Norwood Football Club has continued to foster the future of women’s football on Eyre Peninsula as it works towards creating a senior women’s competition.
Norwood held its latest free women’s football clinic at Centenary Oval on Sunday with seven participants taking part in training exercises.
This followed the last one that was held about three months ago that saw 16 women take part.ADVERTISING
Norwood senior women’s team coach Steve Symonds said these sessions were to see participation numbers in Port Lincoln as the club has big plans for women’s football on Eyre Peninsula, including some form of a senior competition.
“There’s going to be some work, it’s about planting a seed for a start,” he said.
“We’re having a number of girls from under 17s and under 15s come to Adelaide (to play), when they come into the senior women (grade) that will increase numbers as well.”
Mr Symonds said the club would continue to hold regular sessions and work with the SANFL in starting a senior competition.
Another goal for Norwood is to have an Eyre Peninsula team created for the state championships after the Eyre Peninsula was the only region not represented in 2018.
