As the sun begins to set on the 2017 football season Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club is already celebrating a terrific season of women’s football after boosting participation and delivering great results.
For the first time in the club’s history MBVFC has an equivalent number of senior women’s and men’s teams, as well as the U/14 and U/16 female teams.
This follows a strategic push by the club last season and our inaugural Female Football Gala Day during national Female Football Week earlier this year.
It is a phenomenal achievement for the biggest little club in the northern rivers!
The second division women are currently topping the table and the U/16 girls are in second place with a clash against the top team this weekend.
The fourth and fifth division women are both battling for a place in the top-four and a chance to play in the finals.
The fifth division women have been the club’s wildcard this season – the team that didn’t win a game last season are contenders for a finals position this year!
The mighty Matildas have of course provided some pretty powerful inspiration in their outstanding performance to win the Tournament of Nations.
So much so that a bus full of MBVFC female players will head out of Pine Avenue early on September 19 on a pilgrimage to Newcastle to watch them take on Brazil. It is sure to be a great game and what fantastic role models for our female youth players to aspire towards.
The club will continue to offer off-season training at Pine Avenue for junior female players (12 to 16 years) and senior women (16 to 99 years!) on Monday evenings 6.30–8pm – experienced players, returning players and total newbies are all equally welcome and encouraged to come along.
