The Palmerston Women’s Football Team was established in the NTFL Women’s Competition in season 2008/2009. Success was soon knocking on the Palmy Army’s ladies Team doors when they became the 2010/2011 Premiers. Since making their mark in the Women’s Competition 8 seasons ago – they have continued to play finals footy continuously within this short period of time. The Palmy Magpies Women Team is situation at Norbuilt Oval – located in the Suburb of Durack, Palmerston, Darwin in the Northern Territory. In total for the 2015/2016 season our great club had registered 70 female participants who on their own will gave commitment, dedication and courage to compete strongly throughout the year. This saw a total of 31 senior women’s registrations, 24 registered participants for the U15 Girls Team and 15 registered participants for our U18 Youth Girls competition. Our youth are the future of our club and our Senior Women’s.
