A fifth straight grand final triumph. A 56th consecutive victory. A third title in the bank for 2018.

All sit at the Albion Park Women’s first division squad’s fingertips this weekend.

The all-conquering women’s team – arguably the best club side in the country – face off against University in the top tier grand final this Sunday.

Park have already won the State Cup and regular season title this campaign and can seal a title treble with victory over a competitive Uni outfit.

They beat the same University squad 4-1 to book their spot in the decider.

However, Park coach Macca Davis says his high-flying team won’t be underestimating their rivals on the biggest day of the season. 

“We are not ahead of ourselves because we know they are a good team,” he said.

“If we don’t turn up, they will teach us a lesson. We know that.

“We are expecting a good, hard game and hopefully the best team wins on the day.”

The first grade decider headlines a massive slate of matches across a busy weekend at Shellharbour’s Myimbarr Fields. 

The junior grand finals kicked off on Friday night, with all grades of female competitions set to take place on the same day for the second straight year. 

“We would like to provide an opportunity for our young female footballers to be in an environment where they can see how they could play and develop from our junior girls football, through to our energetic and strong open women’s competitions,” Football South Coast chief executive Ann-Marie Balliana said.
