Ocean Grove senior women’s footballers have urged the local sporting community to get behind the push to field a side for the 2020 season.
The Grubbers began their preseason training on Wednesday 20 November which is focused on fun, friendship and participation.
Ocean Grove unveiled its new senior women’s co-coaches Tanya Taylor, also a player, and Glenn McManus in early November.
New Ocean Grove senior women’s coordinator Darren Taylor said four 90-minute sessions would take place on Wednesdays across November and December at Bellarine Secondary College’s Ocean Grove campus.
Up to 10 women’s footballers trained in sunny conditions for the club’s second preseason training session on 27 November.
Training sessions run from 6pm to 7.30pm.
“We’re certainly looking forward to providing opportunities for women to play,” Taylor told the Voice.
“We are having four training sessions in the lead up to Christmas to try and promote (the women’s game in the region).
“The president Peter (Smith), he is right behind the women’s program and we are trying to get as many players as we can so we can launch into the season.”
The Grubbers fielded a senior women’s team in 2018 and in 2019.
