Under-9 Girls White

Coached By: Paul Ciavarella and Chris Michail

Team Sponsors: Fruit Master, Romina’s Dance

The smiles on the faces of our under-9 girls white team tells its own story.

These girls love their football - and that’s a good thing because as it turns out, they’re quite good at it too.

The girls have scored goals for fun this season and have even picked up a silver medal at the recent Point Cook tournament.

“Chris and myself are very proud of these girls,” co-coach Paul Ciavarella said.

“This is the second season we have had this group. During the off season we have being playing our girls in older age tournaments and pre-season friendlies, in which they have competed well.

“So far this season, we have started well and have scored 29 goals to the opposition two in the first five rounds.

“Of the 29 goals scored, we have had eight different goalscorers. 

“Two weeks ago I entered the girls in the Point Cook tournament. We played extremely well all day and made the grand final with a game to spare.

“In a hard-fought final against Glen Eira we finished nil all. We went down on penalties 4-3. So 2019 is going well and looking forward to the rest of the season.”
