Jimboomba Redbacks celebrated the opening of their new facility with a strong win over Morningside in AFL action on Saturday.

The Redbacks women triumphed 4-5-29 to 2-1-13 in a solid display.

Jessica Pickles was outstanding in her first game, winning the player of the match award.

Hayley Milne, Larni Milne, Narelle Smith and Jasmine Fretwell booted majors for the Redbacks.

Team manager Kerri Alford said the result was down to the hard work the women had put in on the training paddock.

"The team has been training exceptionally hard over the past 10 months to finally take the field after the season was interrupted due to coronavirus," Alford said.

It was a fitting celebration for the opening of the club's new changerooms, a facility which cost more than $800,000.

A large crowd was on hand for the first match, with a loud cheer accompanying the players onto Glenlogan Park.

The senior men had a huge win over Yeronga on Friday night, winning 126-8 in the away match.

The club's youth teams kick off their season on July 19.
