GPF Radio: Pride Match, Melbourne Uni vs Darebin, VFLW Round 5

After a week off for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, the VFL Women’s competition returns with a special event: the ‘Gay? That’s OK’ Pride match between Melbourne University and Darebin in Hamilton.

Live from 2:00pm (AEST) at Melville Oval, the Girls Play Footy Radio team will be presenting a one hour pre-game show, including a preview of all the community women’s footy leagues, plus the call of the game from the first bounce at 3:00pm.

The game will see the return of AFLW players Cecilia McIntosh and Aasta O’Connor for the Mugars and Falcons respectively, while the AFLW Rising Star from the Adelaide Crows, Ebony Marinoff, will make her VFLW debut for Darebin.

With Melbourne University undefeated so far, and Darebin sitting in an unfamiliar position with two wins and two loses early, expect both sides to be bringing their A-game today.
