THE Boambee Eagles were a force to be reckoned with during last year’s women’s first division competition.
The Eagles had a magnificent season, winning 13 out of 14 games on their way to winning the minor premiership.
Now the Eagles plan to take part in the new Coastal League One Women competition which is set to kick off next month.
Boambee are one of four North Coast Football teams who have confirmed their entry in the new women’s competition, which also includes Coffs City United, Urunga, and Sawtell.
Potential clubs from Kempsey and Port Macquarie are also in the mix to feature in the new competition.
Boambee Eagles coach Neil Witherdin welcomed the concept of the new competition.
“We just want a good, strong competition so that players have something to strive for,” he said.
“And we don’t mind playing against some different teams.”
After a dominant season in local competition, the Eagles coach shared what made his team special.
“They work hard and enjoy being together as they are all friends,” he said.
“They play for each other and they enjoy each other’s company, and they are special as human beings and just really good girls.”
The new Coastal League One Women competition is expected to have 6 to 8 clubs and play 20 or more rounds before finals take place in September, with the season kicking off in early April.
