“Interest in women and girls’ football within Northern NSW has grown by 4.66% from 2017 and 2018 and is highlighted the support being provided by the football community across the week”, said Haynes.

“Clubs across Northern NSW are hosting a variety of events to celebrate from gala day’s for girls and boys, networking events, club BBQ’s, coaching certificates, referee training and much more.

“I encourage everyone to get involved!” said Haynes.

NNSWF is hosting a Networking Evening on Friday 28 June featuring guest speakers:
