As many as thirteen Football NSW Association clubs from across the state will learn their FFA Cup fate when the round 5 Preliminary Round draw takes shape on Friday 20th of April at 1pm.
Four Football South Coast Association teams (Albion Park White Eagles, Tarrawanna Blueys SC, Bulli FC, Wollongong Olympic), three Central Coast Football Association teams (Terrigal United, Berkeley Vale SC, Killarney District SC) as well as sole representatives from the Eastern Suburbs (Maroubra United), Gladesville-Hornsby (Gladesville Ravens), Sutherland Shire (Kirrawee Kangeroos FC), Manly (Belrose Terrey Hills Raiders SC), Football Wagga Wagga (Henwood Park FC) and Shoalhaven Association (Bomaderry SC) could face some stiff heavyweight NPL opposition come round 5.
With eleven NPL NSW Men’s clubs remaining alongside five NPL 2, five NPL 3 and six State League Men’s teams left, the probability of this outcome happening will certainly be high.
