Over the past week, Melbourne Heart has been celebrating the involvement of girls and women in football.

Prior to the Club's final game against Western Sydney Wanderers, Melbourne Heart's community department hosted an afternoon tea for our female members and fans.

Clint Bolton was a popular MC and the Club was honoured to have Matilda Ashley Brown, who is currently undergoing rehabilitation for a knee injury and Melbourne Heart midfielder Nick Kalmar speak to the gathering of over 50 women.

Melbourne Heart were proud to host 20 excited girls and their parents who had travelled from Ballarat to play in the Mini Roos games at half time at AAMI Park.

On Monday, 50 young girls attended a Girls with Heart clinic led by Game Development Officer Louisa Bisby and supported by local Coerver coach Ben Monteleone and SEDA students.

Melbourne Heart would like to thank Brunswick Zebras for hosting the clinic. We are able to provide this opportunity for girls free of charge, courtesy of the support of the Reagan Milstein Foundation.

Sue Crow, Melbourne Heart FC's General Manager, Community, said; “ Our initiatives for females are really well received and are gaining momentum. We are looking forward to growing our programs for women and girls next season.”
