Round 10 Anytime Fitness Women’s Rising Star: Grace Read

Posted on - Latest News, Featured, Power House

The VAFA congratulates Grace Read from Power House Amateur Football Club who has been nominated as the Round 10 Anytime Fitness Rising Star. Grace delivered a strong performance and a goal from the weekend, getting her team over the line in a narrow win over Glen Eira.

What the club said:

Grace has come from a soccer background and has adapted to Australian Rules Football very quickly. Her athletic ability has put her in good stead to take on the game. Her determination to learn and improve is clearly evident – always at training and always with a broad smile.

We knew that eventually her mighty kick would land us an important goal and on Saturday, in the most trying conditions, Grace launched one that skidded through for a vital 6 points.

In the last few weeks Grace has played ruck and took the role on without notice and most definitely without fear, once again displaying what a fierce competitor and selfless teammate she is.

Grace, or “Ready” as we fondly call her, has enormous potential! We are very proud to have her as part of the Power House Family and look forward to watching her develop further as a footballer.
