Burbank Oval to Host VFL Women's Match



Williamstown Football Club is excited to be supporting the Victorian Football League Women's competition in 2016, by hosting the clash between VU Western Spurs and Geelong at Burbank Oval as a curtain-raiser to the Seagulls' clash with North Ballarat on Sunday July 3.


Williamstown CEO Jason Reddick was thrilled that the club would be hosting the VFL Women's league match, which has had a successful start to its inaugural season.


"Through this initiative we are delighted to connect with the VU Western Spurs team, who are the only western suburbs-based team competing in the state league women's competition," said Reddick.


VU Western Spurs senior coach Debbie Lee was just as excited about the opportunity to get involved with the VFL's reigning premiers.


"It's a great opportunity for us to play at a VFL venue," said Lee.


"It's a chance for us to get some exposure to the greater footy community and it will be a really competitive match, so to have the support of the Williamstown Football Club, it's just great."


Lee also had a message for the Williamstown supporters.


"To the Williamstown supporters, come down and see a really good brand of football, women's footy is taking off and if you haven't seen a game, we'd love to see you there! We'd welcome and love your support!"


Williamstown Football Club also shares these comments and invites all Seagulls supporters to get down early to Burbank Oval on July 3 and support the inaugural season of the Victorian Football League Women's competition.
