Round 5 of the FFA Cup Preliminary Round of matches will commence on Wednesday 3rd of March with a handful of matches taking place across Sydney.
In a great statistic, as many as thirteen Football NSW Association clubs from across the state including 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 Kangaroos FC), Manly (Belrose Terrey Hills Raiders SC), Football Wagga Wagga (Henwood Park FC) and Shoalhaven Association (Bomaderry SC) are all still in contention of a place in round 6 of the Preliminary round draw.
A few exciting clashes have been announced with two all NPL NSW Men’s affairs taking shape, one at Seymour Shaw as the Sutherland Sharks take on Hakoah Sydney City East while at Cromer Park a massive encounter will feature 2017 Champions Manly United tackle red-hot Blacktown City who in recent seasons, have had fantastic runs in the FFA Cup Round of 32 and beyond.
It will be a tough task but Football Wagga Wagga’s Henwood Park FC will travel to Edensor Park where they will face NPL NSW Men’s outfit Sydney United 58 while Gladesville-Hornsby FA’s Gladesville Ravens will travel to Sydney West where they will battle NPL NSW Men’s side Marconi Stallions.
An all association affair will however dominate the headlines as Shoalhaven’s Bomaderry SC will host Central Coast Football’s Killarney District SC while giantkillers Kirrawee Kangaroos from the Sutherland Shire FA who recently knocked out State League Men’s side Nepean FC, will hope they can inflict the same pain on the Balmain Tigers FC.
