The next round of MWFA Women’s Premier League is split over Sunday and Wednesday because four of our teams have Football NSW State Cup commitments on the weekend. It’s an exciting time for the competition as there is only a one point gap between the teams in first and third.
Only one WPL game will be played on Sunday afternoon and it takes place at Grahams Reserve. Brookvale and Manly Allambie are trying to end winless streaks in the league – the top four isn’t too far away for both of them, so there is plenty of motivation.
Then on Wednesday, new league leaders Beacon Hill travel to Warriewood Valley Sportsground for a meeting with Pittwater. Beacon Hill are well aware of how important this match is as goal difference is the only thing separating them from second placed Seaforth.
Third placed Manly Vale won big last weekend and could even move into first place if other results go their way. Their next task is a trip to Abbott Road for a clash with Curl Curl, who will be looking for a win to consolidate fourth place in the league.
The other Wednesday fixture is a rematch of last month’s dramatic Women’s Challenge Cup Final. Wakehurst are looking to jump into the top four, while Seaforth know that victory could see them move back to the top of the table if Beacon Hill drop points.
We would also like to wish the best of luck to Beacon Hill, Manly Vale, Pittwater RSL and Seaforth for Sunday’s Football NSW State Cup quarter finals.
