Pre-season friendly: Maribyrnong Lightning Swifts vs Cairnlea FC

Maribyrnong Lightning Swifts will be playing Cairnlea FC tomorrow in the team’s and club’s first preseason friendly.

The match will be held at Dobson Reserve (cnr of Yardley St and Montgomery St in Maidstone). Match kick off time is 10am.


All supporters are welcome. Get pumped up for the start of soccer season!

MSFC also warmly welcomes Cairnlea FC to our part of the neighbourhood. We are looking forward to a brilliant game with them tomorrow. 🙂

UPDATE: Cairnlea put up a fierce competition to give us a glimpse of the standard of the Metro league competition. Lightning Swifts rose up to the occasion and stood strong. Although we succumbed 3-0 in the end, we synced and gelled well for a team of ladies that played together proper for the first time. And amazingly, many of us have never dreamt of touching a soccer ball, let alone playing competitively on a pitch. We started driving in strong during the second half, but towards the end of the match, the 90minute game took its toll on our fitness. Hint: know what we need to work on now girls? 🙂

Also, a brilliant shout out to Tanya, our club’s president, who took the plunge and refereed her first match ever. It was smooth and fair. Well done!
