Woopi, it’s time to roll

March 22nd, 2021

Wonderful Woolgoolga is champing at the bit for the 2021 North Coast Football season.
The big club which enjoyed so much success in the tempestuous year just past is looking forward to even sunnier prospects.
“After last year we’ve basically exploded with some 380 registrations from 6s through to seniors. The women have all come back with around 30 registered which will give us two teams,” club president Peter Knott said.
“I think we’ve got a 28 per cent female participation rate which is really good. Our numbers overall are probably going to be above 2019 so that’s an excellent result.”
Woolgoolga was one of the strongest across 2020, with a motza of their sides punching through to the grand finals.
“It was a good year all things considered,” Peter said.
“Some players chose not to take the risk (in the COVID uncertainty), but they’ve all come back this year.”
Like all clubs, the Big Wet has disrupted Woolgoolga’s preseason.
“We’ll have to send the boys to the beach or the gym,” Peter said.
“You just have to adapt preparation. But we’re in good stead for the season and looking forward to the start.”
