After 10 years of extraordinary football and futsal success, Mrs Watts is taking a break from coaching. Her generous nature, kindness and passion for football, as well as our Glennie girls, have seen numerous successes throughout her 10 years. Mrs Watts has single-handedly built a very successful football program from a single team to a highly successful multiple team club. The numbers of girls wanting to play football and futsal is a testament to her high-quality programs.
She has led many successful teams to victory including last year's Fillies who won the 2019 Grand Final, and in 2017 the Red Lions Cup team won the Grand Final against Harristown State High School who had dominated the competition for 12 years.
Here are just a few of the amazing testaments to Mrs Watts’ impact on football and the girls who appreciate all she has done:
“I've been a part of the soccer program with Mrs Watts since 2015, and it has always been a supportive and positive environment where we can all be ourselves. I know for a fact that we all look up to Mrs Watts and greatly appreciate everything that she has done for us over the years.” Georgia Barnes
“Mrs Watts, the mother of Glennie Football. I am convinced that her heart is in the shape of a soccer ball. When anyone at Glennie hears the words "football" or "futsal", Mrs Watts comes to mind within a heartbeat. Although we will miss her yelling at us from the sidelines as our coach, I am sure she will be there yelling at us as our newly titled soccer mum. As Bella once said, "We started as a team but ended as a family", it just shows that Mrs Watts will always be the mum of our close-knit soccer fam. While we train hard next term, and try to make her proud, I hope that she enjoys for the first time in many many years, not having to spend early mornings and late afternoons on the field with her hectic soccer children. “ Becci Roellgen
“Mrs Watts is Glennie Football! Her enthusiasm is infectious and her support is unwavering. She has helped to create my passion for football and has inspired me to be the best I can be.” Olivia Smith
We know that this has been a difficult decision for Mrs Watts, and that she will be missed greatly, but I am sure she will never be too far from the field!
