Skye’s no limit at Westlawn

March 31st, 2021

It’s a cliche with truth – need a job done, give it to a busy person. Meet Skye Sear, secretary at Westlawn Tigers.
Passionate about her work with a local not-for-profit Neighbourhood Centre, Skye is a leader in that sector, serving at State administrative level.
And when she’s not caught up in board meetings, it’s football through and through.
Westlawn is one big cat too.
“I think we were the fourth biggest club in the zone last year – fielding 6s through to the senior division,” Skye said.
“This year we’ll have two women’s teams whereas last year we had only one. A Westlawn v Westlawn grand final – that’s our dream.”
Skye said the club was especially proud of its innovative Tiger Cubs program – run in partnership with North Coast Futsal and South Services Gunners.
This is tailored to 3 to 5-year-olds and is already reaping dividends.
“We see ourselves as the family club and it’s all about engaging with younger players. And our retention rate is high,” Skye said.
While that’s a focus on the foundations, a measure of Westlawn’s strength was there to witness at the pointy end – with the Tigers involved in all three senior grand finals in 2020.
