The Old Carey Women’s team have come a long way since half a dozen ladies came down to the first training in November 2016.  Since then we have recruited hard, trained hard and worked hard to develop our skills across the board. Moreover we have come together as a group, connections re-established and new friendships formed. Our regular warm up and skills session with the men’s teams helped us accelerate our football and team development. How could it not? Being amongst that throng of noise and intensity!

So we assembled on Saturday afternoon, flush with nerves, anticipation and pride. As a group we committed to help each other out through shared voices, shepherds and gang tackles and agreed that mistakes didn’t matter. We felt ready, or at least ready enough to represent the club.

As it turned out we were ready; our willingness to run hard, tackle hard and force the ball forward rewarded us with a four goal to one first half and after a quiet third term we rammed home three unanswered goals in the last to emphatically seal the deal. One amazing team goal came from the back pocket when Maddie Webster won the ball from a one on two contest, then drove the ball to the half-back line where three or four clean possessions saw us finish with a cracking goal from Matilda

What a fantastic day! A day to remember.

Getting us on the park for our first game was an incredible team effort from Fothers, Paul the President, Coach Em, Team Manager Kiara, the entire men’s playing group, coaching team, and with a special thanks to Braddles, Issy our publicist, Gus the club’s registrar and Andrew Clark, President of the very supportive OCGA.
