Fitzroy-ACU stars on show with the VAFA


Fitzroy-ACU squad members Emilie Goegan and Tess Cosgrave have told the VAFA world just whats so good about Fitzroy as they fronted up for interviews at the recent VAFA media day.

Firebrand Emilie certainly has a bit of the white line fever and identifies SKOB Saints and AJAX as key rivals for Fitzroy-ACU as they enter their first season as a Foundation Club in the VAFA's Wilson Premier Division.

It was so good to hear Tess talk about being made welcome in the Fitzroy familyand how the boys had been pushing them to work harder during the preseason.

Take a look at our Roy Girls doing us proud ahead of the inaugural VAFA womens competition.
