ACU Game: Women in Footy Lunch - Saturday 25 August

Date: 25-Aug-2018


Each year the Fitzroy Women in Footy lunch gets bigger and bigger and this year a classy panel will take a look at the experience of and pathways for female footballers at several levels of the game.

The pre-game lunch on 25 August at Brunswick Street is a key feature of the ACU Game before Fitzroy takes on PEGS in the final home and away game of the season.

Hosted by award-winning sports journalist Megan Hustwaite, AFLW’s Kaitlyn Ashmore (Lion turned Roo) makes a return to the panel, while Debbie Lee Medallist, who played the 2016 season with Fitzroy-ACU, Ash Riddell, and Roy turned Pie leadership group member, Hillary Grubb, make a return to BSO to talk about their paths to the AFLW and VFLW respectively. The VAFA’s Manager of Women’s Football, Shona MacInnes, will also make her first appearance to talk about what’s next in our own fast-growing women’s competition.

The make up of the panel will allow us to explore the current state of play at the VAFA, VFLW and AFLW and potential pathways for talented female footballers coming up through the ranks.

Date: Saturday 25 August
Location: Community Rooms, Brunswick Street Oval
Time: 11.45 (for a 12 pm start)
