Rosemary Wells has been appointed as coach of Kingborough Lions United’s Premier Women’s League side.
She has played in the New South Wales Women’s Premier League and was selected for a Matildas training squad in the past.
Martin Dunnington will continue as the reserves coach.
Kingborough are also hoping to have a social team in Division Two.
The club will have some training sessions before Christmas so that players can meet the new coach.
The first of these is at 6.30pm on Monday, 13 December, followed by another on the Wednesday. These will be held at Lightwood ground 3 and players should use the Gormley Road entrance to get to the ground.
Beachside will play a practice match against Taroona at Olinda Grove next Sunday commencing at 2.30pm.
Beachside are also running sessions on Sundays at 3pm at Sandown for juniors from under-10s and up.
“These are just a kick about so that people can have a look at the club,” said senior coach, Brett Pullen.
“The social men’s players have also started having a kick at the same time and venue, but this will stop over Christmas and recommence on 9 January and anyone is welcome.
“They can call me on 0412 123 014 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Beachside and Special Olympics Tasmania have commenced soccer sessions for children aged 10 to 14 years with physical and mental disabilities.
Sessions will recommence in early January and enquiries may be made to Brett Pullen at the same contact details mentioned above.
