South’s women’s football team hit the track for their first pre-season training yesterday, and they’re keen to welcome some new faces into the club.
The Roos currently boast a healthy roster of players, but they’re still very keen to see a few more girls to pull on the red and white.
“We’ve got 34 names on our team sheet, but it’s always same at the start of every year,” said Kacee Milnes.
“You start off with a lot of names but people end up having to work or lose interest.”
Kacee said there was plenty of enthusiasm around the club for the women’s team, with players learning and growing with each passing season.
“Everyone seems really keen and we’ve got a new coach, Michael Bird, and he has a lot of people helping him out.
“Last year we lost in the Semi Final to Central, but we’ve improved heaps every year, and we’re hoping to have another crack this year.”
Even if you’re not crazy about football, Kacee said the South girls are great company for anyone looking for a friendly social group or some fun and fitness.
“We have a lot of girls who come out and train for fitness, so if anyone wants to just come for a run around they can come along too.
“We also do a lot of stuff outside the footy, players teas, events at the club, fundraising and a lot of other things.”
Anyone wishing to join the Roos’ women’s team can come along to training at the Alma Oval from 6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.
