Following a successful second year, the Mid North Women's Football League will return in 2020 bigger and better.

Port Augusta will field a team for the first time ever after holding multiple 'come and try' training sessions throughout the year.

Registrations for the upcoming season open on November 1 and the Crystal Brook Football Club is again excited to host the sought-after competition.

At this stage, the league should have eight Senior teams and four Under 16s teams. While the same as last year, the club hopes to have more players on the field.

It will follow the same format as previously, with two matches played at the same.

The club's secretary, Jacinta Huxtable, said they were excited to have interest from new towns like Port Augusta.

"Interest continues to grow," she said.

To coincide with the start of new women's season, the club will be able to use its new lighting as well as showcase its picket fence around the oval.

The new lighting will mean that the games can run later into the night.

Club president, Ian Lambert, said they feedback they had received following the last season was that the competition was put together well. The new season should start in mid February next year.
