Woolgoolga Wildcats winning ways

July 28th, 2022

The Woolgoolga Wildcats have known only one way this season.

And that is to win.

The Wildcats sit undefeated at the top of the Women’s 2nd Division South competition, having won all 10 of their matches in dominant fashion.

The Wildcats women have scored 58 goals and conceded just once in a season of dominance.

Woolgoolga FC president Peter Knott explained the reasons behind their success.

“The majority of the team have been playing together for years, so they’ve got that bond and closeness,” he said.

“We have a bunch of younger players coming through learning from the older players, and we have a player like Kim Batty who has been playing for 25-30 years, and she provides a lot of experience and guidance for the younger players.

“They are strong in both attack and defence, and we pride ourselves on getting a clean sheet, as it doesn’t matter how many goals we score, as long as we keep them out, as all our players focus on getting back and helping out the keeper.”

“We have a good mix of youth and experience, and a good mix of players especially between midfielders and defenders.”

After dominating this year’s 2nd division, the Woolgoolga president entertained the possibility of stepping up to the Coastal League One Women competiton.

“The goal is hopefully next year, but if not, definitely the year after,” he said.

“We thought about it this year, but the girls couldn’t commit due to the travel as well as holidays and work.

“And for our 16 year old’s in their first year of senior football, going against the likes of Urunga and Boambee would have been tough.”
