Wilson finalises Roar squad

Written by 

The most successful team in the W-League, the Brisbane Roar have finalised their 20 player squad for the fifth season of the W-League kicking off this weekend.  

New coach Belinda Wilson has stuck with a winning formulae and has retained the core of the squad from the past four seasons including captain Clare Polkinghorne and new vice captain Elise Kellond-Knight. 

“I’m over the moon to finally have the squad finalised,” Wilson said. 

“Now that it’s organised, I’m looking forward to concentrating on the football and our own performances.”

Matildas Tameka Butt, Emily Gielnik, Laura Alleway, Brooke Spence and the returning Elise Kellond-Knight form the foundations of the Queensland squad. Japanese goalkeeper Hoshimi Kishi returns for her second season as a probable No.1 with the season long osteitis pubis injury ruling out championship winning ‘keeper Casey Dumont. Queensland products Erika Elize (Perth Glory) and Katrina Gorry (Melbourne Victory) have been lured back home. 

Several new faces have been rewarded for strong seasons in the local Brisbane Premier League including The Gap striker Emma Pittman and Redlands United trio defender Georgia Chapman, goalkeeper Joanne Buckley and utility player Sachiko Tatsuoka.

“We went to the local Diamond League and we found some great players, including Sachiko,” she said.

“She’s a very highly technical Japanese player who played in the Nadeshiko League in Japan, the top level over there.”

While English striker Hannah Beard adds international flavour to a strongly Queensland squad. 

“Hannah’s been playing more recently over in America in the college system,” she said. “She’s an exciting player – an out-and-out striker who brings speed and has an eye for goal.”

Brisbane Roar meet Canberra United this Saturday, 20 October at McKellar Park in the grand final re-match.

Adelaide City Edge out Beckenham Angels

Adelaide City hold out Beckenham Angels

Sunday, October 14, 2012

Adelaide City defeated Beckenham Angels 1-0 in the opening game of the Interstate Challenge at Dorrien Gardens.

Report by James Mooney

It was Western Australia’s best taking on their equivalent from South Australia, with the southerners striking first blood.

It was a game which had two sides with an equal amount of quality that could only be separated from an early penalty.

Both teams started off cautious as the sides spent time trying to work each other out.

The rain began to come down as both sides were pushing hard only to be halted by both defences who stood tall, leading to a congested midfield.

After 25 minutes, the pressure soon gave way against Beckenham as Antonia Jukic took down Elise Whorlow, stopping her before she could get on the end of a good through ball from Monique Iannella.

Referee Mark Williams pointed to the spot and Iannella stepped up and slipped in the opening goal of the game.

Iannella was causing all sorts of trouble for Beckenham down the right wing, however her crosses were being blown away as the swirling rain showed no sign of moving on.

Beckenham continued to push, but City’s defence looked too strong to break.

Early in the second half, Beckenham came out with more intent as they threw in cross after cross, however were unable to put one past keeper Hayley Truskewycz.

Beckenham were creating chances only to be lacking in their second effort as several spills from City’s defence went unpunished.

Captain Danielle Jeans pushed hard up front, but as the rain once again began to crash, chances became scarce.

Kirby Larsen came into the frame with two late chances, only to be halted by a sliding tackle from Nicola Diamond and a shot stopping save from Truskewycz.

Adelaide’s Daniela Di Bartolo quick feet allowed her to send a long ball into Alexandra Ladas who was cut off just in time by Diamond.

Moments later Di Bartolo found herself inches away from doubling her side’s lead, however her tap in was blocked by a diving Kristy Teschinsky save.

Adelaide’s defence did their job and managed to keep Beckenham out to hold on as 1-0 winners and give South Australia a perfect start in the best of three games on the day, with the Amateur Challenge and Semi-Pro Challenge matches played immediately after to decide the overall winner.

Kate Gill ready for W League

Gill primed for W-League return

Friday, October 19, 2012

Perth Glory striker Kate Gill says she can’t wait to get back playing in purple when the 2012/13 Westfield W-League gets underway this weekend.

The former Asian Player of the Year missed last season’s campaign after sustaining a serious knee injury and needed a full reconstruction.

Despite returning to the Westfield Matildas fold earlier this year, this weekend’s clash against Melbourne Victory will be Gill’s first game back in Perth Glory colours.

“I just can’t wait for the game to begin,” said Gill.

“It’s been a very long time and it will be good to be back playing with the girls again.

“I’ve got to give plenty of thanks to Kenny Lowe and the Boys National Training Centre for assisting me in my rehabilitation and getting match fit in the local State League.”

Perth Glory coach Jamie Harnwell has recruited strongly with Gill and fellow Westfield Matildas Aivi Luik and Collette McCallum signing on for the upcoming season, with the latter named club captain.

England goalkeeper and Chelsea captain Carly Telford has also joined the Glory with two other internationals; Canadian Sasha Andrews and Kiwi Liz Milne.

Sunday morning will see the Glory host a very different looking Melbourne Victory after having a reshuffle of their own.

“Yeah we don’t know too much about them, but Mike Mulvey has taken over and it is going to be a very tough game,” said Gill.

“I’m just hoping to get through the 90 minutes, play my part and hopefully we can start the season with three points.”

Perth Glory A-League supporters are encouraged to attend before making their way to nib Stadium for the men’s match at 2pm.

Melville City FC Academy Trials for boys and girls

October 15, 2012 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard

2013 will be another ground breaking year for Melville City FC with the establishment of an elite junior academy. After the success of the inaugural State League season where Melville had both womens (Division One Champions and promoted into the Premier league 2013) and mens represented in the new State league divisions, the club has recognised the need to create a pathway for talented players.
In the first season, the Academy teams will run from under 11s to under 16s and the programme will be overseen by State league Head Coaches Dan Evans and assistant Gavin Brown. In a massive coup for the club, John Curtin Football Director Peter Rickers will also come on board as the club’s Director of Coaching.
The ethos of the academy will be to develop players on a tactical, technical, physical and psychological level. Although winning is important, the focus will be on developing players that are capable of playing for Melville State league teams and hopefully beyond. Of equal importance will be the development of Melville’s coaches. Enhanced coach education is paramount to the ongoing success of the junior programme and the club.

The academy will be originally focused on the more talented junior players but the need to develop the underpinning community programmes is also a priority for the club. Peter Rickers will be implementing systems to ensure that no talented player gets lost within the massive ranks of one of Perth’s biggest Football clubs. Furthermore, the club recognises that to become a force in both the mens and womens WA State League’s, junior development is of the highest importance. State League players involvement with the junior squads to facilitate integration between juniors and seniors is integral to the success of both programmess.
For more information about the programme, please feel free to contact the club.
The trial dates are as follows
(Gairloch Reserve
Applecross WA 6153, Australia )
16th 11s/12s (5pm- 6.30pm) 14s (7pm-8.30pm)

Adelaide Uniteds W League squad 2012/13

Lady Reds unveil international signings

Lady Reds unveil international signings

Adelaide United captain Abby Erceg has returned to the Westfield W-League for the 2012/13 season and headlines the trio of New Zealand internationals who have signed on for the Lady Reds’ upcoming campaign.

Erceg, who will skipper the side again, is joined by Holly Patterson and Sarah McLaughlin as the Lady Reds foreign contingent, with all three members of New Zealand’s 2012 London Olympic Squad.

Erceg has made 79 appearances for her country and is already a seasoned international at just 22 years of age, while 20-year-old creative forward McLaughlin has represented New Zealand 38 times.

Patterson, a lively winger, is the youngest of the trio at 18 years of age, but has already clocked up 18 caps for her country.

Lady Reds Head Coach Dave Edmondson welcomed back Erceg, as well as Adelaide United’s new international signings.

“Abby’s return was a critical signing after her performances last year and her influence as a leader,” he said.

“Whilst Abby will again look to sure things up at the back, Sarah and Holly will add some excitement at the other end of the field. Both are attacking players with a good eye for goal, the ability to take players on and create and score goals.”

“Abby was a stand out defender across the league last year and has returned from the Olympics in fantastic condition raring to go for the new season.”

“I am sure Sarah and Holly will be keen to continue the trend of Kiwi Internationals performing well for Adelaide United Lady Reds.”

Sydney FC and Cricket for Ellyse Perry

October 12, 2012 By: Penny Category: W League

Perry set for two-sport weekends

Updated Wed Oct 10, 2012 6:08pm AEDT

Dual sporting international Ellyse Perry is preparing for a hectic mix-and-match summer which is likely to see her play both football and cricket on the same weekend.

Perry returned from Sri Lanka on Tuesday morning following Australia’s four-run win over England in Sunday’s World T20 cricket final and was due to resume training with her W-League club Sydney FC on Wednesday afternoon.

Sydney – which on Wednesday announced Matildas star Kyah Simon as its captain – expects to have Perry available for all but two of its 12 W-League regular season games.

The domestic T20 and one-day competitions – like the W-League – are conducted between October and January, inevitably causing fixture clashes with Perry’s cricket team, New South Wales Breakers, and her new soccer team.

Asked if Perry could play both sports on the same weekend, Sydney FC coach Alen Stajcic said “that’s a possibility”.

“They (Breakers) tend to have a triple-header, they tend to play Friday, Saturday, Sunday, so it will just depend on which is the bigger game.

“But we’ve already mapped it out and she will be available for ten out of the 12 games at the moment.

“That’s a pretty good scenario, any player can miss one or two games for any reason.

“She’s committed to that and if anything else happens, we’ll just play it by ear.”

Perry had effectively been forced out of her former W-League team Canberra, club officials telling her she had to choose between the two sports because she could not always commit to soccer.

Several months later she came to a deal with Sydney FC, which allowed her to continue to play cricket as well.

Perry – who will play at either right or left back – and skipper Simon will be among eight Matildas in Sydney’s W-League squad.

One of Sydney’s other major recruits is 19-year-old Matildas forward Sam Kerr.

“I’d been in Perth for a while and I just wanted a new challenge and I thought Sydney was the place to do it,” said Kerr, who has recently returned form an ACL injury.

New Zealand internationals Emma Kete, Hannah Bromley and Annalie Longo have been added to the squad, which lost some players to the new Western Sydney Wanderers.

With 12 teenagers in his squad of 20, Stajcic said his emphasis was on performances ahead of results.

He expected 2011-12 grand finalists Brisbane and Canberra would be up there again and said Perth had improved and Western Sydney would be strong.


Womens Cup 2012 wrap

Redbacks make it five straight Cups

Monday, October 08, 2012

Northern Redbacks have won the Bankwest Women’s Cup after defeating rivals Beckham Angels 3-1 in a penalty shootout on Sunday afternoon.

Report by Andrew Ellis

Beckenham came out the stronger of the two sides, with both Lindsey Jobling and Danielle Calautti trying their luck from distance.

A quick attack down the left saw both Kirby Larsen and Calautti running through before the former crossed into the center. Keeper Steph Grant was alive to the danger and cut it out before it could reach the arriving Calautti.
The Redbacks started to come back into the game, and were unlucky not to score when Ash Bager’s header was cleared off the line from a Katie Moth corner.

Alesha Dyer was looking lively for the Redbacks, and almost caught out Angels’ keeper Kristy Teschinsky with a whipped cross that hit the side-netting.

Dyer had another great chance to open the scoring after being picked out by Lindsey Jobling on the edge of the box. Her touch was good, and she managed to get her shot off, but Teschinsky was out quickly to smother.

Beckenham responded by upping their tempo, and almost found a way through when Calautti just failed to get on the end of a dangerous ball into the box. They came even closer on the stroke of half-time, when Steph Grant had to be at full stretch to tip Jamie-Lee Gale’s shot past the post.

The Angels started the second half strongly, with Gale and Calautti linking up impressively. Yet it was the Redbacks who drew first blood, Renee Leotta picking up Carol Howes’ pass and firing an unstoppable finish into the roof of the net.

Beckenham hit back shortly afterwards when captain Danielle Jeans’ cross deceived Grant and drifted in at the back post.

Beckenham looked to have a decent penalty shout when Kirby Larsen tangled with Lynsey Valentine but their appeals were waved away by referee Renee Silvester.

At the other end Leotta nearly gave the Redbacks the lead with a volley that landed on the roof of the net after a clever first touch.

That was the last real chance of note for either side as the game ended all square, meaning penalties were needed to determine the winner of the Cup.

Beckenham stepped up first, captain Jeans finding the bottom right hand corner. Williams repeated the trick for the Redbacks before Jobling’s penalty crashed off the crossbar to hand the advantage to Redbacks. Nicola Diamond fired into the bottom left hand corner to make it 2-1. Beckenham’s Kristen Kofler saw her penalty saved. Amy Knight scored for the Redbacks, meaning Gale needed to score to keep the Angels’ hopes alive.

Unfortunately for her, Grant was equal to the task and the Redbacks won the Cup in the most dramatic of circumstances.
