So, after the state league season kicked off last season, its now time for more teams to go into battle this weekend.
We start our preview looking at Saturday’s state league games. Thankfully, there is some action in the area, when Mandurah City will try to get their first win of the season as the play host to Fremantle City. Speaking to the excellent http://www.footballwa.net/ website, Mandurah skipper Harry Collins said it was disappointing to come away empty handed after a good performance against Olympic, but they took a lot from the game moving forward. “There were plenty of positives to take away from it,” he said. “I thought we were unlucky with the final score line, and it could have gone either way at the end but that’s football.” The league is tight his season, and the Dolphins are one of many sides who could challenge for the title, and Collins said having the experience of Head Coach on the park is a huge plus, and after strengthening their squad in the off season, they are all looking forward to returning home and playing in front of their supporters. “We added a few quality players to strengthen our side from last season’s team, and the way pre-season went and the experience and back ground John brings, I don’t see why we can’t be challenging for the title,” the skipper said. “We will be looking to bounce back after last week in front of a big home crowd in Mandurah. Which we all look forward too.”
Meanwhile, Rockingham City are on the road again. While their Lark Hill club house is getting a make over, Rocky will be away to UWA Nedlands, also looking for their first win of the season. Both games kick off at 3pm.
There is a cup game happening on Sunday. In the Hyundai Women’s Metropolitan Cup, a nice local derby is in store as Rockingham United host Port Kennedy at 1pm.
Before any of the weekend action takes place, Port Kennedy’s Metro team are away to Ballajura on Friday night with a 6.30pm kick off
