National Premier Leagues NSW Women’s side Bankstown City FC were recognised for their efforts in 2022 thanks to the Independent Member for Bankstown Tania Mihailuk at recent NSW Parliament gathering.
The Independent Member for Bankstown was proud of how the ambitious club performed this year stating the continual growth of the women’s game within the football mad area.
“Bankstown City Lions Football Club had their best ever season on record in the 2022 NSW NPL Women’s Competition,” Mihailuk stated.
“The Club has grown tremendously over the past decade in Football NSW Women’s Competitions.
“From their first season in only 2013, Bankstown City Lions is now one of the leading Clubs in our State, giving opportunities for local girls to develop their football skills at the semi-professional level, and enabling girls and women in Bankstown to progress into the A-League Women’s or the Matildas such as Mary Fowler, who played for Bankstown.
“Under the leadership of Club Treasurer, Women’s Convenor and Charles Valentine Medal winner Denise Hinton, Bankstown finished 6th this season and were only 1 win short of a finals place.
“The Club’s football department is led by Matt Constatini and Paul Constatini whose professionalism played a key role in making Bankstown have their best ever finish in NSW Women’s competitions.
“The future looks bright at Bankstown City Lions NPL Women’s. The junior teams look strong for 2023 and I believe that the Club will challenge for the NPL Women’s title next year.
“It is an exciting time for women’s football in Bankstown.”
