North Coast Football took on Football Mid North Coast in three age divisions today in the first use of the new synthetic pitches in Coffs Harbour.
Although not officially opened yet, Coffs Harbour City Council granted North Coast Football permission to use the pitches for the trial matches.
The new pitches got the thumbs up from players, coaches and spectators.
The pitches are all weather and proved their value today with periods of rain throughout the three matches. With the overnight rain, had the pitches not been available, the matches would have been cancelled.
