Collie Eagles Women’s Team Withdraw

In some unfortunate news, the long awaited return of the Collie Eagles Women’s team into the Optus SWFL Women’s competition, has not come to fruition with the Club unable to get sufficient numbers to field a team over a 22 week competition.

The SWFL were officially notified at 6.30pm on Sunday evening that Collie were unable to get sufficient players to field a team that would be  able to play week in week out.  The team had 18 registered players, some of which will transfer to other clubs in time for the start of the season.

Collie officials “are very disappointed”, but are hopeful that a team will eventually return to the SWFL competition into the future.

All fixture times involving Collie teams have been amended.  Unfortunately the new PlayHQ system does not allow for the removal of the Collie Womens team, as they season is already active, and they will be listed as having a bye every week of the season.
