Women’s football is back! The Women’s Challenge Cup kicks off this Sunday, 20th March, as Cromer Park 5 hosts back-to-back round 1 fixtures.
The annual knock-out competition sees clubs nominate their highest graded team to compete for the title.
This year 12 clubs, eight premier league and four AL1 teams, have entered in the hope of being named the Challenge Cup Champions.
Beacon Hill and Mosman will open the action at 10am on Sunday, with the two premier league sides fighting to stay in the competition it will be an intense opener for the competition.
The following two matches see two of our AL1 teams step up to the plate to compete against premier league sides.
Narrabeen will play-off against BTH’s premier league team at midday, followed by Brookvale who will take on Forest Killarney AL1’s.
Both matches will test the teams as Narrabeen and Forest Killarney look to bring the underdog story to life.
Whilst Manly Allambie, the 2021 Challenge Cup and competition champions will be watching from the sideline to see whether they meet Brookvale or Forest Killarney in round 2.
The headline match will close the day with a 4pm kick off when Manly Vale and Seaforth go head-to-head.
The 2021 season saw Seaforth finish in second place with Manly Vale only one point behind when the competition was abandoned.
The second last match of the season saw Manly Vale defeat Seaforth 1-0 and so Seaforth will be looking for revenge this Sunday.
It will be a great welcome back to football at Cromer Park 5 as the teams prepare for their 2022 season which kicks off on Sunday, 3rd April.
