The Coburg Football Club is ecstatic to secure the services of Jacquelyn Bromilow.
Bromilow has spent most of her football career playing in the Eastern Football League and looked to further her experience at Coburg, who will be playing in the South Eastern Women’s Competition this season.
“I started playing at Upper Ferntree Gully,” Bromilow said. “Then I moved to Waverley Blues and then to Melbourne Uni. I was supposed to play for Caulfield last year but didn’t get the chance to because of Covid-19. Hugh (Coburg Strength and Conditioning Coach) convinced me to check out Coburg and now here I am!”
Bromilow impressed in particular at Waverley Blues, having played 15 games for the club over the 2018 season and being named in the best players three times.
Despite not playing a game for the Lions yet, Bromilow is already enjoying the Coburg culture, led by coach Liam Cavanagh and his energetic playing group.
“I enjoy the level we’re getting coached at and the girls are great too,” she said.
Bromilow is a versatile player, like many of the players in Coburg’s inaugural Senior Women’s team. But she admits there’s one position that she fits in better than most.
“I kind of play everywhere,” she said. “If there’s a role in the team, I’ll try to fill it but I’m generally a midfielder.”
Just like Jacquelyn Bromilow, you can commit to the Lions for 2021 by purchasing one of our 2021 memberships which are on sale now! Make sure you keep up to date with all the news from the Lions new women’s side by following our new page on Instagram @coburgfcw.
