BOAMBEE Bombers are one of five teams representing the North Coast in the inaugural Coastal Premier League, which is set to kick off on Saturday, March 28.
The CPL is a Men’s Premier League competition combining four of the best teams from the Mid North Coast – including Macleay Valley Rangers and Port United FC – with five Premier League men’s teams from the Coffs Harbour area.
The CPL will become the most elite league for 18,000 participants combined in the Mid North Coast and North Coast Zones.
The Bombers head into the season as one of our region’s best chances of taking out the competition, having won the double in 2019, which culminated in a 2-0 North Coast Premier League grand final win over Woolgoolga Wolves.
Head Coach Jon Fergusson said his team is buoyed by confidence following a string of good pre-season results.
“We played Wallis Lake in the FFA Cup Round 3 over the weekend, they are a strong team, they played good football and dominated the first 30 minutes of the match.”
“We found our way into the game and played well. I’m glad to have 90 minutes in testing conditions, these are teams we will come up against when the (CPL) season starts, so it’s good to get an early run against them.”
Boambee ran out 4-2 winners against Wallis Lake, which sees them progress to the FFA Cup Round 4 tie, where they face another Coastal Premier League side Port Saints FC.
“It’s going to be a challenging competition this year, I’m looking forward to the new structure of men’s premier football on the coast.”
