WA football legend Sandra Brentnall will be recognised by Football West at the upcoming Bankwest Women’s Cup Final, with a medal to be named in her honour.

The Sandra Brentnall Medal will be awarded to the player adjudged best afield in the Cup Final between Northern Redbacks and Beckenham Angels.

2012 has already seen Brentnall inducted into the Football Hall of Fame WA’s Hall of Legends for her playing exploits which included scoring Australia’s first ever goal in ‘A’ international competition and first ever hat-trick.

Brentnall will select the best afield and present the medal after the match.
“It is such an honour, I’m just shocked about it all,” said Brentnall.
“I’m absolutely wrapped, getting in the Hall of Champions all those years ago and then the Legends this year and now this – it’s just unreal.”

Brentnall is still an active player in the Bankwest Women’s State League Division One with Leeming Strikers and this year saw her bag 11 goals.

The Cup Final will see Northern Redbacks looking to make it a staggering five-straight Cup wins in coach Tim Hodgson’s final match in charge. In their way stands fierce rivals Beckenham Angels, who were crowned 2012 league winners last weekend.

Both teams will also be locking horns this Sunday 30 September in the final round of the regular Bankwest Women’s State Premier League season at Celebration Park, with kick-off at 1pm. Make sure to head down for a preview of what the Cup Final will have in store!

Brentnall is tipping Beckenham to complete the treble after already winning the league and pre-season Night Series.

“I’ve seen them a few times this year and they have a fairly strong squad, with good players coming off the bench,” said Brentnall.

“But anything can happen in the Cup!”

Melville appoint Tony Carvajal for 2013

Melville City appoint Tony Carvajal as 2013 coach

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Melville City FC scored a major coup in securing Tony Carvajal as their Bankwest Women’s State Premier League coach for 2013.

Melville City FC women became League Champions without having to play their last game in the State League Division One against Subiaco.  Thanks to the organisation and application of 2012 coach Tony Castiello and Head Coach Jonny Gibson, the young, mostly teenage squad are in great shape moving into the Premier League next season.

The Reserve side secured their league trophy in the same week and in topping up the first team, proved all-round quality at the top level for the club.

The women have been consistently promoted through the junior leagues, open competition and now success in State League football 2012. A sheer weight of numbers and huge talent pool spurs them on.

Carvajal comes off a two-year break from women’s football and after a five-year span at one of the state’s oldest and most reputable clubs – East Fremantle. Carvajal moulded the squad into a ball playing, organised outfit, sweeping through his tenure with two Night Series crowns, and a top four finish in every year he was coach, plus the Top Four trophy.

A schoolteacher and Deputy Principal at Banksia Park Primary School, Carvajal is a highly qualified coach and occasional radio presenter. Carvajal has valuable skills the club needs to move forward. In his absence from top flight women’s football, he has been busy coaching state teams, organising school competitions such as the Glory Cups and teaching!

To add to the mouth-watering attraction of the Melville experience, the club supports a vast age range of players in elite programmes such as NTC, dedicated soccer schools such as John Curtin and state teams. The 15s and 13s Premier girls both won their leagues and both the Division One sides finished in the top two of their leagues. The Under 12 state schools coach Coach Gavin Brown teaches at John Curtin and some of the Melville girls are under his wing. There are six Melville players that made up the 15 player squad selected from the whole of WA for the Darwin Under 12 School Championships, it is great going for the biggest club in WA.

The Melville players in the U12 State School Sports WA team were:

Katie Grayson – Captain, Sofie Osborne – Vice Captain & 2012 State U13 representative, Sasha Edwards, Daniella Simatos, Aufa Moosa, Hannah Williams

Matildas scare Olympic Champions United States

A MATILDAS side brimming with teenagers has impressed almost 20,000 soccer fans in California by going down to newly crowned Olympic champions the United States by just a goal in a women’s friendly this morning.

Lisa DeVanna put the Aussies ahead early in the match before Alex Morgan equalised in the 55th minute and then played a role in the winner eight minutes later.

Australia warmed up for the match with a 4-0 victory over Haiti last week in a match where teenage goalie Brianna Dave made her international debut and the opposition goalkeeper was accidently knocked out by a teammate.

The whitewash was the perfect lead-in to this today’s game, with coach Tom Sermanni opting to give numerous rising stars the experience of international competition on the North American tour.

“It’s promising at the moment and we’re hopeful that all those teenagers continue to improve as they get older,” said Sermanni, who has seven teens in his squad.
“We think we’ve got some real talent in the squad. Tours like this are a great opportunity and a great learning experience for those players.”

Jamie-Lee Gale in the NTC Challenge

WA soccer girls

back from ACT

Armadale Examiner, Perth

13 Sep 2012, by James Dessent


Jamie-Lee Gale was

part of the Football

West under 18 girls

squad that recently

returned from a national

competition in

Canberra winless but

with their pride firmly


According to Gale the

decision to send a team

from Western Australia

to the national training

centre (NTC) challenge

at the Australian

Institute of Sport was

made late, leaving the

squad little time to gel.

“We’d never played

together before and

considering we were

thrown together at the

very last minute, we

really did quite well,”

she said.

“We may not have

won any games but we

came close on a couple

and got some great

experience playing

against quality players

from around the country,

which is what it’s

all about.”

Head coach Gary

Church was also happy

with the team’s performance.

“The NTC challenge

gave our girls a

memorable experience

as well as an idea of

the benchmark if they

were to pursue football

careers playing against

the best girls in Australia

and reaching the

Matildas,” he said.

“Tom Sermanni, the

Matildas’ head coach

commented on how

much the WA side had

improved throughout

the week as well as

identifying one of our

youngest players.”

Gale said it was inspiring

to see the professionalism

that some

of the girls from the

other states possessed.

“The girls from New

South Wales were

amazing, I mean they

beat us eight goals to

nil,” she said.

“But they were a

team that had trained

together for a long time

in the lead up and so

they new each other’s

games inside out and

that connection within

the team is what we are

aiming to have.”

Gale studies exercise

physiology at Murdoch

University and plays

fot the Beckenham

Angels at a women’s

premier league level.

“I think I’ve always

been a sporty person

and I particularly like

football as a hobby

because it takes your

mind off other things,”

she said.

Canberra United sign German ace Hingst

September 19, 2012 By: Penny Category: W League

Canberra United have signed Germany international Ariane Hingst for the 2012/13 Westfield W-League season.

The highly experienced defender, who played with Newcastle Jets last season, joins Jitka Klimkova’s in their title defence after their record-breaking championship.

“I am really happy about signing with Canberra United and playing yet another season in the Westfield W-League with one of the best teams,” Hingst said.

“It’s always a great challenge to be the one to be scouted and I can’t wait to bring in all my skills and experience to help win the title.

“I already have great impressions about the professional work in Canberra and after being in contact with Jitka about pre-season training, I can’t wait to finally meet the team at the end of September and get the ball rolling again.”

Hingst has 174 caps to her name, and one of the most decorated women’s footballer of all time, with two FIFA World Cup winners’ medals and four European Championship winners medals.

Canberra United CEO Heather Reid was delighted to be able to bring the experienced international into the Canberra ranks.

“Securing Ariane for Canberra United underlines our intentions,” Reid said.

“To be able to add such a decorated and capable player to our ranks will bolster our already strong line-up and we look forward to seeing Ariane in green for 2012/13.”

Roar announce new W-League coach

September 19, 2012 By: Penny Category: Football in the Media, W League

Brisbane Roar have appointed Belinda Wilson as head coach of the club’s Westfield W-League team.

The experienced Wilson, who has spent the last three years in Norwegian football, replaces former coach Jeff Hopkins, who left the role in June to take up a position as assistant coach to Rado Vidosic for the club’s Hyundai A-League squad.

“I’m very excited – this started as a dream I didn’t think would come into fruition when the opportunity came,” Wilson said.

“It’s an awesome feeling and I’m excited to experience what’s ahead.

“I’m glad to be back in Australia to help women’s football because we’ve got a really bright future (in regards to) where we are headed at a national team level.

“If we can get our national competition really competitive, it will help us in international football and domestically.”

After beginning her football career with Football Northern NSW, where she was involved in elite player development, she held the responsibility of being Asian Football Confederation’s Director of Women’s Football between 2007 and 2008.

Further to that, she has also spent the past four years involved with FIFA as a Women’s Football Instructor, with AFC as Elite Coach Instructor and as Director of Coerver Coaching in Norway, where Wilson was involved with the technical development of football players.

She was also a part of FIFA’s Technical Study Group for both the past two FIFA Women’s World Cups and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

All her prior roles have included both theoretical and practical work and she believes this host of experience will prove crucial as she aims for success as Head Coach of a team that has reached all four of the Westfield W-League Grand Finals to date.

“I’m always up for a challenge,” she said.

“Queensland football, and this team in particular, has always been very strong and I hope we can continue that.

“The players that are in the squad and the coaching staff we have will continue in that direction.

“We want to be in the finals and we want to continue this legacy.

“The management roles I’ve had will help me in moving the team in the right direction.

“In terms of my experience, we’ll see what happens on the pitch but I don’t think the players will question my ability.”
