Women's – Belinda 'Blouse' Bowey (0417 560 757)
2019 will see the introduction of Belinda "Blouse" Bowey as the Coach of the Women's Team. Blouse brings a tonne of football experience to our newest team and hopes to lead them to glory over the 10 game season next year.
Belinda fell in love with the sport at a young age, playing kick-to-kick in the backyard with her twin-brother Matthew and older sibling Brett – who played 85 games for St Kilda in the VFL/AFL between 1988 to ’94.
It’s there that the love affair began – a love cut short after her final season in the under 14s. Applying the rules of the day, Bowey was told she was no longer allowed to play with the boys in the under 16s – and there was nowhere else for girls to play footy.
A phone call in late 1991 to then 17-year-old would propel her to the lofty heights of the 350-game club player.
AFL Women's Masters Comes To Lionland
Melbourne Masters footy club is excited to announce the introduction of an over 30’s Womens side.
As a founding member of the Men’s league, we are proud and honoured to be a part of the first Vic Metro, Womens AFL Masters league. Our side will be one of four teams participating in this inaugural completion alongside Werribee, Waverley and Coburg. In the spirit of our club culture and ethos of inclusion, the girls will be training alongside the boys and no doubt giving us all a run for our money.
Welcome ladies, we look forward to your contributions to the club and the Jumper. Go Lions!
