Coach Jessine Bonzas praised the conduct of the WA players on and off the pitch after they performed admirably in the National Training Centre Challenge at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

Eight WA players were identified as among the best in the country after two days of inter-state challenges.

Players from all states were then put in mixed teams and competed in two additional days of matches.

“It was a really successful trip and the players were fantastic all week on and off the field,” Bonzas said.

“To have eight players involved in the top four (mixed) teams is fanstastic for the girls and for the game in WA.

“The main purpose of the trip was talent identification and the girls were excellent during the Challenge.”

The identified girls were Roisin Connolly, Emily Henderson, Gabby Dal Busco, Ellie La Monte, Abbey Meakins, Lexie Moreno, Steffi Nadilo and Alyssa Van Heurck.

On day one, Schofield’s goal turned out to be the winner in WA’s 1-0 success against Victoria in a positive opening match.

The players backed up that performance with a 4-0 win over Northern Territory with Schofield again finding the net. Meakins scored twice and Connolly was also on target.

On day two, WA showed promising signs in a 1-1 draw against South Australia. Schofield was on target again, scoring her third goal in four matches.

WA were unable to continue their unbeaten streak, going down 1-0 to ACT in a match described by Bonzas as a good learning experience.

Football West chairman Liam Twigger has thanked Jamie Harnwell for his contribution to the Perth Glory Women Westfield W-League team over the past four years.

Football West News

Adelaide United today announced Harnwell as the new coach of the Lady Reds for the 2015-16 Westfield W-League season.

Harnwell, who will coach PS4 NPLWA side Sorrento against Sydney FC in a high-profile Westfield FFA Cup clash at nib Stadium on Wednesday, led Glory Women to Premier’s Plate success and their first Grand Final appearance last season.

Twigger thanked Harnwell for his dedication to WA women’s football.

“Jamie has proved himself on the national stage after building a team that became one of the very best in the country,” Twigger said.

“He has established an outstanding reputation in the women’s game with an appreciation of its specific challenges and by establishing a great rapport with the players under his guidance.

“It’s great to see that Adelaide United have recognised Jamie’s exceptional ability in this area and we wish him well this coming season.”

Following a transfer of management of the WA W-League team from Football West to the Perth Glory Hyundai A-League club, Glory legend Bobby Despotovski was appointed head coach of Glory Women.

He will be assisted by former Glory and Westfield Matildas midfielder Collette McCallum.

Harnwell, who is also Football West General Manager of Community Football and Game Development, was delighted to take up the challenge with the Lady Reds following the departure to Brisbane Roar of previous coach Ross Aloisi.

“It’s going to be a challenge because Ross has done a great job in getting the group to be competitive over the past couple of seasons,” Harnwell said.

“It’s about trying to build on that with the young South Australian talent they’ve got.”

Adelaide finished seventh in the eight-team competition last season.

“There are certain similarities with my first season at Glory when we relied mainly on local players and our recruitment,” Harnwell said.

“Adelaide have got some good young players coming through who want to establish themselves and we want to be competitive and finish as high in the table as we can.”

Last season, Glory made a record winning start to a W-League season with six successive victories. They completed the league campaign with a record number of points and the most goals scored in winning the Premier’s Plate.

Canberra United edged out Glory, 3-1, in the Grand Final.

Harnwell was looking forward to continuing his coaching career in Adelaide.

“It’s going to be a refreshing change for me and it’s exciting to be starting another chapter of my coaching career,” said Harnwell, who will take a leave of absence from Football West duties during the W-League season.

Football West also extends best wishes to Despotovski and McCallum as they embark on their first season in charge of Glory Women.

Westfield Matildas to tackle World Champions

July 24, 2015 By: Penny Category: World Football


Matildas v USA

Wednesday, 22 July 2015

nic kerber
The Westfield Matildas will play two international matches against recently crowned World Champions USA in the lead up to next February’s Olympic qualifiers.

The two matches against the USA, to be held on 17 September and 20 September in Detroit and Birmingham respectively, will be the Westfield Matildas’ first hit outs since bowing out in the quarter finals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015.

After a gallant 3-1 loss to the USA in their opening group stage match of the World Cup, Westfield Matildas Head Coach Alen Stajcic is pleased to have the opportunity to take on the benchmark in women’s football, the Americans stamping their authority as the world’s best following their 5-2 win over Japan in the World Cup Final earlier this month.

“We can’t ask for better preparation playing the World Champions and the country who is the number one ranked team by a long way now,” Stajcic said.

“We had a great game against them in the World Cup and we’ll be looking to renew that battle and see how much we have improved in that two or three month period since the World Cup.

“We’ll just be looking to build on our momentum. We played pretty well in Canada and showed a good level of football, so our goal is to keep improving on our consistency, on our maturity on the ball, there are still a lot of areas we need to improve on.

For Stajcic, the matches against the USA will provide an invaluable first building block for the Westfield Matildas as they attempt to make progress through a difficult qualification for next year’s Olympic Games.

“We showed we can be a competitor on the world stage and this will be another good test for us to see how much we have matured and also to fine tune our play before we get to the difficult Olympic qualifiers in February,” Stajcic said.

“This is the first building block on our way to the Olympic Games qualifiers.”

As a significant boost in preparation for these matches, a host of the Westfield Matildas are currently plying their trade in the USA’s National Women’s Soccer League, something Stajcic knows can only be highly beneficial for the team’s development.

“The more players we have playing overseas the more experience they’re getting and the better it is for our national team,” Stajcic said.

“Michelle Heyman scored a goal on her debut for Western New York flash, while Sam Kerr struck the winner for Sky Blue FC last week, so they’re showing it wasn’t a fluke that we performed well on the world stage and I know that they’re going to bring this experience back into the national team.”

“For the players currently playing in America we’ll meet them over there and the domestic players will probably come in for one camp prior to the matches.”

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

The next generation of WA’s talented women’s players will head to Canberra this week to take part in the National Training Centre Challenge at the Australian Institute of Sport.

Football West News

Coach Jessine Bonzas said the WA players were excited about taking part in the tournament, which will be played under a modified format compared to previous years.

WA players will compete as a squad in four matches played on Friday and Saturday before players are assigned to different teams to assist selectors with talent identification.

“The aim is to get as many players as possible identified for opportunities with the national teams in future,” Bonzas said.

“Last year, Gabby Dal Busco got into the Young Matildas team, which was great for her and for WA.

“The NTC Challenge can also be a springboard for some of our players to get into the W-League.

“This week is really the culmination of everything these players have done over the years. All the girls are excited to showcase their talent on this stage.”

Fourteen-year-old Lexie Moreno, of Dianella, is the youngest player in the squad, which consists mainly of players aged 16 and 17.

Doubleview resident Georgina Teakle and Liana Cook, who is from Esperance, are the only 15-year-old players in the squad.

Several of the current squad members gained valuable experience with their involvement last year when WA scored victories against Victoria, Northern Territory, Tasmania and Queensland. WA finished fifth in the nine-team competition.

The team departs on Thursday, July 23, and returns on Monday, July 27.

Squad: Gabby Dal Busco (Tuart Hill); Nadia Harvey (Ballajura); Steffi Nadilo (Spearwood); Alyssa Van Heurck (Dalkeith); Georgina Teakle (Doubleview); Ellie La Monte (High Wycombe); Shauni Reid (Woodvale); Abbey Meakins (Woodlands); Roisin Connolly (City Beach); Sarah Kenny (Alfred Cove); Emily Henderson (Mundaring); Liana Cook (Esperance); Georgia Donaldson (The Vines); Cassandra Harvey (Ballajura); Lexie Moreno (Dianella); Erika Chilcott (Quinns Rock); Maddison Schofield (Brabham).

Glory legend Despotovski named Perth W-League coach

Perth Glory has announced that former striker and Johnny Warren Medalist Bobby Despotovski will be its new W-League coach, replacing Jamie Harnwell in the role.


Despotovski was delighted to be given the opportunity to coach on the national stage, especially for a club he has adored since his playing days.

“I’ve had great times at Perth Glory, from scoring goals to winning trophies, now I’m determined for silverware as a coach,” he said.

“I know we have the passion and determination to claim the highest honour in Australian women’s football.

“I’d also like to acknowledge my predecessor and former team-mate Jamie Harnwell who led the Women’s team to the grand final last season. He had a stellar season and achieved a lot. Hopefully this year, we can go one step further.”

Bitter split as Harnwell quits Glory after coaching slight
Former Perth Glory captain player and Perth Glory Women W-League coach Jamie Harnwell ended his long association with the club after a contractual dispute – saying he’s had ‘enough of being treated like this, really’.

Despotovski will be joined by recently retired Matildas midfielder Collette McCallum, who has been named assistant coach.

McCallum played 50 W-League games for the Glory Women and made 81 appearances for Australia, scoring 11 goals for the Matildas.

“I’m thankful to still be involved with the team and I am looking forward to learning as much as I can from Bobby and Kenny (Lowe),” she said.

Despotovksi played 241 games for Perth Glory between 1996 and 2007 and is the club’s all-time leading goal scorer (113 goals).

The 44 year old is no stranger to success. He won two back-to-back National Soccer League championships in 2003 and 2004, while in 2005-2006 he was awarded the Johnny Warren medal and took out the Golden Boot in the same year.


United States Fox Sports scores big with Women’s World Cup

July 10, 2015 By: Penny Category: World Football

The Equalizer Staff July 9, 2015

It’s safe to say the Women’s World Cup was a booming success in the United States.

The U.S. beat Japan, 5-2 in a dominant display, of course, but things went well off the field, too. Fox Sports reports that it pulled in $40 million in advertising revenue for the month-long World Cup. The company had expected to only pull in $17 million.

The TV viewing numbers helped, too. The U.S.-Japan final drew 25.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched soccer match in history in the United States. An additional 1.2 million viewers watched in Spanish on Telemundo, representing a 97 percent increase from 2011.

As reference, the 2014 men’s World Cup generated $529 million in advertising revenue.

Some food for thought on womens football wages

After USWNT victory, what now for NWSL?

Hello there. So you just fell in love with the United States women’s national team, champions of the world once again after throttling previous champions Japan in Sunday’s Women’s World Cup final, 5-2.

The United States women’s national team is, now officially, the most storied program in its sport. Sunday’s World Cup title was the country’s third, the most among any nation. Germany won twice, in 2007 and 2011, and Japan was aiming to become the third team to win two title but fell quite a distance short.

The Americans also own the Olympics. They’ve won four of the five all-time gold medals in the competition, including three straight.

And Carli Lloyd? Well, Carli Lloyd is no stranger to big-time goals, although that one from midfield on Sunday to complete her 16-minute hat trick was something else. Lloyd scored the game-winning goal in the 2008 and 2012 gold-medal games, the only man or woman to ever seal the deal in back-to-back Olympic gold medal games.

[KASSOUF: Lloyd proves she’s the World Cup hero she knew she would be]

By now, you’ve seen that these women, despite being historically dominant and the best at what they do, do not get paid nearly as much as their male counterparts.

It’s true, the United States Soccer federation will receive $2 million for its Women’s World Cup victory. Last year, Germany received $35 million for winning the men’s World Cup. The U.S. received $9 million for the men’s national team reaching the round of 16 at last year’s World Cup.

What’s more, the U.S. players on an individual level don’t make as much as men’s players. A recent financial report, required by law for U.S. Soccer, revealed that the best-paid women’s player was forward Alex Morgan, who made $282,564 between April 2012 and March 2013 (which was before the new collective bargaining agreement was signed).

Most of the money the women’s players make comes through endorsements, especially from apparel companies like Nike.

[MORE: Will Wambach retire? Ellis faces Olympics questionsHoliday retiring]

Furthermore, the reality is that these players all (except Abby Wambach, sort of) play in the National Women’s Soccer League, a nine-team domestic league in its third season of existence, trying to thrive on tighter budgets than those that saw its two predecessors fold after three seasons each.

As I first reported, the current minimum salary in the NWSL is $6,842, with the maximum salary coming in at $37,800 for the April-October season. The numbers aren’t pretty, and they don’t even factor in the use of amateur players, who get paid nothing beyond the coverage of basic expenses so that they maintain their amateur status. Amateur players have been heavily relied upon this season due to the extended absences of U.S. and other national team players.

The total salary cap is $265,000 for the 20-player active professional roster for each team.

Yes, those numbers are scary, but they are more realistic. The Women’s United Soccer Association (WUSA) burned through $100 million from 2001-2003 while riding the coattails of the United States’ 1999 Women’s World Cup victory. Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) lost a fraction of that but still couldn’t survive on seven-figure budgets.

So NWSL was born following the 2012 Olympics. This league is backed by the U.S. Soccer Federation and its purpose is to both give players a sustainable league and, most importantly to the federation, give national team players a weekly place to play at the highest level.

[KASSOUF: The deleted text, motivational email that predicted Lloyd’s hat trick]

Attendance is as humble as salaries in the league. The NWSL averaged 4,121 fans per game for its nine teams in 2014, but the number is significantly skewed by the anomaly that is Portland Thorns FC, which averages over 13,000 fans per game. The next-closest draw, the Houston Dash — also backed by an MLS team — drew 4,539 fans per game.

Average league attendance was down slightly from 2013, the league’s inaugural season.

Teams hope that this World Cup title claimed by the United States, and the attention being given to it by more casual fans, brings more attention to the league. Saturday’s Seattle Reign FC game is expected to be a sellout of over 6,000 fans. The Houston Dash — home to Lloyd, the hat trick hero of the World Cup final — opened the upper bowl of BBVA Compass Stadium to account for the swell in ticket sales.

It’s unclear if any U.S. players will participate in this weekend’s league games, but having spent the month with the team and spoken with players after the match and the day following, I’d unofficially put the answer at doubtful. The U.S. women will be in New York on Friday for a historic parade, the first put on by the City of New York for female athletes since 1960.

If you can’t get enough of what you saw in June and July, the NWSL is for you. Like any league, there will be great games and duds, superstars and players who aren’t as up to the grade, good refs and bad — everything you might expect. You can watch all the games on YouTube, and some of them on Fox Sports 1. The league is home to some of the best players in the world who you otherwise, unfortunately, won’t see on the world stage with their national teams — Seattle’s Kim Little and Jess Fishlock among them.

The league is now tasked with trying to keep folks like yourself around and interested for longer than just a week. I was in Rochester, N.Y., in 2011 when the city was shut down in the days following the 2011 World Cup — the U.S. lost to Japan in the final — and some 15,000 fans showed up to Sahlen’s Stadium to watch the Western New York Flash — with Morgan, Marta and Christine Sinclair — play the now defunct magicJack and hometown hero Wambach. The usual crowds hovered around 2,000 fans per game (they still do today).


Queens Park hit by a Beckenham Gale

Monday, July 06, 2015

Beckenham Angels kept the pressure on the top two in the Bank West Women’s State League Premier Division after a 2-1 win against second placed Queens Park at Sutherlands Park on Sunday.

Report by Peter Simcox

The Angels sit in third place, six points behind league leaders Northern Redbacks who had a comfortable 6-0 win over NTC.

Stephanie Cain opened the scoring mid-way through the first half, before Katarina Jukic added a second on the stroke of half time. Nicole Campbell halved the deficit with 20 minutes remaining, but the visitors could not find the equaliser.

Although she was not on the scoresheet, Angels’ Jamie Lee Gale was outstanding, and both goals came from the winger’s crosses.

“We had enough chances to win by a few more, but we failed to take our chances, but they defended well,” Gale said.

“We must keep going and continue to do what we’ve been doing all season, and we’ll see how we go, so it’s onwards and upwards for us now.”

Angels Coach Jason Washington-King said if they keep winning they can push for the title.

“Today’s game could have been over before half time, but they have a good keeper and she played well, but we kept going and got our rewards, and I think we deserved it,” he said.

“There is a long way to go but the girls are playing well, and we have to play all the teams at the top of the table again, so the players know if we can keep on winning, their destiny is in their own hands.”

The rain clouds were hovering at kick off and it was the home side who dominated early.

Cain fired over after good work from Marianna Tabain on 12 minutes, but they were ahead on 24 minutes.

Gale made space down the right and whipped in a great cross to Cain, whose shot squirmed under Queens Park keeper Maya Diederichsen and rolled into the net.

The Queens Park custodian then saved well to deny Roxy Dodd, but there was little she could do when the home side doubled their lead on the stroke of half time. Gale again was the provider.

It looked like the ball was going out but she raced forward and managed to get her cross in from the bye-line, and it was not cleared by the Queens Park defence.

Jukic produced a cheeky back heel to score from 4m and send the Angels in 2-0 at the break.

It was much of the same after the break with Beckenham piling forward, and Campbell had to be alert to clear Tabain’s shot off the line early.

Tabain was in the thick of the action again moments later. The Perth Glory Women midfielder’s long-range shot was only parried by Diederichsen, but the Queens Park custodian was alert to save the follow up shot from Cain.

Beckenham were peppering the Queens Park goal. Gale picked out Dodd, whose shot was saved low by Diederichsen on the hour, and then Cain fired into the side netting after being sent clear by Tabain.

Referee Peter Wagener awarded an in-direct free kick in the area, for a high foot, but Dodd’s shot was blocked on the line and cleared.

Against the run of play the visitors were back in the game on 70 minutes. Queens Park skipper Campbell won the ball in the middle of the park, and ran at the Beckenham defence, before unleashing a long-range low shot which flew into the bottom corner of the net.

It was game on and Brooke Johnston went close to the equaliser moments later, cutting in from the left, but Kate Burns was out quick to deny her.

Queens Park pressed late, and Stacey Learmont had their best effort with four minutes remaining, but her free kick drifted just wide of the target.

Aquino, who has won the award two-years running, had shown great leadership from the back according to former Perth Glory Women midfielder and head coach Elisa D’Ovidio.

“Morgan is a very consistent player and has had a fantastic tournament,” she said.

“She is a great leader for the girls and there is plenty more to come from her.”

D’Ovidio is pleased with her side’s performance despite finishing fourth-placed in Group A.

“It was both a physical and mental test for the girls,” she said.

“But they challenged themselves, played good football and showed they can keep up with best in Australia.

“There is plenty of positives to take away from the competition and it’s amazing to see the style of football evolving.”

The U13 team finished second-placed of Group B, equalling the same points as table-toppers Canberra but falling short on goal difference.
