Getting the band back together at Dorrigo

March 24th, 2021

The geographically highest club in North Coast Football is ready to scale the dizzy heights in 2021.
Dorrigo Highlanders secretary Becky Wykes said they expect to field Miniroos teams in the Under 9s and 11s, as well as their famed Over 30s women’s Blackbutts outfit.
“Numbers are on a par with last year and we’re going okay for a little club,” Becky said.
“We’ve got a lot of younger ones coming through and that’s promising.”
Considerable interest will centre on the Dorrigo Blackbutts after their fairytale run to last season’s grand final.
They’re the local equivalent of the Traveling Wilburys – with players drawn from all parts of the Mid North Coast, with a core of Dorrigo-based members.
With COVID restrictions running rampant in 2020 – a number of players in this team had to train on their own, coming together only on match days.
It was a massive credit to all concerned that they won their way through to the Over 30s women’s decider, where they were edged 2-1 by Boambee Eagles.
“We should have a similar side this year with a few more Dorrigo ladies hopefully,” Becky said.
