MASTERS women’s football is on the up in Perth.
The WA team returned from the national championships in Coffs Harbour as division 2 undefeated champions amid plans to start a local Masters competition next season.
Kavita Pepper, Karen Cowley and Louise Knitter were named in the all-Australian team.
WA Women’s Masters committee vice-president Pauline Gibb said the success was the culmination of the hard work at training and fundraising.
“It signifies to the rest of the country that Western Australia is a force to be reckoned with,” she said.
“With players between 30 and 62 years of age, it goes to show you are never too old to give it a go.”
The committee is now recruiting players for next year’s national championships in Townsville, and for a local and regional women’s Masters competition.
