Football Queensland has strengthened the women’s game with the appointment of Kerry Hammersley as Female Participation Officer.
The Matildas are the toast of Australian sport at the moment, with the side’s meteoric rise up the official FIFA rankings to number four. Combine that with a side full of talent and personality, and it’s a recipe for continual success as the next generation has a strong standard to look up to.
rebel Female Football Week is a chance to celebrate those who have the drive and passion to push the women’s game forward. One academic in particular, has made it his goal to recognise the history, and the women, who have laid the foundations for today’s success.
In the first instalment of a series of articles to celebrate Female Football Week, Football Queensland focuses on Brisbane Roar W-League premiership winning head coach, Melissa Andreatta, and her journey from netballer to footballer.
