2017 Season Completed with Two Premierships
PREMIERS 2017 NCWL AND NFL
Our Reserves started the ball rolling with a very one sided Grand Final win against Benalla at Weeroona Oval in front of a massive home crowd. Our Firsts made it to the Grand Final and then had a hard fought 10 point win against Diamond Creek at Preston, which was brilliant after the heartache of last year. GO THUNDER!!
Bendigo Women’s Football Club is the leading provider of participation pathways for women’s football in central and northern Victoria.
The club committee, officials, coaches and player group is committed to providing a positive environment for girls and women that have the desire wish to develop their football skills and potentially play at the highest level within the AFL system.
The Club also encourages people that have the desire and skills to be a part of the player and game support team (assistant coaches, trainers, runners, boundary umpires, scorekeepers etc) to join us and contribute to our overall success.
For the 2017 football season, the Bendigo Women’s Football Club will field 2 teams;
Northern Football League (NFL)
The BWFC “Thunder” team will be the sole regional Victorian team competing in the 10 x team competition.
We were runners up in the 2016 grand final and are looking forward to playing in the expanded competition.
The 2017 playing season commenced on the 23rd of April 2017.
Northern Country Women's League (NCWL)
As a result of the unprecedented growth of female football, the AFL Goulbourn Murray and AFL Central Victoria leagues have joined forces to launch a women’s senior League in 2017.
The Bendigo Women’s Football Club has fielded a team in this regional league that is currently an 8 x team competition.
The 2017 playing season commenced on the 7th of May 2017.
