Bragging rights on line for local double-header

SOCCER: It will be a local double-header this Saturday when Clinton FC takes on Central in the Central Queensland Premier League Division.

With the points table settled for CQPL division one and Clinton taking out minor premiership, Central is holding onto a comfortable fourth position.

Central coach Joel Maudsley said he wanted the team to put in good effort for the dead rubber and keep an eye on the upcoming semi-finals.

"Results won't change anything but we are looking at trying a few things out and possibly rest some players for the following weekend game," Maudsley said.

"Reserves will be out for a good win to help get them ready for the upcoming semi-finals."

Clinton assistant coach Dan Horton said the players were looking forward to the double-header with bragging rights on the line for both games.

"The team will be going for a solid hit out and against Central and they are always an interesting fiery contest," Horton said.

"There's a lot on the line with both games.

"If our reserves can win they will take out minor premiers and in Division one Clinton striker Liam Stephens has taken over as top goal scorer (20) ahead of Centrals Garth Lawrie (17)."

The games are being played at Sun Valley Oval. The division two game is at 5pm and division one at 7pm.
