Women’s football going backwards 100 miles an hour , wake up FFT a 6 team league is all this state can sustain
This weekend against 3 of the power houses prove that , wake up before we die just like the statewide football is doing.

A sure sign that the same old development programs are still substandard, TIS or NTC or NDC, doesn't matter, its not working or ever has!

sadly a year off football will not do the girls any good, and some may not return to their previous level of football. Sad situation.

For Calder United in these 3 games

Big difference in class.
