Northern NSW Football would like to congratulate Adamstown Rosebud Junior Football Club on becoming the 2016 Herald Women’s Premier League (WPL) Premiers.
After an unstoppable start to the season, Rosebud were undefeated for 15 of the 21 competition rounds securing an eight-point lead at the top of the ladder after round 19 of the competition.
With a game in hand before they go into a bye prior to the Semi-Finals, the Rosebud Women have the statistics to back them as the 2016 table leaders.
Having two players in the top 5 goal scorers list, scoring 57 goals in total whilst conceding only 17; the Rosebud Women have taken an unassailable lead on the top of the ladder with 43 points.
Out of the last five Herald WPL seasons, including this year, Adamstown have been crowned on three occasions as the Premiers, with Merewether taking the honours in 2015 and Lake Macquarie City in 2012.
The Rosebud’s have also reached the Grand Final three times out of the past four years, having won twice and going down 5-2 in 2014 to an Emerging Jets side.
This year the girls will have their eyes on the Grand Final trophy once again as they aim to secure the ‘double’ and become the 2016 Grand Final Winners.
