TAREE Wildcats will host a visit from two Newcastle Jets W-league players this Saturday.

Sophie Nenadovic and Brooke Miller  will be attending the Wildcats’ home ground Omaru from around midday and will host a training session for players during the afternoon.

Wildcats spokesperson, Michael Wallace, said the visit would help boost interest in football but particularly women’s football.

“Taree is well known as a sports loving area, so having two members of the W-League competition in town for the afternoon is a major boost to football,” Wallace said.

“During the afternoon, there will be a chance to grab some autographs and chat with the players before we host some training sessions for the kids.

“These training sessions will suit all ages and experience so anyone can come along and get involved in these events.

“Importantly, the afternoon is not just confined to Taree Wildcats players and is open to all clubs in the area.”

Wallace said the training sessions would be tailored to suit particular age groups, which would help cover all skill levels.

To help spread the message, Wallace said local schools had also been invited to attend the event.

The visit has been timed to coincide with the annual football registration days across the Football Mid North Coast zone.

“Specifically, this is a great opportunity for our young, existing or potential female players, volunteers, coaches or match officials to engage with the W-League Jets team members,” Wallace said.

“The Taree Wildcats believes this visit will have a very positive effect on increasing interest, passion and long term love of the game as well as providing access to high profile athletes who other members of the football family can relate and aspire to emulate.”

Sophie Nenadovic and Brooke Miller will be at Taree Wildcats’ home ground Omaru from 12.30pm to around 3pm.
