FFA Cup Round 2

Published: 7/03/2018 4:18:00 PM

Competitive football begins this weekend, at least in the FFA Cup campaign.

Maybe not in the ESFA Competition quite yet, however the following games should be well worth a watch around the parks of the East this weekend as our Clubs begin their FFA Cup campaigns.

With Coogee United playing Friday night having drawn Bulli FC who are a progressive premier league club within the South Coast Football Association, this pair up promises to be an entertaining and possibly feisty match.

Saturday 10th March sees four of our Clubs battling over the parks. Waverley Old Boys take on Hornsby Heights FC which looks very promising for WOB on paper! Can the Heights of Hornsby match the power of Waverley? We have the ESFA Derby to look forward to on Saturday as well when Lokomotiv Cove and Randwick City wishing to continue to Round 3 and perhaps let the AAM Championship competition for 2018, know who means business! We are at least comfortable in the knowledge an ESFA Club will continue to round 3. Glebe Wanderers look to be victorious over Yagoona Lions FC from the Bankstown FA. Can the Wanderers elude the Lions attack? All three matches are worth watching!

On Sunday 11th March, Sydney CBD hope to move to the next round by defeating Strathfield FC (Strathfield Strikers). Can the opposition live up to their name?

There are two away games for our Clubs with Glebe Gorillas travelling to Valentines Sports Park on Saturday 10th March to take on Sydney Dragon FC, originally based out of the Australia Chinese Soccer Association before joining GDFA after being premiers in 2014. Which leads us to wonder if herbivorous Gorillas can extinguish fire breathing Dragons in their natural habitats?  Phoenix have to travel somewhat further this weekend, when they look to triumph over Woongarrah Wildcats who are part of the Central Coast FA, at Pluim Park in Lisarow, just past Wyoming. Is this the purrfect start?

Maroubra United and Pagewood Botany have a bye this week, automatically putting them through to round 3.

Where can we see our Clubs in action?
