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 Barry Murphy.
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 their first Division 1 premiership 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.
We are very excited to announce our new Division 1 Head Coach, Barry Murphy!
Barry has been involved in the Female Football Program at SMOSH WL for a number of years. First as an assistant coach in our U14s and U16’s before being appointed as the Head Coach for the Inaugural U18s team. Barry has also developed his skills at SANFLW Level assisting the North Adelaide Women’s side. He is always around the club and happy to put his hand up to assist the senior sides.
Not only is Barry super experienced at coaching female football, he’s also a top bloke! Barry is very passionate about what he does and is much loved by all at SMOSH.
Barry has hit the ground running in his new role and has some very exciting ideas to help improve culture on and off the field in season 2023.
Perfect man for the job!

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)
