Australia’s best female footballers are preparing for a second exhibition match between teams representing the Western Bulldogs and Melbourne, which will be held as a curtain-raiser to Sunday's AFL clash between the clubs at Etihad Stadium. The match is considered to be the high-point of the AFL's Female Football Program.
Three Melbourne University Footballers (MUGARs) have been selected from the 2014 AFL Women’s draft, and will join players retained on the lists of the Demons and the Bulldogs after last year’s hugely successful match.
Melbourne University Women's Football Club Head Coach Michael Sandry has been named as co-coach of the 2014 women's Western Bulldogs squad. Sandry will replace Peta Searle, who has stepped aside following her appointment as development coach of St Kilda Football Club.
