It’s getting close to the end of the Women’s Premier League season! Round 11 is on Sunday and, as was the case with Round 10, only two games will be played due to clashes with the Football NSW State Cup.
Third placed Manly Vale will be looking to put pressure on the top two with victory against Brookvale at Grahams Reserve. A repeat of Vale’s Round 4 triumph over Brookvale would see them close to within a point of Beacon Hill and Seaforth. As for Brookvale, victory is a must if they are to keep their finals hopes alive.
Pittwater RSL are also trying to close the gap to the top four – as things stand they are six points away from fourth placed Wakehurst. However, their next game is at home to Manly Allambie, who defeated Pittwater in the Challenge Cup and drew against them in Round 4, so we could see another close battle between these two sides.
We would also like to congratulate Beacon Hill and Seaforth on their progression to the All Age Women’s State Cup Final, a deserved reward for two teams that have played excellent football in 2023.
League leaders Beacon Hill were 2-0 winners over Northern Suburbs FA side Northbridge in the semi-finals, and Seaforth defeated Thirroul (Football South Coast) 3-0 in the final four, setting up a fascinating encounter between the top two MWFA Women’s Premier League sides in the State Cup Final.
The State Cup Final will be played at 3pm on Saturday, so if you’re in the area, head down to Cromer Park and watch two MWFA clubs battle for the State Cup title!
