North Companions Black FC Claim 2021 Women’s Division Minor Premiership

September 8th, 2021

At the conclusion of the 2021 regular season North Companions Black FC have finished on top of the ladder to claim the Women’s Division Minor Premiership.

North Companions edged out Tamworth FC on goal difference to finish on top. The 44 goals scored by Women’s Division Golden Boot Taleisha Bartlett helped secure the Minor Premiership.

“The club has promoted female participation over a number of years, and it is starting to show with plenty of quality youth players making their way into the Women’s Division teams”.

“Congratulations to all players and team officials involved.”

Should the NSW lockdown be lifted on Friday 10 September, North Companions Black FC will get the chance to be grand final winners. Semi-finals are scheduled for 18 September with the grand final played on 25 September.

If the lockdown is extended no grand final winners or runners up will be awarded for 2021.

General Comment

It’s great to finish minor premiers! David Palmer and I have been working hard with the whole squad to breed a competitive team environment.

The reasons for success?

Having the ability to get the ball to our strikers Emma Allen and Taleshia Bartlett who between them have scored 62 Goals.

Can you win the grand final?

We are certainly up for the challenge all about doing the little things on the day.


Kylie Wilson – Captain

Reason for success?

Because we have a great mixture of players from all age division, with many families playing together that inspire and motivate each other.

Can you win the grand final?

Pending on who we play, our key would be defence, but the girls are certainly up for it.

How has the team handled the extended lockdown, and will you be prepared coming out of lockdown for finals football?

We have maintained our fitness during lockdown with individual strategies and fitness guided by the coaches.
