Healesville’s new senior women’s team have started their first season undefeated in the AFL Outer East competition.
On Saturday 1 June they will face their biggest test yet when they host Monbulk at 9am.
Both teams are 5-0 heading into their round six clash, creating a potential grand final preview.
Healesville Football Netball Club President Greg Hay said it’s an exciting time for the club to have a senior women’s side up and running, but their top of the table clash will just be like any other game.
“The girls and the coaching staff are just treating this week the same as the next round… Win, lose or draw they’ll benefit from the game,” he said.
Healesville sits atop the ladder in the Deakin Uni Senior Women’s Outer East league with an impressive percentage of 643.75 per cent.
Monbulk are placed second with 313.25 per cent.
The new six team competition features Yarra Junction, Belgrave, Thornton-Eildon and Upwey Tecoma.
For those still wanting to join the team, the club welcomes women aged 18-40 to contact the club to inquire about joining prior to 30 June.
