The Beaudesert Kingfishers Senior Women’s team are set for an exciting season, with eight new players bringing a combination of youth, vibrance and additional skills to the team.
Keith Gee, who coaches the team with co-coach Rob Brown, said the women got off to a great start with a 26-4 win against South Inala Warriors at a gala game on 1 April.
“We’ve got a lot of new players, a lot of youth come in,” said Keith.
The new players have stepped up from junior grades to play with the Kingfishers’ senior women, with many joining the Club from other areas.
“They’ve come from all around, not just from our junior club.”
“We’ve got 23 registered players in the team this year. Some used to play for us as juniors, some have friends who played here or have had a few years off and are returning to the game.”
“There is a lot of excitement, youth obviously brings enthusiasm and speed, because they’re younger.”
The 2023 SE Women’s Community – South season started on 14 April but the Kingfisher senior women’s team had a bye in the first round.
They are eager to start the season with an away game against Carina on 22 April at 10.30am at the Carina home ground.
In 2022, Carina and Kingfisher women’s teams finished equal second on the ladder, which should make the opening game of the Kingfishers’ season one not to be missed.
The Kingfisher women will have their first home game at Willis Park against Rochedale Tigers on Saturday 29 April at 5.30pm.
Round Four of the competition will see the women play Easts Mt Gravatt Eagles at Ian Clarkson Field in Mt Gravatt.
Beaudesert Kingfishers will host a gala day in early June at Willis Park, Beaudesert.
