Trials open for Mudgeeraba’s first women’s NPL Football team

Trials for Mudgeeraba’s first and only women’s National Premier League Football team will start at the end of the month.

Players will be competing across the U13, U15, U17 and Open competitions against the best amateur teams across the state.

Club Chairman John White said they needed to create a women’s NPL team due to a number of talented players on the Gold Coast and Northern New South Wales.

“It’s time that girls at all levels get the respect they deserve in an environment where their needs are looked after,” he said.

Part of the swell in popularity of football in Australia is due to the recent form of the Matildas who beat Brazil 2-1 on Sunday in front of a sold out Pepper Stadium in Penrith.

Mudgeeraba Football Club is keen to get all girls involved in the game.

“At Mudgeeraba, we want to create a supportive, aspirational environment where talented young women from all over the Coast and Northern NSW can come together to develop their skills secure that they are the highest priority of the club,” John White said.

“Football for girls and women is coming of age, with the fantastic performance of the Matildas on the world stage really making young women sit up and take notice.”
