One goal short of true happiness

There were a few tears, others were smiling but the joy was a little subdued. First Vienna U13 Girls, last Saturday, had progressed to the final of the indoor tournament only to face defeat to Landhaus U13 Girls.

First Vienna had progressed through four games in the girls’ football tournament undefeated and without conceding, only to lose by a single goal in a closely fought final. I suspect, as these two teams progressive through league and tournaments in coming years, there will be many more close run competitions between the two.









The eight teams that participated in the tournament came from Upper Austria, Lower Austria, and Vienna.

First Vienna girls start training

H joined other girls at the Hohe Warte stadium, last Monday, for the second taster session and trial for First Vienna FC’s new girl’s football teams. With parents sitting in the stands watching on the club coaches took the girls through an hour long training session. The quality of footballing skill shown by many of the girls was highly impressive.

Now the serious effort will begin on the 26th September with the girls having twice weekly training sessions and playing friendly matches over the course of the season (and then entering league competition next year). For the parents watching on its going to be an entertaining but rather cold winter 🙂

More on First Vienna’s Girls’ Football

H was excited to see the report on First Vienna’s website about last Friday’s girls’ football trials. She spent much of yesterday and today telling all her friends about running out on to the club pitch, the coaching, and playing football in a real stadium. Last night she told me that she had made sure she had eaten five different fruits as part of her fitness training for next September’s trials 🙂

Stars of the future – First Vienna Girls Football

Making the team is today’s big issue for H and her friend. Will they get selected at next September’s trials for the First Vienna Girls Football squad? When will they train and who will they play against?

Yesterday First Vienna held a football taster session and trials for their new Girls Football teams at the clubs stadium. With the training taking place on the pitch, the event being filmed by ORF (Austrian TV), and some of the kids being interviewed by the TV journalist, the girls really got the chance to take centre stage.

First Vienna is one of a group of Bundesliga clubs developing girls’ football in their areas. The kids at yesterday’s trials showed at lot of enthusiasm, skill and potential. After the September trials and final selections the club could well be producing playing stars of the future. In the meantime, there will be a fair few parents being continually harangued over the summer by their daughters about all aspects of the game and the club until they’re selected for the squad and attend their first training session. Alas, I suspect that at this point matters of transportation, training and matches will then become the main focus of family conversation 🙂

I understand that the TV report should be broadcast sometime this weekend.

First Vienna Football Club was the first team to be established in Austria and their senior team play in the Erste Liga.
