MORNINGTON Football Netball Club is celebrating an unprecedented milestone this year, with all six of its girls’ junior and women’s seniors teams making the finals.
The achievement comes eight years after the club first fielded a women’s team in seniors football and five years since Mornington Junior Football Club fielded its first girls’ side.
In junior girls football, the club is represented in under-12s, under-14s and under-16s and has 61 registered players.
In senior football, the women are represented in divisions one, two and three and have 94 registered players.
“We’re incredibly proud of what the girls and women have achieved this year,” the club’s women’s football director Harvey White said.
“They have achieved great things in only a few short years, and we have one of the largest numbers of registered female players in Victoria.
“The next step would be to introduce an under-10s and under-18s program giving the junior players a full pathway to senior football and Mornington Football Netball Club will be looking to work with Mornington Junior Football Club to establish this in 2024.”
The club is looking for more players across all age groups and abilities for next year. Anyone interested should contact Harvey White on: email@example.com and for juniors: firstname.lastname@example.org
