Redbacks bite to claim Night Series

April 12, 2013 By: Penny Category: Night Series

Monday, April 08, 2013

Northern Redbacks were crowned 2013 Premier Division Night Series champions at Coker Park last night in what manager Neil Bennett described as a good advert for women’s football in Western Australia.

Report by Kelechi Osunwa

The Redbacks dominated a very spirited Queens Park side who left nothing in the tank but failed to produce any goals in a first half where both defences made important tackles.

“It was very close the first half,” Bennett said.

“We had to work really, really hard – Queens Park defended really well and made us work for every single ball.

“We realised that was always going to be the case and we instructed the girls to keep the ball moving and to make them work as hard as we possibly could.”

Despite the growing influence of Leigh Kelly and Sadie Murphy, the Redbacks couldn’t find a way past the immense pairing of Brittany Woodfin and Monique Gordon in defence for Queens Park.

After Bennett spoke to his team at half time about being more composed and patient with ball, the Redbacks pressure finally paid off.

From a half-cleared corner, the ball fell to the feet of Carla Bennett.

The Tracey Wheeler Medal winner volleyed past a crowd of bodies into the bottom corner to give the Redbacks the lead.

Queens Park coach Steve Woodfin felt the pressure from the Redbacks took its toll on his side that had been competitive for the entire game.

“We conceded one too many corners,” Woodfin said.

“We’ve got a few things to learn but we’ll get there.

“I’m very happy with the way we’ve gone and we’re still improving, that’s what I want.

“I thought we did (match them), but we lacked that little bit of composure in the middle of the field, but other than that I think we’ll get there.”

The Redbacks victory was finally sealed when Amy Knight broke away from the Queens Park defence, before unleashing a shot from outside the box that any player would have been proud of.

At the end of the game Neil Bennett was full of praise both sides.

“They’re a quality side Queens Park so it’s a great win over a very good team, but our back four today was magnificent.

“Our midfield worked their socks off and it was just a great team performance all round.”

Vale Ron Tindall

The football family is mourning the loss of coaching great Ron Tindall, who passed away on Sunday at the age of 76.

A former Chelsea and Portsmouth player, Tindall had a big impact on the coaching ethos of the game in Western Australia through a decade-long stint as State Director of Coaching.

One of the most knowledgeable and respected coaches, Tindall’s achievements were recognised in 2008 with the Order of Australia Medal for service to sport “particularly the development of football and through the education and development of sports coaches”.

Tindall was born in the London suburb of Streatham in 1935 and at the age of 16 was playing first team football with Camberley Wanderers.

He joined Chelsea’s new youth system in 1953 and over eight seasons turned out on 174 occasions for the club, scoring 69 goals in a prolific strike partnership with Jimmy Greaves.

After a short spell with West Ham United (13 games, 3 goals) and a season at Reading (36 games, 12 goals) before seeing out his playing days with Portsmouth (162 games, 7 goals).

In retirement Tindall coached Portsmouth for a couple of years after which he emigrated to Western Australia.

Between 1977 and 1987 he held the dual role of State Coach and Director of Coaching, a period that included time as an assistant coach with Australia’s Olympic football team.

Tindall was also a Development Coach with the Department for Recreation and Sport for 12 years, founded the Coaching Foundation of WA and helped set up the football programme at the West Australian Institute of Sport.

Tindall was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 2002 and Football West’s annual State Premier League Coach of the Year award is named in his honour.
