WA’s Girls Under 14 and Under 15 Gold Fields State Teams were presented with their 2018 kits on Monday, July 9, ahead of their trip to Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, next week for the Football Federation Australia’s National Youth Championships.

The tournament, which runs from July 16 to July 20, is an opportunity for players to potentially be identified by Football Federation Australia for future Young Matildas squads.

The teams accepted their kits in front of family and friends at The Rise in Maylands.

Football West Head of Development Jamie Harnwell said the Championships provide a great opportunity for players take their game to the next level.

“The National Youth Championships are a fantastic reward for the hard work that these girls have put into their training and games over the past few months,” he said.

“It is always an honour to represent your State, and I know both teams go across with a great deal of confidence in their ability to do well.”

WA’s Gold Fields State Under 14 side is coached by Faye Chambers with Gavin Sit assisting and former Matildas midfielder Collette McCallum managing the team.

The Gold Fields State Under 15 team is coached by Darren Young, assisted by India Joyce and managed by Lisa Manson.
