Clinton sends CQPL semi-final warning

SOCCER: Clinton FC made a point why they are on top of the Central Queensland Premier League Division table with a comprehensive 12-0 win over Southside United.

With five of their regular starters out of the team, Clinton sent a message to the opposition teams they are ready for the upcoming semi-finals.

Clinton assistant coach, Dan Horton said the team is fine tuning for the upcoming semi-finals.

"It was a great performance with five players out including co-captains Mitch Innocend and Chris Hill," Horton said.

"The team still managed to 12 goals past a good Southside team."

Clinton scored in the first five minutes and never looked back with a more than comfortable win.

"It was a complete performance from a team which opened the scoring inside five minutes and never 'took the foot off' from that point on," Horton said.

"Captain Josh Noonan was well supported by sweeper Ryan Crawford and young guns Tom Hanson, Josh Finlay and Tai Doran who all put in performances belying their experience."

Now with the final round of fixtures being played this weekend, Clinton are still working on its team to finalise on

"Our focus now turns to this weekend's local derby against Central, a game we will use to fine tune our finals preparation," Horton said.

The final round of the fixtures are on this Saturday night with Clinton and Central FC hosting a local derby match at Sun Valley Oval with the game kicking off at 7pm.
