"I have come to Annerley after heading up senior Women's Football at Bayside United for the past 2 seasons. I have been made to feel very welcome, and the club has put together a great coaching team and support network for women's football. No wonder Annerley has such a great reputation!! We have had a good pre-season, although not without its challenges. The continuous competition restructures are affecting women's football remarkably, and it has seen us lose players who would otherwise love to be playing here. The over allocation of NPL licences has created a vacuum of quality girls, but we have been lucky in building a strong squad and our ongoing relationship with the local NPL licensee (Olympic FC) create significant long term opportunities We are well prepared for round 1, coming off the back of an undefeated pre-season for the Division 1 side which culminated in winning the BWPL Reserves Invitational Trophy. We do have a substantial number of girls out this week though due to injury and being away, caught out by the staggered start to the season. >>>
"Anyone else see the striking resemblance between the coach and I?"
Ipswich were the BWPL premiers last year and have stepped back a division this year, so we are prepared for a tough encounter first up. They will be a quality side, and no matter how much they try to play themselves down, we will not take them lightly. It should be a good contest. With all the hard work done so far and the quality across both the squad, coaching and support staff, I truly believe in our outfit, think we should get a hard fought result today and expect we should be in the mix come the end of the season."
Assistant Coach: Sean Jenkins (Canadian not American) "Time for kickoff! The season is upon us and Anthony, Michael and I have worked hard with the ladies to hit the ground running. As a newbie to the Annerley family I’d like to introduce myself. I have extensive playing history in Canada and Australia, but this is my first real coaching experience, as well as my introduction to women’s football. For this reason I am delighted to have the opportunity to commence my education with Annerley FC! We have an immensely talented and industrious squad to work with and our pre-season has been very promising. I am looking forward to seeing all of that hard work expressed on the pitch. The coaches all share a common vision of the sport and look forward to an intelligent and attacking game today. Having such talented players means we can showcase a lot of tactical flexibility in our game plan, so don’t be surprised to see some familiar players pop up in unpredictable roles! The ladies have all worked incredibly hard this preseason and I know you will be as impressed with their teamwork, graft, and skill as we have been. Onwards!"
BWPL Coach: Anthony Costa (FFA Senior Football License) "2015 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for Annerley's BWPL and Division 1 teams. We have a number of new players joining our division 1 team, including a couple of players from our last year’s division 3 team. We also have a few players who have stepped up and are currently in our BWPL team. Our BWPL and Division 1 team have been working as a squad during pre-season and will continue to do so throughout the year. There is a new coaching structure for both our top two women's teams for this year, and it has been very pleasing to see the players working hard in pre-season as they continue to improve week by week, learning our new structures and systems. Here's to a cracking 2015 season!"

Full name: Daniel Ruiz Giménez Nickname(s): Logan Occupation: Software Analyst Current Annerley team: Capital League 1 Reserves Most embarrassing footballing moment: Any mistake… you know I’m a goalkeeper, so any mistake is embarrassing. Pre-game rituals/superstitions: Too much talking - I talk to the central backs, to the posts and to myself, then I spit on my gloves. Pre-game song: Boikot – Sin Tiempo para Respirar. What do you remember about your first ever coach: That guy made me cry! But he taught me that football is about sacrifice and fight. Actually, that was a lesson that I used in my life quite often. I owe him a lot. Any additional information you would like to share: I’m single, currently looking for an Aussie girl… you know… I’m Spanish I have some love to share!
