2016 was an extremely exciting and challenging year for the Claremont Women’s Football Club. The decision to submit 2 teams in the WAWFL competition after a very successfully 1 team campaign in 2015 was not made lightly. We knew that the year would be a difficult one. Despite regularly running 80 minutes without a bench, the players stepped out on that field each week and gave a hard-hitting and competitive match. The tenacity, courage and sportswomenship these players showed week-in and week-out is admirable. The Piranha’s were not playing for glory, but for the future development of the club. The legacy of this club goes to the selflessness of the women who played in this 2016 season. I am extremely proud to be President of a playing group who can hold their heads-high, support and encourage each other despite a season of loses. Well done Piranhas.
Credit to our most successful team this year; our Youth Girls. 2016 saw a lot of fresh faces and exciting talent join the team. The Youth team relished the opportunity to play finals and we are all looking forward to future season with the talent developing in the youth and progressing to the seniors. The CWFC committee would like to acknowledge the dedication of our Coaching Group and our Sponsors.
Without the support of the following people and businesses, community football cannot exist. Our deepest gratitude
