Mur’bah Footy Club edges toward unprecedented victory

UNDEFEATED premiers is a title hard to come by, but Murwillumbah Football Club is well on the way to the historic accomplishment.

With 17 undefeated games under their belt this season in the Gold Coast Premier League the club are almost guaranteed a premiership win.

They lead nearest competitor Broadbeach by 12 points on the ladder and it would take a disastrous final four games for the club to sacrifice their first premiership in the club's history.

"We're undefeated, there's four games of the season left and we're 12 points ahead," Captain-coach David Lonie said.

"We'd have to lose every game and Broadbeach would have to win every game and get 30 goals to take the premiership."

You can't get ahead of yourself, but we would love to get an undefeated season.

Confident, but not overly so, Lonie said the club were taking things one game at a time.

"Always had the attitude of one game at a time," he said.

"You can't get too ahead of yourself, but we would love to get an undefeated season."

The club will take on Mudgeeraba on June 27 and Lonie was hopeful the historic streak would continue, despite some injuries plaguing the team.

"Mathew Pete blew out his shoulder at training," he said.

"There's a few guys with niggling injuries...but the boys have got it in them.

"We've got the depth to step up and really bring it to them."

Lonie was proud to say the close-knit community in Murwillumbah had banded together to support the club wholeheartedly this season.

"There's a lot more supporters turning up to our games," he said.

"It's great to see the attendance at games; it really stirs the boys on.

"It seems like the whole community is getting behind us."

The club's reserve grade is also in the top four teams in their competition and it's likely they will also make the semi-finals.

"I'm proud of the efforts of the players and club officials this year," Lonie said.

"We've already created a bit of history."

Despite the club's field being destroyed by a reckless driver recently, it appears the success story just keeps on unfolding for Murwillumbah Football Club.
