Re: Coaching Movements

Coming from sources inside Salisbury Inter camp that Tracey Jenkins has been confirmed as Head coach of West Adelaide. Salisbury Inter are absolutely livid with Tracey and West Adelaide for chasing her and negotiating behind the scenes especially prior to finals. Apparently Tracey promised SI to bui...

Re: Coaching Movements

Well done to Metro on a well deserved win considering Salisbury Inter were favourites. There are two people that should be ashamed of themselves for which this whole scenario has panned out.

Re: Head of Women's Football

No. W-league won’t be the same standard as in previous years. But united’s core will be the same. And we will be more competitive. Which is exciting. It’s not about “being fooled”. It’s about an opportunity for these girls to show the other states that they’re competitive when the financials are al...

Re: Head of Women's Football

Well, looking at the re-signing of players, it seems nothing has changed. It's true, as much as I thought Adrian Stenta would be his own coach in his own right, he is just a puppet on a string. Same player signings from last season. The only players that stood out this season in the WNPL was Holmes ...

Dawber never comes into a pack but lingers on the outer. I cannot fathom why she is also not marked closely. You mark Cote and Dawber closely and don'...
