Adelaide City will field a Women’s Divisional Team in the 2019 Season.
The move comes on the back of a demand for greater playing opportunities among the senior women playing ranks.
Head Women’s Coach Andrew Calderbank expanded on the concept. “We’ve just finished trials for the women and girls 2019 teams at Adelaide City. The demand has been higher than we expected, but then again women’s football in Australia is on the move. Our club would like to provide the opportunity for more women to play, and the Divisional Team provides this” he said.
The team will comprise of players from the age of 17 and up who are looking for the chance to continue their development and enjoy the sport. Club General Manager Marcus Lacey added details to the initiative; “Adelaide City has a a strong focus on women and girls player development and is the home of the 2017 and 2018 WNPL back to back Champions, but it also wants to provide the joy of football wherever possible. Opening up a divisional team at Adelaide City will only add to women’s football in South Australia. For players who may not be ale to commit to WNPL training and playing demands, this provides the ideal opportunity.” he said.
All players are invited to a come and try day, at Adelaide City Park, cnr Fosters Rd and Hilltop Dve, Oakden, on Saturday 24th November 2018 at 12 noon.
