Werribee Centrals Season Wrap

Congratulations to the Werribee Centrals Football and Netball teams on a fantastic season! Jubilee are proud sponsors of this wonderful club and after attending their end of Season Presentation night we’re excited to bring you their end of season wrap!

Football

Under the guidance of first year coaches Nick Smith & Simon Calbert, Werribee Centrals saw great improvement in the senior men’s team, winning 10 ½ games (an increase of 5 1/2 games) and improving their percentage by 52.5%. This saw the team just miss out on playing finals.

The reserves under new Coach Ryan Quarrier worked extremely hard and were competitive in most games finishing 9th for the season.

The Colts team under new Coach Mick Camilleri, were again in Div 2. 2018 saw the Colts change to an under 19 competition, however unfortunately some injuries meant the team played most weeks without a full side. They finished the season in 8th position, with 7 players experiencing senior football for the season.

For the first time in the club’s history, the Werribee Centrals fielded a Senior Women’s team, playing in the WRFL under the guidance of the Junior Committee. Coached by Glenn Ballard and his team, the women came together only a few weeks before the season started and had a great first season, just missing out on finals finishing in 6th position. They did however win the Rivalry Round Cup against Tarneit.

Netball

A Grade coached by Nicole Weatherley finished in 1st position, also losing 1 game for the season, making it through to the grand final beating Thomson by a massive 28 goals to win their 5th grand final from the last 6 seasons.

Individual efforts from season 2018  Under 17s coached by Jenni Rothery finished the season in 4th position, unfortunately losing the grand final to Inverleigh by 9 goals.

B Grade coached by Emma Gilham & Tania Redpath finished in 1st position, losing 1 game for the season, making it through to the grand final beating Anakie by 4 goals to win their 3rd grand final in a row.
