The Wanderers Westfield W-League team will be looking to finish their season on a high when they visit the Newcastle Jets tonight.
The Red & Black were beaten 5-1 by Perth Glory last Thursday night at Marconi Stadium in a game where they were competitive for the most part.
Wanderer Elizabeth Addo was outstanding again with her neat dribbling whilst Erica Halloway and Kylie Ledbrook provided plenty of creativity in the middle of the park.
It wasn’t enough for the Red & Black with Glory proving to have too much class in the end, a brutal reminder for the Wanderers for what it will take to match it with one of the best team’s in the Westfield W-League competition.
The Wanderers have shown plenty of poise this season and will be looking to now start building momentum for the 2019/20 Westfield W-League season.
Whilst Dan Barrett’s side have struggled to meet their expectations, the experiences they’ve gained this season will be invaluable moving forward.
Many youngsters have risen to the occasion, especially Courtney Nevin who has become a stalwart in the Wanderers defence.
The 16-year-old has proven time and time again that she is reliable at the back and will be one to keep an eye on in the upcoming National Premier League season.
The Jets go into tomorrow night’s match playing for pride as they are also out of finals contention.
Newcastle defeated Adelaide 2-1 last Friday night thanks to a stoppage time winner by Pana Petratos, denting Adelaide’s finals series hopes.
The Jets have been hampered in the back half of the season with key players Emily van Egmond, Cortnee Vine and Katie Stengel out with injury.
To add to their woes, Matilda Larissa Crummer has also been confirmed to have broken her leg in their most recent match against Adelaide.
Despite this, the Jets still have one of the strongest squad’s in the competition with Hannah Brewer and Claire Wheeler finding form at the back of the season.
With nothing to lose for either side, it promises to be an entertaining fixture at No.2 Sportsground in Newcastle.
