TAFE NSW Summer Female Football figures for Eastern Suburbs Football Association have hit an all-time high with a 12% increase at its quality synthetic pitch namely Moore Park consolidating the sport’s popularity in the area.
An interesting statistic has been the increased growth of Eastern Suburbs Football Association’s Women’s competitions as Summer Football has attracted both existing winter footballers as well as new players to the sport.
Summer Female footballer Sinead Healy, who plays for the United Nations in the All Age Women’s competition, was one such player that has continued to play the world game all year round after finishing off the winter season playing in the local league with Randwick City FC.
“As a team, we’ve continued to play football via the Summer months and are proud members of Randwick City FC’s first ever women’s team formed this year.
“It’s been an unforgettable season as we won all 3 cups in ESFA’s Division 3 All Age Women’s competition, but we needed to do something else to keep us going.
“As a team who play in the winter months, we are enjoying the opportunity in playing Summer Football with the idea of sharpening our skills in the off-season. We also enjoy our teams banter on and off the pitch as well as using this format as an opportunity to catch up with friends.
“Our team “United Nations” is made up of players hailing from England, Ireland and Australia.
“We all support and encourage each other every single game and love that we can play football all year round.”
While Gabrielle Tremblay, another female footballer playing in the Summer ESFA competition for the Angels was also heaping praise on the exciting format played out at Moore Park.
“It’s a lot of fun, I enjoy playing Summer Football, especially when it rains, being a synthetic pitch at Moore Park matches are always on.
“We’re doing well thus far and have won all our matches, it’s been a lot of fun.
“The best aspect about it is that all the team are very passionate about football and that keeps us motivated to the point that we cannot wait for Thursday evenings to hit in getting our Summer Football fix.”
It has been an amazing season all round for the Eastern Suburbs Football Association following its successful Champion of Champions campaign where Dunbar Rovers took out the All Age Women’s category.
