FNSW Champion of Champions – Quarter Finals!
After the long weekend off, we return to action in the Champion of Champions Quarter Finals this Sunday 7th October!
3 teams have made it this far… Flying the flag for our seniors are our Women and O35 Championship teams and from our juniors, the U15’s. A lot of our senior players are looking to win the CoC again…. see below!!
It’s a short trip over the bridge for our O35’s and U15’s who are playing Seniors – North Sydney United Football Club at Charles Bean Sports field, with the U15’s first up at 10.15 followed by our O35’s at 11.45.
Having completed the ESFA league and Grand Final double, our O35’s will be looking to win a FNSW O35 competition for the first time after coming close in the FNSW State Cup in 2016 when we were runners up. (A lot of this current squad do have experience of winning the CoC in their younger years as All Age Championship players when we won in 2008 and 2014. How many can you name?)
2016 also saw our opponents this Sunday finish runners up in the FNSW Champion of Champions so expect a high quality game and with Matty Pickover passing a fitness test, it should be a high scoring game considering North Sydney scored 8 (eight) goals in the 2nd half in the previous round to win 9-1.
This year is the first time that any of our junior teams qualified for the CoC and our U15’s had a great 2-1 win in the last round and confidence is high that they can make it even further.
Head over the bridge on Sunday and support both teams!
Our Women, who are no strangers to FNSW competition wins having won the State Cup in 2015 and CoC in 2016, (new coach, how many players looking to get their 2nd win?) have a slighter longer trip up to the Central Coast to play Gosford City Football Club. A tough game awaits them but Mini will have them fired up to take a step further to a trophy he has yet to win.
