The premier women’s soccer club in Perth’s south east is running a major pre-season football clinic in 2014 to attract young girls into the world game.

The clinic by the Beckenham Angels Soccer Club is at Mills Park, Brixton Street on Sunday 16 February from 9.15am until 11am. It will be led by Beckenham and ex-Perth Glory women’s players Danni Calautti and Kristy Teschinsky, and winner of the 2011 Football West women’s ‘golden boot’ award, ‘Andie’ Preiato.

There will be free posters and other giveaways to girls who attend. Other planned attractions include appearances by current Perth Glory Women players.

The club, which is the current Football West women’s State League cup winner and Bankwest 2012 premier league champions is aiming to build for the future by fielding teams in the U13 and U15 junior divisions in 2014 and forming an additional team to develop top-line players including those in the 15 to 18 –year age group.

Andie Preiato, who will be coaching the U15s girls team, said it was vital for the club to develop a girls’ soccer program to produce the next generation of Angels. ‘We have a number of highly skilled and passionate young women players who have coaching skills and want to use these to show girls just how much fun and liberating playing soccer can be.’

We carried out a similar but relatively small–scale clinic before Christmas and now want to consolidate on its success to build our two girls teams.’

Playing a game that has been seen as being a boy’s game is very powerful for girls and can give them a lot of physical and emotional strength and confidence.’

Perth Glory Women coach Jamie Harnwell has emphasised the importance of the club’s remaining two games of the Westfield W-League season, despite his side having fallen short of a finals place.

Glory will take on Melbourne Victory at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex this Saturday before returning home to take on Western Sydney Wanderers at Percy Doyle Reserve next weekend.

Glory’s finals bid came to an end last weekend but Harnwell said players should be looking to make the most of the coming opportunities as he begins planning for next season.

“I have spoken to the players about the importance of these last two games for the club, the supporters, each other, but most of all themselves,” he said.

“I need to find out that players want to be here and are prepared to work hard to make sure we return to the finals next season.”

After last season’s first finals appearance, Glory had high hopes of more success in 2013/14 but the team has been crippled with injuries and suspensions.

Captain Collette McCallum and Matildas teammate Aivi Luik, as well as Kat Jukic and Kathleen Waycott have been ruled out for the entire season.

Matildas star striker Kate Gill has also missed several games through illness, while key defender Sasha Andrews only returned to action last week following an ankle injury.

The latest player to be added to the injury list is star striker Rosie Sutton, who has been ruled out of the remaining two matches with an ongoing hip complaint.

“It is another blow for the squad to lose Rosie but she has been playing with pain over the last few weeks and we couldn’t ask her to continue doing it,” Harnwell said.

“Once again, though it gives other players an opportunity to step up.”

A boost for the team’s defensive stocks will be Welsh international and inaugural Glory player Carys Hawkins, who has signed following a successful stint with Sunnana SK in Sweden.

“It’s great to welcome Carys back into the squad,” Harnwell said.

“With the sheer number of injuries and illnesses we have experienced we have had to ask a lot of our younger players, so it will help being able to bring some experience back into the squad.

“Carys has been training with us for a while now to maintain her fitness so she should fit smoothly into the squad.”

Nicola Williams Joins Ashfield as Men’s Youth Coach

January 31, 2014 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard

Arguably the biggest club signing for 2014 comes in the form of ex Matildas and Perth Glory W – League coach Nicola Williams. Nicola joins the club in the position of youth team coach (18’s).

Club president Bill Busby is over the moon on the appointment and understanding Nicola’s credentials jokingly put the rest of his senior coaching team on notice, ‘to have someone of Nicola’s experience is fantastic and we all look forward to working with Nicola in helping her continued development as a coach as well as her helping us with our ambitions of being a recognised pathway for top young players’.

Nicola is one of very few in the state whom hold an Asian Football Confederation ‘A’ coaching accreditation. She was Head Coach of Australian W-League team Perth Glory in their 2008-2009 inaugural season, other roles have included assistant coach of the National Young Matildas U20 team following her role as the head coach of the Australian Girls U13 team in 2010.

Nicola continues to also apply her trade as a player for 2013 women’s State League champions Northern Redbacks.

Canberra prevail over Perth

Canberra prevail in finals race

Monday, January 27, 2014

Canberra United secured a Westfield W-League semi-finals berth as they defeated Perth Glory 5-1 at McKellar Park on Australia Day.

With Russ Gibbs at McKellar Park, Omnisport

Goals from Ellie Brush, Caitlin Munoz, Lori Lindsey and a late brace from Georgia Yeoman-Dale sealed the win, which coupled with results elsewhere, gave Canberra a seven-point cushion over Adelaide United.

The Lady Reds have just two matches to left play, which means Canberra United cannot finish below fourth.

In the absence of Matildas goalkeeper Lydia Williams, Canberra handed a first start of the season to under-study Trudy Burke.

Grace Field came in for her first game of the year in place of Sally Rojahn whilst the promising Meg McLaughlin replaced Ashleigh Sykes up front. Perth meanwhile played Kathryn Gill in the hole behind a three-pronged strike-force that signified their attacking intent, the line led by the enthusiastic running of Rosie Sutton.

Early opportunities were scarce at both ends of the park with the first real shot in anger not materialising until the 14th minute when Munoz found space on the edge of the Glory penalty area but dragged her right foot shot wide of the post.

Perth stopper Chantel Jones was by far the busier of the two goalkeepers flinging herself low to her right to push a Michelle Heyman cross-shot away for a corner as the home team kept searching for an early breakthrough. Nicole Sykes was next to try her luck, a scything half-volley comfortably dealt with by Jones after Stephanie Ochs had been inches away from connecting with a cross as Canberra scented a goal.

At the other end Burke was a virtual spectator, rarely troubled by the sporadic Perth breakaways and thus it was little surprise when Canberra took the lead eight minutes before half-time.

When the goal came it was simplicity itself. Lindsey created it, swinging in a near-post corner that was matched by the run of centre-back Brush whose flicked header had enough power to sneak past Jones.

Having gone ahead Canberra extended their lead only moments later. Heyman was brought down just outside of the penalty box and from the resultant free-kick Munoz blasted a perfect shot around the wall and into the corner with Jones left floundering.

And it was almost three on the stroke of half-time as Jones was forced to fling herself acrobatically backwards to palm a long-range Heyman missile over the bar.

The pattern was much the same after the break as Ochs set the tone testing Jones’ reflexes with a deceptive fizzing drive before McLaughlin looped a header onto the roof of the net following another dangerous Lindsey set-piece delivery with Canberra in the ascendancy.

Perth finally mustered a half-decent chance just past the hour mark when Marianna Tabain engineered room inside the Canberra box but was wasteful with her finish, rushing the effort and blazing harmlessly over the bar when a shot on target may have paid dividends.

Tabain had a chance to better that when she lined up a free-kick 25 metres out minutes later but again the shot was poor, always rising as it cleared the crossbar.

United was always a threat on the break and McLaughlin should have capped her maiden start with a first-ever goal when sent clean through on goal by Lindsey but the youngster lacked decisiveness, dawdling over the chance, and failing to get enough purchase to steer the ball past the advancing Jones.

With one eye on Wednesday’s blockbuster with Sydney FC, Migchelsen withdrew Heyman with twenty minutes to play bringing on the pace of Yeoman-Dale.

The change prompted more Canberra pressure with a number of shots peppering the visitor’s goal as Ochs and McLaughlin went close in rapid succession.

It appeared inevitable that Canberra would increase their lead before the end and they did so with nine minutes remaining.

Ochs was the architect, skipping past a tired challenge and swinging a delightful cross into the danger area. The Glory could only half clear and Lindsey pounced on the loose ball, ramming a vicious low shot past Jones from close to the penalty spot.

Perth had some consolation three minutes later as Gill met a deep cross with an inch-perfect header that arced over Burke and into the top corner, just reward for an industrious display from their most experienced player.

United wasn’t finished yet however and they rounded off the scoring in stoppage time.

McLaughlin was involved in the fourth, sliding a square pass to the unmarked Yeoman-Dale who picked her spot to finish with aplomb and the super-sub was at it again two minutes later making it 5-1, her first touch taking the ball away from her marker and the second guiding it under Jones and into the net to round off an excellent late cameo and a comprehensive success.

Incredible comeback seals Glory win

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Perth Glory Women coach Jamie Harnwell would have preferred his side to start the way they finished, but couldn’t fault the effort of his players to come from behind and win 3-2 against Newcastle Jets at Percy Doyle Reserve.

Report by Kalon Harrison

The Jets took a 2-0 lead inside the first half hour, but a resilient Glory never gave up.

“We wanted to keep a clean sheet and defend well, but we didn’t,” Harnwell said. “I can’t ask the girls to do more to get themselves out of that situation, but we’ve got to do better.

“We’ve still not given up hope on the top four; while it’s still there mathematically, we have to believe that we can make it and try for it.”

Harnwell praised player of the match Elisa D’Ovidio after she was shifted into an unfamiliar role at right-back after performing well there last weekend.

“The way she goes about her football and her commitment and attitude rubs off on all the other girls and it’s really pleasing to see her do well,” he said.

The away side opened the scoring against the flow of the game in the 20th minute when a long ball found its way to Tara Andrews, who beat two defenders and slotted the ball into the bottom corner.

Newcastle doubled their lead eight minutes later when winger Sophie Nenadovic brought the ball inside from the flank and shot early to catch Chantel Jones offguard and find the back of the net.

Glory responded brightly though and within three minutes they had pulled one back.

Newcastle failed to clear their lines after strong pressure from the home side and the ball found its way to D’Ovidio 30 yards out from goal, who lashed a half-volley through a sea of bodies and into the bottom corner of the goal.

Glory grew in confidence and created an abundance of chances that were ruled offside on several occasions.

Rosie Sutton scored Glory’s equaliser with the last kick of the half, slotting the ball cleverly underneath Eliza Campbell after a cross in from Marianna Tabain.

Glory’s fight back was completed when Tabain was found by Sutton on the wing and she finished from the corner of the penalty area across Campbell into the bottom corner with 23 minutes to play.

Perth went about the second half with much more confidence having gone ahead and limited the away side to very few opportunities in the last 20 minutes.

Christina Julien couldn’t quite score the goal she was desperately after in her last match for the Glory, coming close on two occasions in the last 10 minutes, but Campbell was equal to the task on both occasions.
