Roy Girls ready to rumble

03-Aug-2018

Freshened up from the timely final round bye, the Fitzroy-ACU Reserves Women will head into their first ever finals series brimming with confidence.

The final round results meant Saturday’s opponent Caulfield Grammarians finished just 2.98 per cent ahead and as the third-placed side choose the venue.

Semi Final 1 of the Premier Women’s Reserves competition will be played at Glenhuntly Oval at 11.20am on Saturday. With the senior and reserves men’s teams having the bye this weekend, there should be a big Fitzroy contingent along to check out the action.

The Fields are a tough team to match at their large, sloping ground but the Roy Girls have done it before.

In their first meeting at Ramsden Street back in April, Caufield was a comfortable winner. By the time the teams met again in June, Fitzroy-ACU won by over four goals….at Glenhuntly Oval.

This is a team which has improved enormously over the course of this first season with coach Simon Jackson and there is nothing to fear in this final.

“In many ways it’s business as usual and they should continue to play the way they’ve been playing,” Simon said. “But it is a final, so we know the tempo lifts and the game goes up a notch because there is more at stake. We really need to be switched on right from the start.

“The team has been training with good energy which we can take into the game.

“We’ve talked about the fact that not everyone gets these opportunities – finals don’t happen often – so we need to be ready and make the most of the opportunity,” Simon said.

It’s all or nothing. Go Roy Girls.
