North Pines WFC

North Pines debuted in 2016 in Division Two of the Adelaide Footy League for women. It proved to be a baptism of fire as all 18 matches for the season were lost, leading inevitably to the wooden spoon. If that was not bad enough, the result also meant that, for 2017, the Redbacks were demoted to the newly formed Division Three. On a more positive note, they performed well at the lower level, qualifying for the finals in third place after winning 9 of their 14 fixtures. A hard fought 3 point defeat of Port Adelaide in the first semi final followed before Gaza brought the Redbacks' season to an end with a 3.7 (25) to 1.8 (14) preliminary final triumph.
