WA Super League Series set to start

first_imgThe 2008/2009 Be Active Super League Series is set for a start this Sunday at WA’s newest Touch Football affiliate – the fast growing empire that is Brighton Touch.With the extension to the Mitchell Freeway also opening to coincide with the trip to Kingsbridge Park in Butler, 13 Open division teams from around the metropolitan area will launch their representative seasons.The past few weeks have been WA Touch Footballs version of “silly season”, with the rumour mill working overtime as everyone speculates over who will turn out for who in the coming season. We know that the Smith boys – Tynan and Nathan – return to their home at Fremantle after spending last season with Perth Brothers. Duncan Brown, Cam Adams and Trevor Twose also return to Tompkins Park after their success last season with Southern Men’s Open. Perhaps one of the biggest moves is that of Australian World Cup star Shelley Matcham, who after a long history with the Southern Women’s Open, joins defending State champions Northern in the Women’s Open.Then there are the newcomers. Hosts of the opening round, Brighton will be represented by both a Men’s and Women’s Open team in the competition, the star recruit being Barbarians and Australian squad member Angela Doyle, who leaves Northern Districts with a State Championships gold medal. United Galaxy will be represented by a Men’s Open team for the first time, with very few having previous representative playing history with any WA club.The import rule now in place also means we’re likely to see some other Touch Football champions in action around the metro area during the course of the Super League season, through the finals and into the State Championships.For further information, visit the website – www.superleagueseries.com.auThanks to Matt Bamford for providing the article content.last_img read more
