Feather in the cap for Boambee women

August 12th, 2021

The Eagle has landed – and safe in the nest is the 1st Division Women’s premiership for the top team across the regular season.
It caps what has been a year-long ding-dong battle between the traditional competition heavyweights in Boambee and Urunga.
The Eagles bested the Raiders 4-1 on Saturday to set-up an unassailable lead.
Outgoing Boambee president Fiona Clancy is thrilled for the squad.
“It was a great game and I am probably even more so pleased this year as they’ve had three players out with long term injuries, and to be fair I understand Urunga also had a key player out,” she said.
In a significant fillip for the competition, it’s understood next year’s 1st Division Women’s could feature three additional clubs.
Coffs United, Sawtell and Orara have expressed interest – and if everything gets across the line that would deliver an improved player experience in 2022 with a seven-team format.
“That would make it more exciting. The benchmark is Urunga, but having more teams would be good for the competition,” Fiona said.
