Premier Men Win FFNC FFA Cup Final
On Tuesday night our Mens Premier team played in the final of the FFNC section of the FFA Cup.
Our men won convincingly 5-0 against Goonellabah and now travel to Coffs Harbour on 16th May for the next round. We are also trying to organise a bus trip for supporters to travel down.
The FFA Cup is an Australian version of the FA Cup in England and is a knock out comp where any club team can participate.
At a certain level the State League teams and A-League teams join the competition but any club team is able to win it if good enough.
Well done Villa and good luck in Coffs!
