Adelaide City Appointed New Head Coach for 2020

I believe Adelaide City will soon be announcing Geoff Hargreaves as the new head coach of the women's senior team for 2020.
Geoff was a former FFSA Women's NTC coach and currently the assistant coach for the Adelaide City Men's senior team.

Re: AUWFC Captain Quits Lady Reds

Ben, You didn't really expect Emma to come out and knock the club for being unprofessional. Emma is a professional athlete and is to smart to fall in that trap which may affect her credibility. She is not at all obligated to say or do a thing and she's even followed up with more kind words from her...

AUWFC Captain Quits Lady Reds

I am bitterly disappointed that Emma Checker has quit the lady reds and leaving for another W League Club. How can this happen. Emma is a great leader, great player and a wonderful person. This is going to leave a big gap to fill. What is going on at Adelaide United, this is now the 4th Captain in 5...

Re: FFSA Bringing the game into disrepute

Whether we accept this particular rule or not, the rule was incorporated for a reason. Some of you have indicated that it was ok that an exemption was granted. Where do you draw the line. What if another issue arises, is it ok for the FFSA to offer an exemption again. Where does it stop. Unfortunate...

Re: FFSA Bringing the game into disrepute

My comments were in no way of targeting the individual. This was to highlight how the FFSA can change the rules without being held to account. Just ask the other two clubs who were denied an exemption to a similiar issue.

Re: AUWFC season 2019-2020

Sportsbird Sarah Willacy is injured, thought you said no one injured should get a contract? she is the exception?

Rightside, if she is injured then you are quite right to say that she should not obtain a contract. Because it is such a short season, the club cannot afford to carry injured players.

That is a ridiculous comment coming from you.

I know him and find him a fantastic person but I feel he hasn't the qualities to coach women football.
