SSFA Shire Premier League
At the end of 2021, the Sutherland Shire Football Association announced plans for an elite top tier competition for Men's and Women's Football in the Sutherland Shire, it would be called the Shire Premier League.
Men's teams could apply for a licence in this elite competition but we're limited to one team per club and the club needed to provide both a Firsts and Reserves squad. The Women's competition permitted up to 2 teams per club and only First Grade.
The concept was supported strongly by the football community and local businesses, with Cross Realty signing on as Major Sponsor just days after Miranda Magpies were granted their licence.
2023 SEASON, Miranda entered both competitions for the first time with the Men's in their inaugural season finishing last in both first grade and reserve grade. It's always tough starting a new season with a new team and Miranda Magpies will be stronger for the experience next season.
Our Women's Team had a strong season, finishing 3rd in the new 7 team competition, before beating both Gymea teams in the semi-finals to reach the 2023 Grand Final against Bosco FC. It was a close encounter for most of the match before Bosco capitalised, scoring with 12 remaining and holding on for a 1-0 victory. We're very proud of our Women's Team and are excited about going one better in 2024.
2022 SEASON of the Shire Premier League Women's saw Miranda Magpies take out the Minor Premiership in a stellar season, finishing first with most goals scored and least against. Magpies excelled in 2022, led by midfielder and SPL Women's Player of the Year Jessica Beale (pictured).
Miranda were unfortunate to lose both semi-finals and miss the Grand Final.
