Members statements – Sunbury Lions Women’s Football Club

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) — I rise today to speak about the sporting success of two of Sunbury’s football teams.

Sunday, 30 August, saw the Sunbury Lions Women’s Football Club victorious in the 2015 grand final against the Melton Central Football Netball Club. The Lions won in a low-scoring affair, 3.9 (27) to 1.2 (8), at City Oval.

Simone Craige was named best on ground, while captain Natasha Hardy was influential in her return from a broken wrist and kicked two of the side’s three goals.

The Lions were the best team in the competition all year.

They went through the home-and-away season unbeaten from 15 matches and finished with a massive 1230.1 percentage points. I congratulate Lions coach Kerry Saunders, team captain Natasha Hardy and all the players and supporters.
