Football’s best vie for glory

THE most prestigious junior football tournament for girls in the country is producing plenty of great action at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium.

More than 300 of Australia’s best young female footballers in the 13 Years and 15 Years divisions are competing in the Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls.

State pride is on the line with 19 teams from around Australia playing in the two different age groups.

The event has been hosted by Northern NSW Football at Coffs Harbour’s premier sporting ground since 2006.

Both the boys and girls championships are set to return to the stadium in 2017.

Today marks the third day of matches.

The tournament concludes on Friday afternoon when this year’s national champions will be crowned.
