Glory Women with the Smarter Than Smoking contestants

Friday, November 28, 2014

A group of Perth Glory Women have brought smiles to the faces of local students on a recent visit to Armadale Senior High School.

Kate Gill, Shelina Zadorsky and Gabe Marzano attended the school on Wednesday to deliver a fun coaching session.

Glory players were invited to the school after students produced an entry for the 2014 Smarter Than Smoking Young Directors’ Festival, which included a football element.

The school was approached by Healthway to take part in the campaign, which involved putting together a 30-second advertisement highlighting the negative effects of smoking.

Glory also benefit from significant Healthway funding through the Smarter Than Smoking message.

After working on the film for three terms the school marked the end of the festival by holding a Wellbeing Expo to celebrate the students’ achievements and showcase their work.

Jenni Young, a teacher at the school, spoke of the importance of having Glory women at the school.

“Students with special needs need visuals as well as physical prompts,” she said. “For the message to become real they need to be able to experience it.

“Putting part of the film with the soccer and then having the girls come out here on the day of the celebration just helps in making that message a little bit deeper for them.”

Gill, who is currently the league’s top goal scorer, was truly moved by the experience.

“I’ve achieved some amazing things throughout my career, but in all honesty to be able to captivate and engage the attention of special needs students through football was extremely humbling,” Gill said.

“Their smiles and sheer enjoyment they illustrated was priceless.”

Gill, Zadorsky and Marzano are back to business on Sunday when they travel to WIN Stadium to take on Sydney FC in a match broadcast on ABC TV from 3pm (WA time).

Glory unchanged for Sydney clash

November 28, 2014 By: Penny Category: W League

Friday, November 28, 2014

It has already been a season of unprecedented success for Perth Glory Women and there is no sign of an end to the record breaking campaign.

But coach Jamie Harnwell has little interest in the record books just yet.

After a week off, it is back to business for the Westfield W-League Premiers as they travel to WIN Stadium to take on Sydney FC on Sunday.

Despite having wrapped up top spot and claiming the first success of Glory’s seven-season W-League history, this match is far from a dead rubber with another milestone on the horizon.

Glory’s nine wins from 10 matches has earned them a 27-point haul equal to the record number of points in a single campaign achieved by Canberra last season.

A draw or victory against Sydney will confirm Glory’s league season as the best since the W-League was formed in 2008.

But the potential to post a record number of points is far from Harnwell’s mind.

“It’s not something I have tried to dwell on too much,” Harnwell said. “It would be a fantastic achievement again for this team if it happens.

“But if you start thinking about what might be, you forget to concentrate on the now, so that’s something to think about after the game.”

Harnwell’s side remains unchanged ahead of the Round 11 clash.

The match has particular resonance for Glory’s Samantha Kerr, Caitlin Foord and Alanna Kennedy, who will take on the club they helped win the 2012-13 W-League Grand Final.

But this will be no easy task against a Sydney outfit seeking a win to seal a place in the finals.

A victory over Glory will also take the Sky Blues a step closer to wrapping up a home semi-final.

“Sydney are a strong team and we had a real arm wrestle with them here, with a bit of Marianna Tabain magic, clinching us the 3 points,” Harnwell said of Glory’s 1-0 win on October 18. “They’ve got quality all over the park, and we can’t go over there complacent.

“They are fighting for a home semi final and we need to match that.”

Catch all the action from WIN Stadium on ABC TV Sunday at 3pm nationally. Coverage is delayed in Perth.

ABC Television concludes W-League broadcasting after 2014 season

ABC Television concludes W-League broadcasting after 2014 season

Today’s budget cuts means the end of the W-League on the ABC, a partnership that has lasted seven seasons.

On the back of the Abbott Government’s cutback of $254 million from the public broadcaster over the next five years, ABC Managing Director Mark Scott today announced more than 400 ABC staff could lose their jobs.

In a statement on the ABC website Scott said that those cuts will include state based local sports coverage.

“With the ABC facing declining audience interest in local sport competitions and some codes chasing commercial opportunities, ABC Television is revising its sports strategy to ensure the most cost-efficient use of resources and optimal audience impact.”


Sky Blues eye Glory on ABC TV

Staff writer
Tune in to ABC TV each Sunday at 3pm nationally for LIVE Westfield W-League action, this week featuring a potentially epic match-up as ambitious Sydney FC welcome newly-crowned premiers Perth Glory.

The quality of the individuals spread among the two teams is almost without par and spectators at Wollongong’s superb WIN Stadium, not to mention national TV viewers, are set for a treat.

It will also be a reunion of sorts as Caitlin Foord and Sam Kerr return to face their old team for the first time away from home since their off-season move. For Wollongong starlet Foord, the match also marks a rare opportunity to turn out in her hometown.

Following a shocking mid-season Sydney FC know they can lock up a semi-final berth with victory here, and they can also put one hand on a home semi-final. There is indeed much at stake for the Sky Blues.

Perth Glory head east on a massive high, and they proudly boast their maiden Westfield W-League silverware after nailing down top spot in the last round.

The challenge now for Jamie Harnwell’s free-scoring side is to maintain that momentum into the finals. And they could barely have wished for a tougher task than away to Sydney FC.

The ABC TV Sunday afternoon broadcast games are hosted by Stephanie Brantz, with former Westfield Matildas and W-League star Sarah Walsh joining Peter Wilkins in commentary.

Catch all the action Live nationally at 3.00pm Sunday on ABC TV, or catch up from Monday on ABC iView with a full replay each Tuesday at 3.30am.
