Great day on the turf

Our first home game of the season on another hot day (seriously it’s supposed to be Autumn). The Parky oval was buzzing with excitement and lots of activity during set-up.

To quote coach Jamie ” the girls were amazing with only three on the bench, everyone became their own driver on field, this week was the most difficult to pick award winners. “

The backline was tight, the mids ran like their life depended on it and the forwards well they had a great time with Rachel and Bill kicking 3 goals each, Kay chipped in with 2 of her own to help us to the win 54 – 8.

The team take recovery seriously, whether that be a swim in the pool, ice bath, hike through the hills or in the case of our masters their recovery involves playing another game today in either footy or cricket.

Family gets the win…..

We are a close knit bunch at Hills Rangers, often describing those within the club as family. However yesterday our women’s team took that to a whole new level..

First up there’s our Coach Jamie, who is supported by dad Kingy as the Assistant Coach, mum Gail as Team Manager on game day and last but not least wife Kayla, who plays for the team.

Next up is Jessie who is one of our Co-captains, supported by our star photographer Harper and son Olleigh these kids are always supporting and helping out on game day.

Then there is our President Lou, who roped her twin sister Leanne into playing to give us extra numbers. I can only imagine the confusion that would’ve caused the opposition with the identical twins running around.

The strong sense of community and family are what keeps our club going.

Saturday is the day…..

Our women’s team have been training hard, along with their standard training which a little birdy tells me is pretty intense, there has been quite a few players keen to do an extra 5km run just for fun ….

On Saturday they take on the Canning South Perth Tigers (details below) lets get as many people as we can wearing orange and grey behind them.

WA All Stars…….

Wouldn’t it be great to see one of the great taggers take to the paddock again? Or perhaps hear the roar for Pavlich as he lines up for goal.

Well now you can and even better it is all for a great cause…

Our WA All Stars featuring the likes of Crowley, Pavlich, Cook, Jetta, Mzungu, Wellingham, Braun, Grover, Rance, Robertson, Johnson, Brown and Ellard just to name a few are taking to the field on February 17th at Leederville Oval 2pm to raise funds and awareness for Mental Health and the WA Football Community.
