Fitzroy Football Club: Great football, Great community, Great culture.

Hipster Cup moves into a brand new era


It might have had just a short life, but already the Hipster Cup has taken on some significant meaning and will feature in the very first round of the VAFAs Wilson Womens Premier competition.

VAFA Foundation Clubs and local rivals, Fitzroy-ACU and the Brunswick Renegades will meet in Round 1 at the Gillon Oval on Sunday 9 April, meeting for the second week in a row and this time for the trophy.

The brainchild of the Renegades, the trophy between the local teams is held by Fitzroy-ACU (see Alice and Alexa right from 2016) who plan to keep it under new coach Mick Symons.

In last weeks practice match, the Roy Girls looked pretty slick and wayward goal kicking aside would have had a comfortable victory over the Renegades. This week they know a lot more is on the line and are very, very keen to get off to a winning start in the new era of VAFA womens footy.

And according to the new captain of the womens team, we have the winning formula - Esther Harris's homemade vegan cashew cheese, Emilie Goegan's hair and those incredible Roygirl beanies (not to mention the can play a bit of footy). The Roygirls are confident they can keep the Cup at Fitzroy. Well have to trust them on that formula!
