Shooting stars – Jordy Maddalena, Coffs City United

April 12th, 2021

It’s been a white-knuckle ride right to the top of senior women’s football, and it’s one Jordy Maddalena still pinches herself about.
Having just turned 18, Jordy will this season captain the Coffs United side – a situation the talented centre defender finds surreal.
“I was vice-captain last year. It’s so crazy as I am still one of the younger players. It’s insane,” Jordy said.
Having played since the age of five, senior football came calling when she was 16.
“It (debuting in seniors) was the scariest thing. I thought there’s just such a high expectation,” Jordy said.
But stress less was the reality.
“The social aspect of senior football was a lot better and the encouragement from the older women was great – they were really welcoming,” she said.
That sisterhood and a club in Coffs United which puts an emphasis on female football should ensure Jordy’s continued progression is as ongoing as it is enjoyable.
