The U/10 Dolphins are one of two new all-girl teams at the Shores United Soccer Club and they had their first game on the weekend.

The Dolphins took on the U/11 Kyogle Cowgirls and both teams played very well and had lots of fun, coach Teja Clare said.

‘We were proud of how our girls worked together, under the pressure of playing with no subs. A demanding but exciting first game,’ she said.

‘Thank you to the lovely Kyogle Cowgirl who donned a bib and subbed for us to give a couple of our girls a quick rest. Great sporting generosity from her’, she said.

The club is very happy to be supporting girls in the sport to have an option to play in an all-girl team. 

‘We look forward to offering additional all girls teams across more age grades next season,’ Teja said.

Earlier this year Teja was named as the 2018 Female Football Week Coach of the Year Award.

Shores United are looking for more junior female players. Contact: [email protected]
