SMOSH West Lakes Womens Football Club
The SMOSH West Lakes Women’s Football Club was started in the Spring of 2018 and officially registered for the Adelaide Football League in February 2019. The SMOSH West Lakes junior footy club boasts the honour of having AFLW star Erin Phillips as a junior club legend and therefore it was fitting that her father Greg Phillips (pictured left), Port Adelaide FC legendary Centre Half Back and AFL hall of Fame-er, was approached to be our inaugural coach. He accepted, and we now have forged a wonderful club culture as a result.
The club has the backing of the Senior Men’s and Junior clubs and fields a Division 1 and Reserves teams, and also an U18/U17.5 Girls team. Our current Senior Coach is Brad Day.
TRAINING (IN SEASON)
Bartley Terrace, West Lakes Shore oval
Monday and Wednesday nights from 6:00 p.m. sharp.
The club is aspiring to be the premier women’s footy club in the west and build a club culture that is already entrenched into the sports club already. Women of all experience are encouraged to try out and we also encourage girls to consider playing with our juniors as a pathway to our senior women’s footy team. See junior website link in the header menu for Junior Footy.

Meet the Coach
SMOSH West Lakes is continuing to be the premier women’s footy club in the west since first registering with the Adelaide Footy League in February 2019. SMOSH West Lakes women’s have won Division 1 A grade and A grade Reserves premierships while flourishing on a club culture that is entrenched in our sports club, being; encouraging and embracing the opportunity to develop player’s skills, knowledge and friendships.
After enjoying 3 extremely successful years as inaugural coach, all round football legend Greg Phillips is moving to a club coach-mentoring role, allowing Brad Day to accept the role of senior A grade womens coach, working alongside reserves coach Ashleigh Bridge.
Brad (Daisy) enjoyed a successful junior football career at Port Districts, Immanuel College, and Port Adelaide Magpies going on to represent South Australia in the 1993 U17 Teal Cup Team coached by Russell Ebert.
Brad went on to play a few injury-plagued years of senior football at both Port Adelaide Magpies (with Greg Phillips as coach) and Port Districts before having to retire from playing in his early 20’s due to on-going knee injuries. He was lucky enough to be coached by some of biggest names in SA football including John Cahill, Brian Fairclough, Neville Thiele, Gary Tredrea, Neil Kearley, and of course Greg Phillips and Russell Ebert.
Brad will combine his SMOSH senior women’s coaching position with his continuing role as Woodville West Torrens Eagles FC Centre of Excellence U13 boys development coach and also with the SMOSH WL junior committee.
Brad will continue to make certain SMOSH West Lakes is the successful destination footy club in the west for women’s footy and maintain the high standards of success, development, club culture and football enjoyment for all female players.

Sponsor a Player
One of the initiatives we have at the SMOSH West Lakes Footy Club is the ability to sponsor a player. This initiative started with the men’s teams and we are opening it up for our women’s teams as well. This is a great way to personally support a women’s player and promote your business as well. A poster (see example) will be posted above the bar at the West Lakes Sports Club, and a copy provided to you the sponsor.
The player will also be supported based on the sponsor option you choose below.
There are two options to choose from:
- Option 1 – $400 p/a (supports the player’s fees)
- Option 2 – $550 p/a (supports the player’s fees and provides a 1m banner to be displayed at the club)
To sponsor a player, simply download the Player Sponsor form and complete the instructions. Your business could be promoted right here on this website (see posters below)
