Here is the dedication to and history of everything girls and women’s football in Western Australia, from Rosabrook in the 1950’s, after football established itself in the group settlement areas of our South West, to Azzurri in the City suburbs of Perth, the heart of Italian passion. See it gain momentum through the School competitions, State representative teams, Perth Glory Women, competing in the National League and representing the whole of Western Australia, and honour Administrators, Australian Representatives and those that just never stop giving to the game they love. History is being made every day we live and breathe it, it never stops.
