WHILE the men hit the road this weekend, the Muswellbrook Cats GE women’s outfit will mark a milestone in the Hunter Haval Black Diamond AFL.

The local squad is scheduled to play its first-ever home game at Weeraman Field on Saturday.

Unfortunately for the Cats, their rivals are the very much in-form Newcastle City.

“It will be a tough game,” coach Ken Garland told the Chronicle.

“City was last year’s grand finalist.

“But, the local girls never give up – and will try to the end.

“It would be nice to see some supporters at Weeraman cheering them on.

“And, if anyone is interested in having a run, head up to the ground.”

The bounce up takes place at noon.

Meanwhile, Muswellbrook’s Black Diamond Plate representatives line-up against Terrigal Avoca, with the match starting at Hylton Moore Oval from 10am.
