We are excited about having her on board in an official capacity for the upcoming season, especially the professional program she has planned with our coaches. Our cohesive coaching group will benefit greatly from her guidance, and I look forward to seeing them all work together to implement our 2019 program.

Martine’s willingness to impart her knowledge and experience by mentoring our coaches is testament to her dedication to not only the Subiaco Football Club, but also her ongoing commitment to developing and improving female footballers in our state”

We embark on a new League competition in 2019 and I am excited for newly appointed Head Coach, Simon Webb. He brings a fresh style of coaching with a collaborative approach. Simon has already established strong relationships within the group, having been previously involved at the club. He has an innovative mindset and extensive football background, and he is the perfect fit for the Subiaco Womens Football Club. We will once again create and implement a professional environment catering for all abilities and level of experience. I look forward to mentoring all of our newly appointed coaches in 2019”
