Our Girls Kick Off at Henley….

History was made on Friday the 28th April when the first Henley female football junior teams took to the field for premiership points!!

Our Footy club has seen enormous interest in girl’s football with 80 girls joining our club. This has allowed the club to field 4 girls teams in 2017 in the Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 age groups. Starting 4 new teams from scratch has been an interesting challenge and consideration on how to manage the girls teams within what has been a traditionally male dominated environment.

Thanks to  Nigel Fiegert, Brad Smyth and Rob McKenzie for running an excellent preseason training program and getting the girls ready for the year ahead.

Our Coaches for the 2017 Season are:

U16:Coach – Karl Dobner

Assistant Coach – Brad Smyth

Team Manager(s) – Hugh and Sandra Forgan

U14:Coach – Troy Topp

Assistant Coach – Brad Smyth

Team Manager(s) – Liz Byrne and Jodie Emmett

U12: Coach – Andrew Kemp

Team Manager – Renee Fiegert

 U10:Coach – Tim Riley

Assistant Coach – Nick Godlevski

Team Manager – Melissa Clogg

A huge thank you to these people for taking on these important roles and providing the girls with the opportunity to play this great game.

Our on-field leaders are:

U16 Captains – Kiana Lee & Taylah Dobner

U16 Vice Captains – Charli Smyth & Hannah Atherton

U14 Captains – Tasmyn Fiegert & Tamsin Evans

If you get the opportunity to get out and see the girls play, do yourself a favour and do so – you will not be disappointed with the effort, passion and energy with which they play the game.

We welcome this new group of sharks to the club and look forward to an exciting and enjoyable season 2017.
