VAFA releases women's draw


Fitzroy-ACU Women 1 heads into the full draw of the first Wilson Womens Premier division undefeated as the VAFA released its first full series of divisions and draws this week following the grading rounds.

The full draw comes into effect this weekend.

Following its comfortable win over Ajax on Sunday, Fitzroy-ACU will be joined in Premier Division by Caufield Grammarians, Marcellin, Melbourne Uni, Old Trinity Grammarians and Old Xaverians, along with SKOB Saints and Brunswick Renegades. Ajax asked to be dropped down into a lower division.

This Saturday, the Fitzroy-ACU Women 1 will face SKOB Saints for the second time in three weeks at Ramsden Street Oval at 2pm. They will be buoyed by their recent win over the Saints, but mindful that their opposition finished strongly in the wet at Vic Park in their recent meeting.

After three very hard weeks, with several players who were playing Australian football for the first time, our Women 2 team has been placed in VAFAs Development Division 4.

The attitude of the team has been nothing short of fantastic as theyve faced some very experienced sides, including Melbourne University and West Brunswick. On Saturday there were scenes of great jubilation as the first goal of the season was scored by Tess McDonald.

The experience of playing against higher ranked teams will stand them in good stead as they start the season with the Brunswick Renegades (2), Bulleen Templestowe, Canterbury, De La Salle, Hawthorn, SKOB Saints (2), South Melbourne Districts, St Marys Salesian (2) and Swinburne University.
