After finishing the regular season with grandfinal wins the Mullumbimby-Brunswick Valley Football Club’s top female players contested the Summer Youth League and enjoyed more success

Head coach Jonathan Flantz and assistant coach Lee Scriven combined some of the most talented female footballers from the club’s second division and U/16  squads to contest the SYL.

The combined team was a force to be reckoned with, securing seven convincing wins out of nine exciting games and finishing second place on the ladder.

The girls conceded defeat only once to unstoppable table toppers, Lismore Thistles, coming away 3–0 down after a hard-fought and thrilling game, arguably showcasing some of the best female footballers and skills in the region.

The MBVFC girls are looking forward to a rematch with the Lismore Thistles’ side when they enter the Football Far North Coast Women’s Premier Division  for the first time in 2018!

Jonathan Flantz will be running training sessions with the MBVFC Chincogan Real Estate Women’s Premier Division team at Pine Avenue, Mullumbimby every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm till 7.30pm, commencing on 23 January.

Any players interested in trying out are welcome to come along and join the fun.
