Play On! The hidden history of women’s Australian Rules football

By Brunette Lenkić (Class of 1980) & Rob Hess

Since the inception of Australian Rules football in the 1850s, women have been eager to be involved. More than 100 years ago, they began taking to the field. However, their stories have largely been invisible – sidelined, ignored or forgotten.

PLAY ON is a meticulously researched history of women’s football and Brunette and her co-author, Rob Hess, interviewed players from the 1940s right through to the present day about the struggles that they’ve had to face to have their game recognised by the establishment. Tracing the development and popularity of the women’s game, and with the inaugural women’s league commencing in 2017, PLAY ON is a timely book that players, fans and history buffs will not want to miss.   

The book signing for Play On! is on Friday, 30 Sept at midday at Dymocks Rundle Mall store.

Old Ignatians Cricket Club Twenty-20 Match

After losing the toss and bowling first last night, the Old Ignatians Cricket Club (OICC) were set 102 to win, but narrowly lost in a nail biter, and in fading light, by 2 runs after needing 7 runs from the last over. A youthful OICC side really pushed a high calibre Hectorville team (rumoured to have an ex junior Sri Lankan international) and drew many positives from the performance.

Thank you to the OICC for letting the OIA host a BBQ at the match and hopefully this will now lead the path for many more Old Ignatian Sporting Club and OIA opportunities to come!

OISC Reserve Grade Cup Final

On Sunday 21st September, the Old Ignatians Soccer Club played off in its first Cup Final since 2009.  Their opposition was Elizabeth Downs, a powerhouse from the Sunday Division 1 league and interestingly, the same team OISC faced back in 2002 in the Cup Final.  OISC were victorious on that day and two members of the 2002 squad again suited up for Sunday’s final; Old Scholars Ryan Dew (Class of 2000) and Shaun George (Class of 2001).

2014 has undoubtedly been a disappointing season for the soccer club, but Sunday’s 6-1 thrashing allowed the club to finish the season on a high.  The winning cup squad featured a host of Old Scholars and was coached by former College Captain Daniel Rossi (Class of 2004).

Congratulations must go out to all involved with victory. Special thanks also to the hard working OISC committee and the supporters who came out to support the side.

Go you Wolves!!

OISC Club Captain
