Photos supplied / JLSPhotographs.com By Daniel Silverton nEW and young faces dominate Fencibles Unit- ed’s premier women’s football team this season. Only a handful of players are returning from the side which placed sixth in last year’s Lotto Northern Region Foot- ball League (NRFL) women’s premier division. The team also has a new coach in Angela Wallbank, who is making her debut at the top club level. “The face of the team has changed considerably from last year,” Wallbank told the Times. “We have had a few players decide to play at other clubs and other levels. There are a lot of young girls who have come through Fencibles over the past few years who are now in the squad.” Fencibles will be without all of its recognised representa- tive stars from previous cam- paigns, including Football Fern Hannah Wall (knee injury) and age-group selections Lucy Carter (over- seas), Abigail Roper (trans- ferred to Lynn-Avon) and Steph Trowill (to Eastern Suburbs). The club qualified for the league’s top six before the draw split midway through last season, but was eas- ily accounted for by the leading teams. Fencibles leaked 65 goals compared with 27 by second- bottom Forrest Hill Milford. Wallbank has made steps to rec- tify the weakness with new person- nel and strategies in place. “We have more defensive ability through the mid- field, rather than letting the ball get all the way to the back,” she says. “If we play it right, we have the opportunity to win the ball higher up the field and that’s important so that we’re not constantly in front of our goal.” The defence will be led by former Lynn-Avon goalkeeper and league veteran Ashleigh McNaughton (nee Cox). “Her maturity is really good for the team and it’s going to be really valuable to have someone of her experience in goal to perform week after week.” New to Riverhills Park also is Rotorua’s Mianna Laing, who travelled to England with coaching academy Coerver to train at clubs such as Chelsea and Tottenham last year and was named the players’ player of the tour. “She’s proving to be really strong and technically profi- cient,” says Wallbank, of her defensive acquisition. At the other end of the pitch, Wallbank needs to replace the scoring contribution of Trowill, who netted 11 of the side’s 23 goals last year. “We’ve set up a formation to potentially provide a number of players with opportunities to score, but that has to come through the cohesiveness of the team. “We have a number of indi- viduals who definitely have the speed and ability and will give it a really good crack at scoring when the opportu- nity presents itself, and that’s a better position to be in than one or two specific goal scorers.” With so many new faces to the team and league, Wallbank and assist- ant Laura Baxter used the Northern Football Federa- tion preseason tournament to assess their recruits in match situations. “We did a lot of rotating though different positions to understand where players were at technically and tacti- cally and identify their key strengths and work-ons,” says Wallbank. “It was about the new play- ers coming together and work- ing as a team, so they get more familiar with each other and understand the formation. “The girls have taken on their roles and responsibili- ties, but there is still learning to do.” The NRFL women’s pre- mier league is reduced from 12 teams to 10 this year, with Papakura (relegated) and Pukekohe (not entered) gone, and all but two clubs (Bay of Plenty and Claudelands) will field sides in a newly-formed championship competition, which will curtainraise for the premier XI fixtures. Fencibles kicks off its sea- son at 1pm this Sunday against Bay of Plenty in Papamoa.
