Roosterettes secure second spot ahead of final round

Singleton will play host to Newcastle City this Saturday at Rose Point Park for the final round of the home and away season.

The Singleton Roosterettes will aim for a third straight win when the play host to Newcastle City in the final round of the home and away season this Saturday.

Regardless of the result, Nadene McBride’s women will finish second on the ladder and will face the winner of tomorrow’s clash between The Entrance Bateau Bay and Wallsend-West Newcastle in the semi-final.

“Our top two finish is extremely positive for team morale and the club,” McBride said.

“As a coach it is tougher as everyone wants to be a part of the success and we can only take some with us on the ride.

“But our goal has not changed, we are all here to ‘have fun’.”

The line-up has won eight of its opening 11 games including a 116-point hiding of Gosford in Round 10.

It would be the side’s second biggest win since its inception in 2016.

“There have been quite a few proud moments but the one that sticks in my head is our win against Lake Macquarie in the first game,” she added.

“It was not what we were expecting at all, an awesome team effort and we pulled it off.”

Last week the Roosterettes also aided their opposition with some players to help balance the numbers.

“We actually gave Tiarna Windle and Celine Amber Mitchell a run for the opposition and they both hit it hard which was very good to see,” she explained.

While the Roosterettes will be without Raynuka Chapman (work) in the finals series, McBride has highlighted the recent form of Lua Roser and Sarah Mousley.

“Both have returned to our team in the second half of the season after work and study commitments kept them away,” she concluded.

“Both bring pace and ferocious tackling that strengthens our great defensive team.”

Singleton’s first grade men will then take on Newcastle City at 2pm while Singleton’s Youth Girls will play their final match against Nelson Bay (away) the following day.
