While the Women's World Cup has been played, our local Association women are now looking toward bringing home a cup of a different sort.
Football NSW believe the State Cup displays all the hard work and efforts of each entrant that took part in what traditionally has been one of the toughest tournaments to participate in within NSW.
The State Cup Finals are to be played this Sunday 12th July, 2015 at Valentines Sports Park and representing the Eastern Suburbs Football Association will be Dunbar Rovers AAW Championship squad when they take on Wakehurst FC from Manly-Warringah at 2:00pm.
Dunbar Rovers have had some great wins along the way against Hurlstone Park, Miranda, Doonside, Manly and Sydney University however once again are expecting another tough game from a football district that has an excellent history of success in women's football.
We went straight to the source and asked Dunbar Rovers how they were perceiving the last challenge on the road to Valentines Sports Park.
David (Mini) Buck the coach of Dunbar Rovers AAW Championship said ''this would be a great challenge for the squad and each player is pumped to have made the final. The depth and quality of the ESFA AAW Championship over the years continues to improve and it showed again this year with four of the ESFA teams making the last 16 of the competition. A strong local competition can only put all teams in good stead leading into these big games. Dunbar will now attempt to bring the State Cup for ladies football to the Eastern Suburbs for the first time.''
From all the football family at ESFA we wish Mini and his ladies the best of luck in their match on Sunday and are proud of their achievement to reach the final.
