Re: Coaching Movements

Wash up from season 2020? Which coaches are where? Comets and City have new coaches. New to the WNPL. Not just established heads moving from one club to another. Better throw Fulham into the mix with their new bloke. Good to see new people at the helm. Won't be long before pre-season games start. W...

After my post from yesterday was removed (must have hit a little too close to home), I will reiterate the information a little clearer. So the Referee Committee Chairman and one of his committeemen have decided to leave, less than 12 months into their jaunt. Call it choice or call it pushed. Its is...

Re: Canberra Utd VS Adelaide Utd

I would like to say it was an entertaining game but sadly a game that AU would rather forget. But looking at the line up prior to the game, I was absolutely flabbergasted and confused. People would say it was because of injuries to two players Laura Johns and Charlotte Grant. That is not an excuse ...

Player Movements 2020/21

Haven't seen too many clubs announce many, if any players for the 2021 season yet.
Interested to see if there's any big name moves to follow coaches.
Likewise, will be interesting to see how many bench/reserves WNPL players from 2020 will drop to a State League club for more First Team action

Re: McGure Axed from England Squad

Considering the length of the suspended sentence, I think he's very very lucky to have had the entire 21 months suspended and not serve any jail time at all.
For what he did, personally think he should be serving jail time.
But yeah, his profile and Man Utd has probably got him off here

And I agree, after PHKs woeful season, is their place in the WNPL next season warranted? I think most people would say no.
