Football West News

The State Government, with support of the Department of Sports and Recreation, gave the highly successful women-only club a $500,000 grant for the redevelopment of club facilities.

Redbacks Treasurer Keith Anderson thanked the Barnett Government, DSR and the City of Stirling for their support.

“This [government funding] has converted a very outdated building consisting of four gloomy change rooms with limited showers and toilets, to a facility with modern tiled change rooms, showers and toilets considered suitable for today’s female athletes,” he said.

“The addition of the clubroom, complete with referees changeroom, dedicated toilets, storerooms, and an integrated kitchen and kiosk, is a huge assistance for social and club management functions and weekly fundraising activities.”

Anderson believes the facilities will help with the ongoing growth of the women’s game.

Melville snatch top spot

Melville City snatched top spot after a narrow 2-1 defeat of Queens Park in the Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Division top-of-the-table clash at Coker Park on Sunday.

Report by Adrian Klein

Goals to Lucy Jerram and Jamie Duncanson was enough to secure three points and send Melville to the top.

Melville coach Gabrielle Walker-Ortega was impressed with her side’s attacking display.

“I’m ecstatic with the way the girls played, I couldn’t be more proud of them,” she said.

“To always put pressure on is something we usually don’t do enough, but we did that perfectly today which won us the game.

“The backline and our goalkeeper is where our strength comes from, if your defence is strong then the rest of your team won’t be afraid to push up.”

The away side snatched the opening goal in the fifth minute as goalkeeper Loren Mahoney failed to clear a pass back leaving Jerram to score against an open net.

Melville were able to secure their second on 25 minutes. This time through Duncanson who did well to strike low towards the near post.

Queens Park came out firing after the break.

Sadie Lawrence gave Queens Park a glimmer of hope as she fired home from the edge of the box in the 64th minute.

With two minutes left of play Brooke Johnston came close to finding the equaliser but her headed effort was off target.

Queens Park coach Ben Anderton said that the two early goals were too much for his side to come back from.

“They got two quick goals against us which at the end of the day in the conditions and the way they played was hard for us to bring it back,” he said.

“We knew they were going to come out hard and press us strong, so we tried to play a bit more expansive football to open up the pitch but they did well to get two goals in the first 25 minutes.”

Westfield Matildas, Socceroos in Melbourne double header

May 20, 2016 By: Penny Category: Football in the Media, WA on the world stage

Football Federation Australia (FFA) has today announced that the Westfield Matildas will feature in an all-star double header with the Caltex Socceroos at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium on Tuesday 7 June 2016.

The Westfield Matildas will take on fellow 2016 Rio Games qualifier New Zealand at 5pm before the Socceroos confront Greece at 8pm.

The match will be the official Rio farewell for the Westfield Matildas, who are an all-time high 5 th  on the FIFA world rankings and aiming for a medal in Brazil.

Fans will now get two world class matches for the price of one and witness the best Australian football has to offer.


The Socceroos v Greece match is the second fixture of the  Dodoni Series  and a crucial final preparation for both nations ahead of 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in September.

FFA CEO David Gallop said the double header is a night to showcase the exciting style of Australian football and give equal billing to the women’s national team alongside the men.


“It’s a rare opportunity to see the Socceroos and Matildas in action on the same stage,” said Gallop. “We’re absolutely delighted that our partners in the Victorian Government and Etihad Stadium have collaborated to make this happen.

“There has already been high demand for tickets to the Socceroos’ match against Greece and now the Matildas farewell to Rio will add a great sense of occasion. It will be a fantastic celebration of the game.”

The Victorian Minister for Sport, Tourism and Major Events, John Eren MP, said the double header was another way for Melbourne to demonstrate its status as Australia’s sporting capital.

“We already had a major event in the Socceroos v Greece match and the inclusion of the Matildas adds a great deal of prestige to the occasion,” said Eren.

“The Victorian Government is proud to host an event that has such international importance but at the same time showcases football’s diversity and inclusiveness.”

The Westfield Matildas’ match against the Football Ferns will be shown LIVE on both FOX SPORTS and ABC TV and is a final hit out on home soil in their preparations for the Rio Games.

The highly anticipated double header at Etihad Stadium is not the first time the Socceroos and Matildas have played matches back to back. Indeed, the last time the Socceroos played Greece on Australian shores was a double header with the Matildas taking on Mexico at the MCG in 2006.

With the majority of the overseas based Westfield Matildas players coming back for the match against New Zealand, Head Coach Alen Stajcic is excited about facing their trans-Tasman rivals less than two months out from the Rio Games where Australia will face Canada, Germany and Zimbabwe in the Group Stage.

“We’re delighted that we have been able to lock in a match against New Zealand in the FIFA dates,” said Stajcic.


“It will be one of the only chances we have to get most of the overseas players back here and together before the Rio Games so it will be a really important game for us.

“I’m sure the players will be really looking forward to playing at Etihad Stadium before the Socceroos and in front of our home fans, something we haven’t done since before the FIFA Women’s World Cup last year.”

The last time Australia’s two senior national football teams played a double header was on 23 May 2008 at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium when the Westfield Matildas defeated Canada and the Caltex Socceroos beat Ghana.

The Westfield Matildas and Caltex Socceroos double header on Tuesday 7 June at Etihad Stadium will be shown LIVE on FOX SPORTS.

Melville v NTC match report May 9, 2016

Melville hold NTC to 2-2 draw

Monday, May 09, 2016

Melville City held Football West National Training Centre to a 2-2 draw in round four of the Bankwest Women’s State League Premier Divsion at Winthrop Reserve on Sunday.

Report by Adrian Klein

NTC snatched two goals in the first 15 minutes, but Melville came from behind to salvage a draw.

Melville coach Gabrielle Walker-Ortega said that she was pleased with her side’s comeback.

“I’m happy with the way they played,” she said.

“We deserved to comeback from 2-0 down and I give my credit to my girls for taking a loss in the first half and coming back to give it their all.

“We were really struggling to get the ball into the final third and finish it, but we were playing every other position well.”

The first goal came seven minutes into the first half as a mistake from the Melville defence gifted NTC a free shot at goal which was converted through Rolsin Connelly’s second effort.

It looked like NTC were well in control of the game, netting a second goal nine minutes later as Melville goalkeeper Evie Gooch could only watch on as Llana Cook put it in the bottom left corner.

The hosts responded on 25 minutes when Jamie Duncanson struck the ball from outside the box past Dal Busco.

Melville were able to complete their comeback two minutes into the second half through Tia Stonehill, who beat Dal Busco at the near post.

Both sides continued to battle it out but the spoils were shared at the final whistle.

NTC coach Jessine Bonzas said that she couldn’t complain about her side’s efforts.

“I’m really happy with how the girls are and they’re getting better every week,” she said.

“We controlled the game in terms of possession and played a big attacking brand of football.”
