Women's footballers heading to Australasian State Games
After a three-year hiatus due to COVID, the Australasian State Games returns later this year from 29 September – 1 October 2022 in Melbourne.
We're delighted to confirm that our women's football team will be heading across the ditch to line out in the intermediate competition. This will be the first time since 2015 that our women's footballers will participate at the trans-Tasman games.
Their last outing in 2015 – which we held at Te Whiti Park, Lower Hutt – saw them record a memorable win over NZ rivals Canterbury. In addition, our own Eileen Foyle picked up an All-Star award at the games and went on to represent Australasia at the 2016 world games in Dublin.
The competition will be nine a side with teams allowed a panel of up to 15 players. If you're interested in playing in the most prestigious Gaelic games tournament in the Southern Hemisphere, there's still time to secure your place on the panel. Contact club secretary Tiaré at email@example.com
for more details.
The committee is also looking for a coach dedicated to training the team in the lead-up to the tournament. If you're interested, please contact Davey Rynne at firstname.lastname@example.org
