Gladstone soccer teams match it with more-fancied rivals

GLADSTONE'S junior soccer stars have shown they have the ability to mix it with the best central Queensland has to offer and are looking to build on their beginning to the InterCity Cup.

The first round for the Gladstone players was held on May 11, with four teams playing at Norbridge Park in Rockhampton.

Gladstone had a win, a draw and two losses in the four age groups, and one was a narrow 3-2 loss in the under-12s.

Coach Joe Fenech said Gladstone would only get stronger as the competition progressed, and he was impressed especially by the under-13 match, which ended scoreless.

"Tactically and technically it was a very high standard, an absolute pleasure to watch," he said.

"It was a great day and great venue."

Gladstone's next match will be a home fixture on Sunday, June 1, with the venue and opposition yet to be decided.

The team has had several weeks off since round one.
