Soccer pioneer speaks at Rotary club
Women's soccer pioneer Ms Julie Dolan has appeared as a guest speaker at Umina Beach Rotary Club.
Ms Dolan was recognised in the 2018 Queen's Birthday Honours List with an Order of Australia Medal for her significant service to football as an administrator, player and coach, and as an ambassador for elite player development and junior participation.
Club publicity officer Mr Geoff Melville said: "A pioneer of women's football in Australia and an FFA Hall of Fame inductee, Ms Dolan is currently the football technical director at the International Football School on the Central Coast.
"In her services as a player captaining her country, but perhaps even more significantly as an administrator, she has been a major force behind the growth of women's football," he said.
