THE Coastal Premier League men have had two years of top flight inter-regional competition.
Now it’s the women’s turn.
The new Coastal League One Women competition kicks off this weekend with Round 1 matches to be played at the Coffs Football Centre.
The new women’s competition is set to feature five teams; Boambee Bombers, Coffs City United Lionesses, Macleay Valley Rangers, Sawtell Scorpions, and the Urunga Raiders.
Sawtell Scorpions and Macleay Valley Rangers kick off the inaugural season with the first ever game on Friday night.
The Coffs United Lionesses and Urunga Raiders also face off in the opening round on Sunday night.
Boambee Bombers have the opening round bye, and are coming off a 2021 season in which they finished undefeated minor premiers in the women’s first division.
The Urunga Raiders finished second on the ladder last season and won the women’s title in 2020.
The Coffs City United Lionesses last played in the top local women’s competition in 2020, while the Sawtell Scorpions played in the women’s second division South competition in 2019.
