fourth-placed Swan Districts will play Claremont Football Club, who are in seventh spot on the West Australian Football League (WAFL) ladder.

Fathers can bring their daughters along to the match, where free pink footballs will be handed to the first 100 daughters and free drinks and lunch will be provided for daughters during the president’s luncheon.

Swan Districts volunteer Tony Miles said he would be bringing his oldest daughter and grandchildren to the game.

“For three years, I have been doing the memorabilia and catalogues…other times, I have just been helping out with raffles on game day,” he said.

“We are the first one doing it…I hope a lot of fathers bring their daughters.

“It is not only for young daughters; my oldest daughter is going and she is 43 years old.”
