Clinton FC hungry for grand-final victory

SOCCER: Clinton FC will be out for double grand-final glory tomorrow night when Division One and Two take on northern rivals Capricorn Coast FC and Frenchville.

Clinton Division One will play for the prestigious Wesley Hall Cup as the symbol of soccer supremacy in the Central Queensland Premier League.

Clinton assistant coach Dan Horton said players were keen to claim victory.

"We are looking forward to playing Capricorn Coast at home and we aren't too concerned about them and how they will play.” Horton said.

"The players need to concentrate on their own games and make sure they deliver on the day.”

Co-captains Chris Hill and Mitch Innocend will be expected to lead the way with strong performances.

Meanwhile big games from midfielder Anthony Cobb and Golden Boot winner Liam Stephen will go a long way to ensure a win for the home team.

Horton said he was confident the players had the firepower to go from minor premiers to premiership winners.

"We have been the best team all year and we want to prove that this weekend with a stellar performance when it matters most on the biggest stage of all,” he said.

Clinton Division Two coach Brad O'Sullivan said the final would be evenly matched between the competition's top two teams. "It will be a close, tough game and it will come down to who performs well on the day to win,” O'Sullivan said.

"Several of our key players Michael Stephen, Nathan Cogg and Chris McDougal will all have to lift for the game and the rest of the team to win it.”

The CQPL finals kick-off at Clinton Fields with Division Two at 5pm and Division One at 7pm.
