Western Australia’s Perth Strikers Masters win gold, again

The recent Pan Pacific tournament on the Gold Coast was one of many successful trips the over 30s women have made in the past 20 years. The team, varying in age and faces, has won more medals than any other WA sporting team. The last competition the ladies competed in was the Australian Masters in 2005 when they won bronze. The South West Stingers from the Bunbury area have also competed in the Masters competitions and individual players have competed as part of other state teams. Its all about participation not qualification.

Pan Pacifics are held every two years. The next Masters tournament is in Italy next year.

The squad included Sandra Szopski, Ali Butler, Mhairi Glover, Coach Robbie Glover, Mandy Laing, Di Reeves, Michelle Colebrook to name a few of the legends of Western Australian football.
