Roosterettes shine for Hunter team


A talented group of six Singleton Roosterettes represented the Hunter side on Monday.

Singleton’s Kyah McBride was selected as co-captain for the side, which played two games at the AFL Hunter Central Coast Women’s Challenge Cup, alongside Cardiff defender Jessica Bannerman.

The inspirational skipper was joined by fellow Roosterettes Sophie Breeze, Neisha Macpherson, Nikki Robson, Kustiani Tuckerman and Brittany Eveleigh.

The line-up was coached by Singleton’s Nadene McBride with assistance from Alex Tigani (forward line), Daltyn McCartney (runner) and Cardiff’s Liam Gibson (back line).

“We were syncing more and more as the games went on,” McBride explained.

“Today was a massive win for the Hunter as we were competitive.

“Each member of the team helped keep Women’s Footy alive and kicking in our region.”
