Women’s Team patrons announced

Canterbury Football Club is excited to announce the appointment of Lee Brown and Annabelle Smith as women’s squad patrons for season 2019.

Lee was the first ever female player at the Canterbury Football Club, playing football with junior boy’s team in the 1980’s, long before a girls competition existed. Lee’s love and involvement with football continues, and she is currently playing in a Masters competition.

Belle is an Australian Olympic Bronze Medallist in Diving, and is currently preparing for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Both our patrons have attended training sessions to address the women’s squad, telling their story, and sharing with the group their experiences with hardship, motivation, discipline and pre-performance preparation.

The Canterbury Football Club extends its warmest welcome to both Lee and Belle, and is thrilled to have them on board for Season 2019 inspiring our women’s squad.
