Any budding female footballers are being encouraged to attend a clinic at Nathalia tomorrow, where Melbourne University star Bronwyn McGorlick will put players through their paces.GEORGINA CAHILL June 26, 2014 3:10am
Goulburn Valley girls will have the opportunity to learn from one of the best female footballers in the business tomorrow afternoon.
Former Melbourne University Women’s Football Club player Bronwyn McGorlick will pass on her knowledge when she and Kyabram youth girls’ coach Brett Hicks hold a clinic open to girls who are interested in playing the sport.
Girls will learn skills and practice drills at the clinic at Nathalia Recreation Reserve at 5
The 34-year-old is somewhat of a legend at Melbourne University Women’s Football Club.
McGorlick grew up in Wunghnu and has recently returned to Shepparton to teach at St Augustine’s College at Kyabram.
The former Victorian Women’s Football League player and Mugars president pulled on her boots 221 times for Melbourne University and holds the club record for most games played.
McGorlick joined MUWFC when she moved to Melbourne to study as an 18-year-old in 1998.
She said she was exposed to the sport when she moved to the city.
‘‘I didn’t really have any opportunities (to play football) in the country back then,’’ McGorlick said.
While McGorlick has hung up her boots at the top level, she’s helping build the profile of the sport in the Goulburn Valley.
‘‘I’m really, really keen to see opportunities for girls to get involved in footy,’’ McGorlick said.
‘‘There’s quite a few opportunities for girls to play footy in metropolitan areas and I’d like to see those opportunities in the country.
‘‘I think it’s the best sport in the world.’’
Since returning to the region last school term, McGorlick helped coach the Shepparton District Junior Football League youth girls’ interleague team against Bendigo Junior Football League on June 1.
She hopes the one-off clinic will attract strong attendance with the view to hold more.
‘‘I’m really encouraging as many girls to get along as they can,’’ she said.
