MD1 Saturday NPL/WSL Summer Cup review.
Women's football in Tasmania is back for another year but this year's instalment of the Statewide Cup will be a little different than previous years. Instead of a Round of 16 we only have 13 clubs nominated this year and three teams automatically go through the quarter-finals. It is a shame we didn't get the full sixteen so you'll have to forgive me for calling the fixtures match-day one. One has to wonder what went on there.
Football Tas today announced the Milan Lakoseljac Cup qualifiers to be played on the weekend of March 8th.
Traditionally the Summer Cup has been played by Southern NPL teams but Launceston City and Riverside will enter the fray this time round. City's inclusion is their first since 2017 while Riverside will have their first crack. NPL TAS Champions Devonport Strikers will not be in the comp. Perhaps their mind games ahead of the season.
Women's football is back for 2021 in Tasmania with the return of the Women's Summer Cup in late February. Fixtures have now been released on Football Tasmania's roster portal and are subject to change.
