The girls have been a dominant force over the past two seasons, winning both the premier division grand final and the cup final for their respective divisions for two consecutive seasons.
Frank DiCosta and Nick Celenza will again coach the girls. DiCosta said he was feeling confident despite the increased number of teams in the competition. ‘This season will be a real test for the girls, given the increased number of teams and the external demands the girls will have to balance,’ he said.
‘We have retained eighty per cent of last year’s squad and the new recruits are making great progress.
‘The girls are looking strong, committed and full of talent but it will ultimately come down to their hunger and desire to win’.
Last season the Balcatta girls had five players in the top 10 leading goal scorers and conceded less than 10 goals in two seasons.
Team captain Lara Ameduri said the team couldn’t wait for the season to start.
‘We have been training twice a week since February and its time to once again prove ourselves and show why we finished the last two seasons on top,’ she said. ‘It’s a privilege to captain such an amazing group of girls who are striving to achieve as it’s probably our last season together.’
