Westfield W-League attracting international stars

Westfield W-League attracting international stars

Women’s football in Australia has already been given a boost for the new Westfield W-League season with the inclusion of newcomers Western Sydney Wanderers FC, but there are a number of players who have already proven themselves on the international stage that are helping to grow the sport’s profile in this country.

With Westfield Matildas and Football Ferns throughout the league – as well as German import Ariane Hingst at Canberra United and Japan’s Hoshimi Kishi at Brisbane Roar – will we continue to see even bigger names moving Down Under in the near future? And what effect will this overseas contingent have on the development of local talent?

Adelaide United showed on Saturday that they are keen to distance themselves from their poor showing last season, edging out Wanderers FC 4-3 in a round one thriller.

The Lady Reds are one of several clubs to have called upon stars with international experience, boasting three Ferns who were part of New Zealand’s 2012 London Olympic squad.

Sarah McLaughlin, Holly Patterson and skipper Abby Erceg all enjoyed an Olympic summer and have returned to add an international flavour to the league. But they aren’t the only overseas footballers plying their trade in Australia.

Ariane Hingst pulled on a green jersey for the reigning champions on Saturday, but the German stalwart is no stranger to Australian football, having played for Newcastle Jets in 2011/12.

The calibre of overseas players can only be seen as a good thing for the growth of the competition, but it does raise the question of whether it will affect the development of local youngsters seeking to gain experience in the nation’s premier women’s football league.

Perhaps an influx of international players will be something that needs to be addressed in the future, but for the moment the Westfield W-League is still a breeding ground for talented Australian youngsters, and every club is keen to see a new star break into their first team.

Due in some part to uncontrollable factors – with seven Westfield Matildas who competed in last year’s World Cup ruled out for the entire season with either lingering injuries or pregnancies – there has been a massive injection of youth throughout all eight teams.

And while international stars will always be welcome to raise the standard and profile of the competition, it’s good to know the local youngsters are currently reaping the benefits of this burgeoning football league.

Glory girls start season with a bang

Perth Glory Women started the new Westfield W-League season with a 2-0 win over Melbourne Victory at Intiga Stadium today.

Football West Report by James Mooney

The Glory looked to make the most of the hometown advantage and sweltering conditions, as it reached 27 degrees by the 10.30am kick-off.

The Victorians came into the game with the wood over the Glory, who only managed to record two wins from their seven previous encounters.

The Glory took control of the game right from the whistle, however were unable to capitalise on their chances early on.

Elisa D’Ovidio pushed hard in the midfield along with captain Collette McCallum, however once getting in a position to score, the final touch let them down.

Victory attempted to play off the counter attack only to be halted by Liz Milne standing strong in the centre of defence.

Perth’s Marianna Tabain was causing all sorts of trouble for Victory’s backline, constantly running into space and sending in cross after cross.

The best chance of the half came from Tabain’s efforts as she crossed to McCallum, whose attempt fired into the side net.

Victory almost grabbed the lead late in the first half as Ashley Brown sent in a cross to Tiffany Eliadis, whose first time volley flew past the wrong side of the post.

More frustration for the Glory came in the second half as Carys Hawkins sent in a piercing cross from halfway onto Kate Gill, but she was unable to connect for the simple tap-in.

Finally the pressure became too much for Victory with 15 minutes to go, a solo run from Gill found her one-on-one with Davey and this time she didn’t miss her chance.

The game was all but over minutes later as Tabain’s hard work was rewarded with her 20-yard chip finding its way into the top right corner as the Glory locked the game up.

Coach Jamie Harnwell was pleased with the squad on the whole with a large part of the credit going to his defence.

“Last year we were under a lot of pressure and I though we needed a back four that we could build a platform on and with the girls we got this year we certainly got that,” said Harnwell.

Finishing second from bottom last season, Harnwell has come into this season with high expectations.

“You got to set your sights on the finals, that’s what you’re here for to play in big games and that’s what I said to the girls at the start of the season as we’ve got strong squad on paper.”

Glory’s next game will be this Saturday against Adelaide United at Intiga Stadium with kick-off at 3pm.

Perth Glory v Adelaide United W League

October 25, 2012 By: Penny Category: W League

25 OCTOBER, 2012


After starting the 2012/13 Westfield W-League in the best way possible, Perth Glory will be looking to make it back-to-back victories when the team comes up against Adelaide United this Saturday afternoon.

Last weekend saw the Glory defeat Melbourne Victory 2-0 thanks to second-half goals from Kate Gill and Marianna Tabain. This time around they will be looking for redemption after wooden spooners Adelaide United defeated Perth last season in what was the Lady Reds’ first victory in 35 attempts.

England goalkeeper and Chelsea Ladies captain Carly Telford was thrilled to keep a clean sheet last week against Melbourne and is hoping for more of the same this weekend.

“I’m really looking forward to it, the girls put a really good shift in on Sunday,” said Telford.

“I think we’re a bit of an unknown quantity to a lot of clubs and I think people might be shocked by the result but we’re a side where we’re going to be competitive this year and we set high standards for ourselves, so we’re going to be competing in this league.

“I think Adelaide on Saturday should be a good game for us and it was competitive last year, but I think we’ll be looking to pick up the three points and it’s important for us to pick up momentum into the harder games.”

Young gun Ella Mastrantonio has been included in the17-player squad after returning from a knee injury, along with defender Thia Eastman who is in contention to make her Westfield W-League debut.

Westfield Matilda Aivi Luik will have to wait at least another week to make her Perth Glory bow as she recovers from a hamstring injury.

Kick-off on Saturday will be 3pm.

Sydney FC W League squad: Sam Kerr

October 19, 2012 By: Penny Category: W League

Simon set to lead Sydney

Written by 

Sydney FC have announced their squad for the 2012/13 W-League season.  Although fielding 11 teenagers, coach Alen Stajcic has unveiled a team full of international experience from Australia and New Zealand. 

Kyah Simon takes over the Sydney captaincy | TWG

Sydney have also announced a new captain with striker Kyah Simon taking over the captain’s armband from Danielle Brogan, who on Tuesday underwent surgery to repair an ACL ruptured in a pre-season trial match. 

Simon leads a team boasting eight Matildas including Ellyse Perry, Sam Kerr, Caitlin Foord and Alanna Kennedy as well Football Ferns trio Annalie Longo, Hannah Bromley and Emma Kete.  Also named in the squad are several U17 and U20s representatives. 

“We’re thrilled with the team we have been able to put together for the 2012/13 season,” said Stajcic.

“Kyah will captain the team, which is a sign of the younger, more exciting squad we have selected. She takes over from Danielle Brogan, who was going to play a big part in the season until she unfortunately suffered the knee injury.”

Circumstances have forced an overhaul of the Sky Blues team.  Servet Uzunlar, Sarah Walsh and Teigen Allen joined the new Western Sydney Wanderers side in the offseason while Brogan and striker Leena Khamis succumbed to ACL injuries, defender Thea Slatyer and midfielder Kylie Ledbrook retired and Heather Garriock ruled herself out early through pregnancy. 

Despite that Stajcic, who has coached some of the best young talent in Australia through to the Westfield Matildas, believes that his young side has the quality to continue the strong NSW tradition. 

“We have selected a younger team with pace, mobility and some of the most exciting players in Australian women’s football.”

“We have been training well and we’re really looking forward to the season kick off against Newcastle on 21 October.”

Blackmores, Australia’s leading natural health brand, has joined the Sydney FC W-League team, which boasts eight Australian internationals, three New Zealand Internationals and six players who have represented Australia at underage level (U17 and U20).

In another major boost for the Sky Blues, Blackmores has come on board as the new shirt sponsors for the women’s team for the 2012/13 season.

Blackmores becomes the first company to invest money directly into the Sydney FC W-League team, a sign of the increased popularity of women’s football. The Blackmore’s logo will be proudly displayed on the front of the Sydney FC W-League and National Youth League strips.

“We have received a lot of corporate support but for Blackmores to commit to helping our women’s team is a testament to the growth and popularity of women’s football.” Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata said. 

“Blackmores is thrilled to be partnering with Sydney FC’s Women’s and Youth Leagues, and wish them the best of luck for the season ahead,” said Blackmores Director, Sales and Marketing, Jim Van Bruinessen.
