Our First Women’s Grand Final!

Waratah Blue played Barnies in the Grand Final going down 9-1.

For the first time in a few weeks we had subs as we welcomed back our injured and sick players.


A big thank you to Sarah for playing in goals.  She did an awesome job and saved many goals including a penalty shot.  Thank  you also to Julian for his goalkeeper coaching. 

It is very difficult to single out any one player  as each and everyone one of you put in 100% and should not be disappointed with the outcome of the game as you made the grand final.  


Thank you for embracing the 9 v 9 competition and making the season so enjoyable.  Thank you also to our loyal supporters and our photographer Bronwyn.


A huge thank you to Scott who has done an amazing job with both our women's teams this season.  We cannot do without volunteers like Scott who give up their time to attend training and games.  We are very appreciative of what he has achieved with both teams and to see the development of all players and especially our new players has been amazing.


Not forgetting our White team.  When two Waratah teams play each other for a spot in the grand final only one team can win and on this occasion White came second.  You are an amazing team who have supported all players, especially the junior girls, some of whom have never played soccer before this season. 


We should also mention that our junior girls have helped support both Blue and White during the season when players from both teams have been unable to play due to Covid,, sickness and injuries.


A special thank you to those who came to support Waratah Blue on Saturday.  This shows how supportive all players have been of each other despite being in different teams.


We are farewelling some of our players as they move on with their careers.  Thank you for being a Waratah.  Remember you will always be welcomed back should you ever return to Orange in the future.


Remember, if you wish to keep up your skills and fitness during summer, the ODFA Summer Comp will commence shortly.  Please consider getting a team of  friends, family or other players together and register a team.  The more teams the merrier.


We look forward to a bigger and brighter season in 2023 as Australia & New Zealand host the Women's World Cup.
