WANNEROO Amateur Football Club is nominating a women’s team for the WA Amateur Football League in 2019.

The WAAFL, in existence for almost 100 years, started up its first women’s competition this year with two grades.

The Wanneroo club has been actively involved with women’s football since 2012, hosting night games between Joondalup and East Fremantle women’s teams, which has grown to incorporate the perpetual Pink Lace Cup.

The club has appointed Courtney Godden as its women’s football co-ordinator and she was ready to hit the ground running.

“I am excited about being involved from the ground up,” she said.

“Having played at the Wanneroo Showground, I know the club’s energetic playing and social atmosphere that comes from being part of such an established community club.

“I have already established a women’s 9s team that is playing on Sundays.

“We almost have enough for one team and I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up with two teams.

“We are seeking anyone who is interested in playing, coaching, supporting or volunteering. Players don’t need to have played before – it will be our role to teach the fundamentals and skills of the game and most importantly how to have fun on and off the field.”

The team’s home base will be the historic Wanneroo Showground with the men’s teams.

“From what I have seen of other women’s teams. the Wanneroo women’s team will be an integral part of the club, not pushed off to the side,” Godden said.
