Nambucca Challenge Cup This Weekend

March 17th, 2016

THE 38th annual Challenge Cup of football kicks off this weekend at Coronation Park, Nambucca Heads. Thirty-seven teams will take part across three divisions.

Tomorrow night the Over 35s Men’s division will open proceedings with the hosts, Nambucca Strikers, in action at 6 o’clock. There will be eight teams competing in the division, including squads from Sydney and Glen Innes.

Saturday starts bright and early with local lads the Nambucca Strikers kicking off against NOBFC in the Men’s Opens division from 8.30am. This will be the Nobs (Nambucca Old Boys) sixth time at the cup with the game between past and present generations always providing a spectacle.

Other teams competing this year in the Men’s Opens are multiple winners West Pymble and Coffs United, although this year Premier League powerhouses Urunga will be a strong contender. There will also be representation from as far afield as Strathfield, Armidale and Tuncurry. The men’s competition will conclude on Sunday afternoon and with such a stellar line-up this year, the final promises to be a belter.

The women’s competition sees 13 entrants compete including local teams Nambucca Old Girls, Macksville and Urunga. Port Macquarie, Metford and Armidale will add to the quality line-up and provide high-octane football from 8am on Saturday.

All spectators are encouraged to come down and support their team.

On Saturday night, the major sponsor of the Challenge Cup, the Nambucca Sports and Leagues Club, will  host, with band Bleeding Tendencies providing the entertainment.
