The Dynamos Premier Ladies made a triumphant and historic debut in the Perth Metro Division 1 to announce their arrival in comprehensive style.

This is the first season in the Dynamos’ 49 year history the club has a team entered the Perth Metro Comp.

The Dynamos were up 2-0 at half time over Perth team Backpackers FC before running away to win 6-1 at the Forrest Park match on Sunday.

Coach Dave Goldsmith said the players were thrilled by the win over last year’s winner of the Metropolitan Cup (knock out competition across all six divisions).

“When the siren went they were over the moon, I think they were a bit relieved at the same time,” Dave said.

“As a coach I could not have asked any more of the girls.”

The club hopes that Bunbury will become a fortress for visitors and it was very appreciative of players and members who turned out to cheer on the home team.

Dave said they were also delighted to see players from other clubs who had played before or nearby wandered over to give their support too.

“If we are going to achieve anything this year we will have to win all our home games and make it a place Perth teams don’t want to come to,” he said.

The average age of the players is 19 years old with a blend of youth and experience, the captain is 23 year old Joeley Goldsmith.

Dave has previously coached Dynamos men’s teams and is club vice president. After considering a season away from coaching duties he took the reins of the women’s team at the start of preseason.

His original plan with the backing of the club was to attempt a women’s team in the Perth league within two years, but when the opportunity presented itself to go earlier it quickly became a two month plan to be organised in time for this season.

Key was ensuring the players gave their commitment to the season ahead and the club has provided strong support.

Dave said the talented squad would take the next 20 home and away matches a week at a time but he had no doubt the players had enough potential to be a real contender in their first year.

They have a bye this week with a friendly organised to keep them match fit before playing at home again to top team Melville.

Dynamos have long been one of the dominant clubs in the South West Soccer Association with the women’s teams being no exception.

The club’s depth and strength can be seen in massive amount of junior players. About 350 juniors play for the club and it is actively developing its young female players with dedicated teams and development coaching clinics to help make the senior teams ranks sustainable in the longer term.

The team thanked their sponsors Bunbury Batteries and Radiators, Shaddick’s Lawyers and BGC Construction who are all helping keep the team on the road and on the many parks they will play at this season.

De Vanna will lead Australia against Canada in its Olympic opener on Aug, 3.

A longtime star in the United States at the club level, De Vanna oftentimes gets overlooked internationally in conversations surrounding the world’s best. The Australian is known to be quite mercurial, but when she is on, she can flip a game on its head like no other. When channeled in the right direction, De Vanna has lightning speed and a competitive fire that can lift her team to great heights. De Vanna showed that fire at the 2015 World Cup, scoring two goals for the Matildas and playing a central role in Australia’s giant upset of host Brazil in the Round of 16. De Vanna is one of the Aussies’ best all-time players and, with 38 international goals, is just four goals shy of becoming her country’s all-time leading goal scorer.

Beckenham Angels say new synthetic soccer pitch gives them advantage

June 03, 2016 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard

THE Beckenham Angels admit the new synthetic pitches at Mills Park do give them the advantage over their rivals.

Premier Colin Barnett opened the $47 million facility on May 27, which includes two synthetic soccer pitches – the first of its kind in the state.

The Beckenham facility also features football ovals, a community centre, tennis courts and leisure areas.

The Angels are having an outstanding year and are sitting in the top five in a tightly contested Women’s State League.

Angels player Jess Lindquist said the pitches suited their style of play, which was a tight passing game.

“It provides consistency and you know what to expect when you are on turf but when you are on grass the ball can bobble up,” she said.

“We like a high possession game – we look to play it out from the back and maintain possession from our midfield.

“We are used to grass and it’s fine, but this is lovely to play on for the passing game. If someone strikes the ball and it’s going one way, it’s going to continue one way.”

Goalkeeper Stacey Cavill has had experience playing on synthetic soccer pitches in the United States and said they were the best example of these pitches she has played on.

“I always find that the home team always does a little bit better because of the conditions,” she said.

She also said it made it easier for the goalie as the penalty area did not get ripped up towards the end of the season.

Girls set sights on Matildas future

Friday, June 03, 2016

Dreams of representing the Westfield Matildas are motivating the latest batch of young WA female players ahead of next week’s National Training Centre Challenge in Canberra.


Football West News

WA coach Jessine Bonzas said the giant strides women’s football had made in recent years was reflected in the increasing quality of girls’ teams.

“There’s more opportunity with the W-League and the Matildas than there was five or 10 years ago and the girls can see a pathway to get there,” Bonzas said.

“The group of girls going over to the NTC Challenge aspire to play for Perth Glory in the W-League and the Young Matildas and Matildas. They’re aspirational and they are working extremely hard.”

Bonzas, who has been involved in the NTC for five years and coaching State teams since 2001, said players were rising to the challenge.

“Five years ago, we were probably a long way off but every year the players in the NTC are getting stronger and stronger,” she said.

The NTC Challenge, which involves the best young female players from around the country, will be held at the Australian Institute of Sport from June 9 to 13.

It showcases Australia’s best U17 talent and is used by football officials to identify talented players for inclusion in the national U20 and U17 teams.

The WA team has been preparing over the past six months and Bonzas is confident the girls will perform to their ability in Canberra.

“This is seen as part of their journey and our focus is on development,” she said. “I have no doubt the players and team will grow throughout this opportunity.”
