The Great Southern Football League Women’s competition will grow in 2018 with an increase in teams from four to eight. Four new clubs will include Yankalilla, Goolwa/Port Elliot, Mount Compass and McLaren.
They will join Strathalbyn, Victor Harbor, Encounter Bay and Willunga.
The eight team competition will have 220 players to more than 500 players and will start on March 18. It will be a 10 week competition for premiership points and then a grand final.
Full GSFLW training will take place on February 11 and is the stepping stone to the South Australian National Football League.
The GSFLW promotes its elite and promising talent to follow the pathway through the local league and onto South Adelaide and Glenelg.
The GSFLW will have three levels of competition – under 13, under 16 and open. The Great Southern Football League is recognising the importance of women’s football with the appointments of Grant Levy and Andrew Batten on its executive.
