It’s with great pleasure that the Penguin Football Club can announce that 2018 Captain and Best & Fairest winner, Lila Wijesingha-Frohmader has been appointed as the coach of the Senior Women for 2019.
The Penguin Football Club embrace Lila’s passion and drive to grow the club and the excitement she has for our club.
The Penguin Football Club alongside Lila will work to provide all women and girls every opportunity to succeed in their footballing endeavours and encourage female participation to increase in football at our club. Lila has highlighted her desire to strengthen the link between juniors and seniors and create a smoother transition for the younger members of our club. To do this, Lila’s senior group will commence pre-season training with the younger girls of our club (under 17 youth women) to encourage them to continue to play football and develop their skills, while making lifelong friendships.
Stay tuned for further details on when this will be occurring.
We would really like to thank and acknowledge outgoing coach Bruce Howard for his fantastic service over the past two seasons and Mick Marshall for filling in for the second half of this year.
