An early look at the weekend’s games due to football being played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
On Friday, the State League season kicks off as Mandurah City host newly promoted Gosnells City. Mandurah, fresh from the night series win, should be regarded as hot favourites for this game, but Gosnells may still have the momentum from their promotion for last year. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
Saturday is a busy day for football. At 11am, Mandurah City play Gosnells City in the State League Under 18’s at home, while Rockingham City travel to Forrestfield United. Both games kick off at 11am.
At 1pm, the same fixtures happen, but in the State League Reserves League, while at 3pm, Rockingham City kick off their State League program at Forrestfield United. Forrestfield United didn’t have the best night series this year and were knocked out by division 2 side Swan United in the Australia Cup last week, so Rockingham must feel they have a great chance of winning this game.
There are also two other games that kick off at 3pm on Saturday. At Kelly Park, Kwinana, Peel United play Port Kennedy for a place in the semi-final of the Men’s Amateur Night series competition. Peel need win to progress while Port Kennedy just need a point. as announced earlier in the week, there will always be action at Lark Hill on Saturday as the Perth Glory NPL side are using the venue as its base for the season and on Saturday, they host Armadale in the NPL.
Sunday only has the one game of note and what an important game it is. Port Kennedy’s Womens League side are in the semi-final of the Night Series and take on UWA Nedlands. Kick off for this game is at 5pm and is being played at the home of UWA Nedlands.
As ever, we wish all our teams the best of luck.
