First home game for Sunbury's women versus Brothers Villa

THE Sunbury women's football side will hope to continue their stellar season today when they play at the Maryborough Cricket Club for the first time.

The Sunbury club's two senior sides will play at the cricket field in Maryborough today.

Enjoying a successful season that has seen them only lose one game, the Sunbury A-Grade women will kick off at 4pm.

President David Chapman praised the girls for the strong start to the season and urged people to come out and support them today.

"The girls have been going pretty good," he said.

"It's the girls' first home game at the cricket club this season and the men's second.

"We're hoping for a few more supporters to turn up for the girls who play leading into the men's game."

Chapman said ceremonial and supportive environments did not mean the match against Bundaberg would be easy.

"The Villa ladies will be a tough game for them," he said.

"It should be a close one but we're obviously hoping they can get up."

Following the women's match the Sunbury men will take to the cricket field for the second time this season.

Player Josh Linwood expected it to be a difficult game.

"We've seen some of the results Brothers Aston Villa have been putting up," he said.

"They're a pretty classy team - the boys are going to have to be on their game."

With the Brothers side being Linwood's "pick of the season", he is hoping a win will appease the home crowd.

"Playing at home in front of all our supporters that watch us - we want to go out there and make it worthwhile for everyone who comes out."
