Woolgoolga women up for the ask

June 16th, 2021

As one of the big clubs in North Coast Football, Woolgoolga don’t do things by halves.
Aspiration is hard-wired into their jerseys, and nowhere is it more evident than in their top-tier women’s team.
Last year, thanks COVID, the senior women reluctantly took a rest because of the circling uncertainty.
This season, they’ve doubled-down and gone up to 1st Division – a four-team elite anchored by perennial powerhouses in Urunga and Boambee.
It speaks volumes of Woopi’s mindset that rather than shy from the challenge, they’ve embraced it.
Club president Peter Knott coaches the top women’s side and is impressed by their character.
“The season has been very up and down (result-wise) but they have a never-say-die attitude,” Peter said.
In a recent stoush with Boambee, Woopi trailed 6-1, before clawing it back to 6-3. In the subsequent encounter, it was just 2-0 to the Eagles.
Little by little, step by step.
“They just keep working for one another and we’ve got a lot of younger girls who have come into the side this year,” Peter said.
“If you want to be the best, you’ve got to play against the best. My own daughter is in the WPL in Newcastle for exactly that reason.”
Peter said his charges were able to train only once a week – “but the majority of them go on their morning runs and are fit so they’re ready to go come Saturday”.
“We have our own goals of getting to a level that we’ll be competitive.”
As the adage goes, a turtle moves forward only when it sticks its head out.
