The Glory brings soccer to Girl Guides for first time in 100 years

On Monday evening, September 15, four international stars from the Perth Glory Women’s team ran a special training session for the Willetton Sunshine Guides under lights at the Willetton Reserve.

Included in the Glory line-up was one of the famous Kerr family, 21 year old National women’s soccer (known as the Matildas) player Sam Kerr – sister of former West Coast Eagle Daniel Kerr. W-League Champion player Caitlin Ford, formerly of Sydney FC, debuted as one of the youngest National players at the age of 16 at the World Cup in 2011. Alannah Kennedy and Glory keeper Mackenzie Arnold completed the star line-up on Monday night that dazzled and enticed the young Guides into becoming firm soccer converts.

Penny Tanner Hoath, Girl Guide Unit Helper and former National player herself, said “My daughter Rose Maree, 7, loves Girl Guides and plays soccer herself. At Guides, we’re all about building character and what’s better than in a team environment while you’re having fun. At our recent camp at Manjedal, our youngest member (6) surprised everyone by crate stacking 14 high while hanging in mid-air with a harness on!”

Always on the lookout for new and fun ways to keep girls outdoors and active, the leadership team of the Willetton Sunshine Guides invited the Perth Glory Women to come along and show the Girl Guides just how it’s done!

Twenty four girls aged between 6 and 10 dribbled, kicked, giggled and learnt their way through an hour playing the most popular sport in Australia and the world.

It was a first time experience for 98% of the Guides and a 100% new experience for Girl Guides in WA to bring soccer and Guides together.

Girl Guides Western Australia is currently celebrating 100 years of Girl Guiding. The values of which friendship, character and respect remain as strong as they did 100 years ago; the activities that we express them in have just changed a little!

If you would like to join the Willetton Sunshine Guide unit in Western Australia please contact Carole OBrien 0411091480. To locate your nearest unit contact Girl Guides Western Australia on (08) 9355 4586

Female coaches key to club (Beckenham Angels)

January 18, 2015 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

Beckenham Angels head coach Jason Washington-King has emphasised the impact female coaches have had on the club.

“Our 2014 junior teams were coached by women players who played at Premier Division level, and we aim to continue this approach in 2015,” Washington-King said.

“This is the big difference at Beckenham compared to most other clubs who have junior girls’ teams – the girls are coached by young women who have great skills and that the players can identify with.

“Our ultimate goal at Beckenham is to see the club run by women who have played and love the game – and who want to pass their passion onto younger females.”

The Angels have produced past and present Perth Glory Women players including Shannon May, who was awarded the club’s Most Glorious Player in 2009.

And Washington-King believes with the support from these elite players will help with the development of women’s football.

“Most of our juniors had never played soccer seriously before coming to Beckenham and developed very quickly thanks to the excellent coaching and support they received,” he said.

“Three of our 2014 junior players have already been invited to join Football West’s elite National Training Centre program.”

Trials for players aged 17 and over will commence on Tuesday, January 20 on the football oval at Lumen Christi College, 81 Station Street, Martin from 6.30 to 8pm.

For further details contact Jason Washington-King on 0401 288 877.

Trials for the 2015 junior teams will take place on Tuesday, March 3 from 5.30pm until 6.30pm.

The junior skills clinic, which is open to girls aged 11 to 17, will take place on Saturday, February 14 at the same venue.

Further information about the clinic and the club’s successful junior program is available from Janice Inkster on 0424 429 377.

Four Perth Glory Women players will kick-off 2015 by taking part in a Westfield Matildas training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra from January 12 to 15.

Football West News

While defender Alanna Kennedy, striker Kate Gill and midfielder Caitlin Foord are no strangers to the international scene, Marianna Tabain will be looking to make the most of her first opportunity to impress coach Alen Stajcic.

The training camp for the 32-player squad is the first in an important year for the Westfield Matildas, who will play in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada from June 6 to July 5.

WA striker Lisa De Vanna, who played for Melbourne Victory in the recent Westfield W-League, is also in the squad, , while Glory’s Samantha Kerr has been prevented from taking part in the camp due to injury.

Stajcic is in the process of confirming the details of the Westfield Matildas preparation program for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup and is excited to start off the New Year with an intense training camp.

“I’ve had a good look at all the players throughout the Westfield W-League season and I am happy with the group of players that I have selected for this camp,” Stajcic said.

“There is a balance of youth and experience in the squad and it will be a good starting point for our intense preparation period.”

“This is by no means a final squad as there are number of players returning from injury that are still in contention for selection.

“It’s now up to the players to make the step up and show the coaching staff why they deserve to go to the World Cup,” concluded Stajcic.

The Westfield Matildas have been drawn in Group D of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 alongside USA, Sweden and Nigeria.

Squad: Teigen Allen (Sydney); Laura Alleway (Brisbane Roar); Melissa Barberi (Adelaide United); Nicola Bolger (Sydney); Danielle Brogan (Adelaide United); Ellie Brush (Canberra United); Tameka Butt (Brisbane Roar); Kim Carroll (Brisbane Roar); Steph Catley (Melbourne Victory); Emma Checker (Melbourne Victory); Alex Chidiac (Adelaide United); Hayley Crawford (Newcastle Jets); Larissa Crummer (Brisbane Roar); Brianna Davey (Melbourne Victory);  Lisa De Vanna (Melbourne Victory); Casey Dumont (Sydney); Caitlin Foord (Perth Glory); Kate Gill (Perth Glory); Katrina Gorry (Brisbane Roar); Amy Harrison (Sydney); Michelle Heyman (Canberra United); Elise Kellond-Knight (Brisbane Roar); Alanna Kennedy (Perth Glory); Teresa Polias (Sydney); Clare Polkinghore (Brisbane Roar); Hayley Raso (Brisbane Roar); Gema Simon (Melbourne Victory); Kyah Simon (Sydney); Ashleigh Sykes (Canberra United); Marianna Tabain (Perth Glory); Emily van-Egmond (Newcastle Jets); Servet Uzunlar (Sydney).

Perth Glory Women striker Samantha Kerr’s exceptional season has been recognised by Football Federation Australia.

Football West News

Kerr’s season was cut short by injury with the star forward missing out on Glory’s finals campaign, which ended with a disappointing Grand Final defeat to Canberra United.

But her sublime skills and instinct to attack was acknowledged with her being named Australia’s top U20 female player in 2014.

She was in elite company with Mile Jedinak and Katrina Gorry named the top Male and Female Footballers of the Year, adding to their recent awards at the Asian Football Confederation Awards night.

Jedinak claimed the award for the second consecutive year after breaking through for his first Footballer of the Year Award in 2013. Jedinak was also named the AFC’s International Player of the year.

Both awards were bestowed upon Jedinak following his outstanding performances as the captain of Crystal Palace in the English Premier League and also through his captaincy and performances for the Socceroos throughout 2014, including the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

For Gorry the gong goes well with the AFC Women’s Player of the Year Award she collected recently at the AFC Annual Awards which were held in Manila.

Gorry was a leading member of the Westfield Matildas team that were runners-up at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Vietnam last July.

At club level Gorry’s team, Brisbane Roar did not figure in the Westfield W-League Finals Series, but she was still a stand-out performer scoring twice in the final two rounds of the season.

Adelaide United’s Awer Mabil took out Male U20 Footballer of the Year.

The FFA awards are decided on the votes of National Team coaches and FFA technical and coaching staff.

Footballer of the Year (male): Mile Jedinak, Crystal Palace FC

Footballer of the Year (female): Katrina Gorry, Brisbane Roar FC

U20 Footballer of the Year (male): Awer Mabil, Adelaide United
