Re: ADL v SYD

I thought the girls did really well- there’s a grit and determination in the squad this year that has been missing in previous years. They fight for each other and don’t give up. Sarah Willacy’s performances have been inspirational. And of course the internationals are all class. That said, Sydney d...

Re: Information Required

FFSA wouldn’t have that info as the women and girls’ competitions were under SAWSA at that time. It was before FFSA had taken over the administration of the women’s game. Maybe a former player or coach from that era on here would have the info. If you really wanted it, I’d imagine Wendy Carter would...

Re: Adelaide vs Canberra

I was impressed by Canberra as well when I watched them in the first round. But watching them play on Saturday was a different story. They were a bit disorganised and all over the place- also missing a few key players. And I'm not sure they will have their South African international up front on Thu...

Re: Matildas v Chile

I agree Lucas- the youth international representation number actually doubles if you go back 4 years- not to mention other players who were called into camp but not selected.... and the pyramid gets pointier as you go up, meaning fewer and fewer players are able to represent at the next level as the...

Re: Scheduling W League Matches - Debacle

I agree about the bye week- it should be a 10-team competition. But I also think that the break between the first and second games will work more to United's advantage than disadvantage.

Don’t think so-easy to verify, but I think one player played 9 regular season games- everyone else played more. Don’t think any of them only played 4 games.

Re: Cumberland's Fall and who gains - Fulham and Comets

The failure of State League is not FFSA’s fault. They had to pull the plug because teams who were in it this year requested to be moved back down to Div I and no teams from Div I wanted to move up. The clubs found it too difficult to meet criteria, specifically to field two senior sides. Some clubs ...

Re: Cumberland's Fall and who gains - Fulham and Comets

It seems to me that Div I is just State League renamed- there are obviously differences- no reserves sides or requirement to have juniors. And the addition of Uni, Stirling Districts and Metro, but uni and Metro can’t be promoted as their clubs already have Prems sides. I’d say life is now considera...

The player points system for the WNPL can be found here, in Appendix 1: http://websites.sportstg.com/get_file.cgi?id=35746949 It is the same in principal as the men’s, but is different in how points are assessed because the women’s comp has traditionally had trouble keeping older players, where the ...

Re: Hindmarsh Facilities

There are only two changerooms, which makes it logistically impossible to have the wleague play as a curtain raiser to the Aleague. They’d need to use portables parked out in one of the parking lots for the women. Unacceptable- makes showering kind of difficult, in addition to being very far removed...

Re: Cumberland's Fall and who gains - Fulham and Comets

Awesome- best of luck with developing your girls and women’s programs. Reading the original post it seemed to suggest the club was looking to start an WNPL side. I apologise if I misinterpreted. It’s great that Cobras are looking to provide opportunities to more juniors and senior women.

I believe that we have reached the end of the first 3 year WNPL licensing agreement, which means the licenses are up for renewal. And terms can now be changed. And all clubs have to re-apply.

Re: Cumberland's Fall and who gains - Fulham and Comets

Cumberland has a good argument IMO, if the issue is what’s best for women’s football in SA. Winning all 3 junior cup finals certainly didn’t hurt their case. And an expanded Prems competition wouldn’t be a bad thing.

Is the original question about the quality of the media coverage for the WNPL this season? If so, I think it’s great that there’s much more coverage to discuss than in past years.

Re: Cumberland's Fall and who gains - Fulham and Comets

Agreed Rightside- there may be one or two young, aspirational players that will move, but they’ll have to work their way into a starting spot wherever they go. Where relegation will really hurt Cumberland is getting back players that have aged out of NTC. There are several former Cumby players who w...

If they can keep focused for the full 90, they might even win. If Jenna and Jess play for Fulham, I'...
