Fed League for women is an interesting one being run with only 4 teams

The draw has a Napier South Team in Division 3. Only two Hastings hibernian sides this year as well.

I think that masters league could be very tight, those havelock sides werent too bad last year either.

Good regional representation though, I hear.

Moturoa (NewPlymouth), Wanganui (Athletic?), Massey Uni and a side from the bay (Taradale maybe? ). Just missing Gisborne.

Hokowhitu apparently Covid dropouts, and a sizeable number turned up at Massey wanting a spot, so it may be more financial than lack of players.

Na Hoko women disbanded end of last year from what I heard, The senior club had some issues which resulted in no prizegiving etc. which caused the team to walk away to another club. Super sad really 4 years ago Hoko seniors were on the up had gone from 1 mens team to 4 with 2 women's teams. 

Yea I heard the coach from Massey recruited very actively to build a really good sized squad.

Really hope the Fed League can come back stronger next year for the Women as its good for Football in the region.

Hopefully the womens fed league can expand in the coming years, Hawkes Bay certainly has the talent around for another team. But the players have to want to travel every second sunday which i imagine is the main hurdle.

I actually heard they tuned the Hokowhitu players way, but that was hearsay, so I couldn't comment on Massey particularly, any more than I would comment I've heard same said about Marist, Moturoa, and several Wellington clubs in the recent past, but suffice to say this is the sort of thing has been going on for years and is destroying women's football in the regions. It is the reason the Central A-League disintegrated into a four team farce, and the reason many teams folded.

Clubs go and recruit the best from all round, then run away with the league winning by double figures every week and then complaining there is no competition. 

I'm sure the same sort of thing goes on in men's football, the only thing saving that from descending to the same farce is additional depth.

I've seen junior clubs do the same; head hunt every 12 yr old rep player they can, then moan they don't get competitive games. Like anyone will remember who won the Taranaki U12 div one in 20xx...or even care

Get back to developing players and teaching them how to play the game.

I have no real comment on the Massey Coach positive or negative. I had just heard he was active in getting ladies along to his pre season. If he has built a strong squad I guess that shows they wanted to stick with him. I just hope the Fed League next year can move towards an 8 team competition as that would be good for football in the Central Region which struggles to hold some of its good players (Mens and Womens) post high school.

 I know I am late, but probably, hit up Central Football on the socials and if they are not running something I am surer they will know who is
