Aussie Women’s Squad hit for six as Footscray players dominate selection

The Australian Senior Women’s Squad has been announced with six players coming from the Footscray Lacrosse Club.

Abbie Burgess, Verity Clough, Stella Justice Allen, Rebecca Lane, Theadora Kwas and Sarah Mollison have been selected to the 20 woman squad that will fly to Europe in June.

The team will take on the unusual task of competing in two tournaments; first the FIL Women’s World Cup in England, then onto the International World Games in Poland.

Footscray and Australia midfielder, Abbie Burgess, said having such a large Footscray contingent is from the effort from the whole club.

“It’s a credit to our committee, our coaches and our senior players across a number of teams.”

The ladies will compete at the world cup from July 13-22 and then in the World Games from July 25-29.
