Women’s EDFL fixture released


Keilor Park will play in division 1 and Taylors Lakes in division 2 in this season’s Essendon District Football League women’s season.

Following the recent announcement of the premier division fixture, which included Keilor and Hillside, the remaining structure for the women’s competition was unveiled.

This season there will be premier division, division 1 and division 2, while for the first time there will be a reserves competition.

All round one matches in the women’s EDFL will kick off on Saturday April 13.

Keilor Park which has restarted its women’s program this season, requested to be placed straight into division 1 on the back of some good recruiting. The Devils will start their season against Airport West.

Burnside Heights, Greenvale and Tullamarine remain in that division, while Strathmore has been relegated from premier division and Airport West promoted from division 2.

In round one, there will be a rematch of the second semi final between Greenvale and Burnside Heights where the Jets narrowly defeated the Bears in a thriller, although this time it will be played at Greenvale’s home ground.

Another notable fixture in this division is the ANZAC Day clash between Tullamarine and Keilor Park, the stand alone match in this division on the public holiday.

There are a number of interesting match ups in division 2 as four of the eight teams in the competition will be new additions this season.

Glenroy, Roxburgh Park, East Sunbury and Taylors Lakes will all be aiming to make their mark as new teams in division 2.

For Taylors Lakes it will be the first time its had a standalone women’s side after having a combined side with Avondale Heights previously.

Taylors Lakes will start its season against East Sunbury, which is fielding a side for the first time.

The Sunbury Lions, Sunbury Kangaroos, Pascoe Vale and Coburg Districts make up the rest of that competition.

Essendon Doutta Stars, Oak Park, Aberfeldie, Westmeadows, Moonee Valley and Hillside have sides in the reserves competition.
