This year, the U16 Girls City South Squad participated in the 2017 State Titles in Mudgee.
The quality of football played as each player adapted to different positions and challenges contributed to the positive outcomes and enjoyment of this prestigious tournament.
The tournament as expected was a challenge to all players against some very talented opposition. The players approached each game with confidence and considering the limited time spent together their teamwork and understanding was of a very high standard.
The character and composure this group of hardworking players showed when match conditions were difficult, was clearly evident by the effort put in by all players. It was also very pleasing to see the encouragement each team member showed to each other throughout the whole tournament.
The team produced some memorable performances with many highlights that we will always remember. A special thank you to our very vocal parent supporter base, which included a “Mexican Wave” – something that will be talked about for a long time.
The Football South Coast, Sutherland, Macarthur, Southern Districts and Bankstown Associations can be very proud of their development programs and football pathways, as these young women demonstrated by their achievements.
We wish all the players the very best as these talented, young women continue along their football pathways.
We would like to acknowledge and thank all players, parents, Convenors (John Whiddett and Jeff Stewart) and Manager (Kaitlyn Nicholson) for their support. It has been a pleasure to be part of such an enjoyable and successful experience.
