One of the oldest surviving clubs in Western Australia not only continues to grab success in the big leagues but was now recruiting more talent to form a junior girls only team in 2020.

The Queens Park Football Club started in 1909 with women’s teams on and off throughout the years.

Women’s Queens Park football club manager Lynda Woodfin said the club started up the ladies team again in 2000 and it has steadily improved over the last 19 years.

“They have become the most successful women’s team south of the river, winning the premier league twice out of the three last seasons,” she said.

“But finished on a high by winning the top four final.”

Ms Woodfin said the club was planning to recruit as many girls and women as possible as they had officially appointed Blake Sadler as the new coach and Lindsay Aldrick as junior technical director.

“We are looking for expressions of interest from young girls for this 14s team and would be happy to hear from any girls over six-years-old wanting to play,” she said.

“We are a club that boasts many talented players who play in our premier teams that have played for state school girls competitions, state teams and of course Glory and many of the girls are keen to help develop young players.”

The club started last year with the Miniroos team and the under 12s but for the senior women’s team and under 23s to play in the National Premier League, the club needs to form the juniors only girls team.
