Shores United women’s football team has had another good win for the season, beating Alstonville seconds 1–0 last Friday night at home on the Bob Bellear Field.
After six rounds the team is sitting in sixth position with three wins.
The side was formed in 2019 and had plenty of success in second division, including winning last year’s premiership.
This year the women’s premiership and second division have been combined, but the side has already had some wins against the top-level sides of Bangalow and Maclean.
‘We are really happy with the way we are going. Especially considering we don’t have a second team to call on for more players, although some juniors are coming through,’ said coach Melissa Phillips.
‘The team has a big emphasis on fun and fitness. If we are not having fun, there is no point,’ she said.
The team has another challenge this week when they take on the second-placed team, Richmond Rovers, playing away in Lismore.
‘They are another competitive side and have a few premiership-quality players. They’ll be hard to beat, but we are looking forward to it,’ she said.
‘It’s good to have the support of a wonderful club. We try and get down to see the men’s games, and they watch ours. It’s awesome to have so much support’.
