Discipline after Alstonville clash
A DISCIPLINARILY investigation meeting by Football Far North Coast on Wednesday night has identified alleged troublemakers involved in a fracas in the final minutes of the Tumbulgum-Alstonville game in Alstonville two weeks ago. Football Far North Coast general manager Matt Kelso said the association was now considering its course of action. "The situation is that we have identified who we believe were the people alleged to be involved in the incidents and we will be considering the disciplinary sanction," Kelso said.
"Notification will come to the clubs on Monday."
Meanwhile, on the other side of the border, a meeting of the Gold Coast Soccer board has decided not to expand the premier league competition from 10 to 12 teams. The move affects Murwillumbah Services, who finished last in premier league and will be sent back to first division next year, and Tugun who was second in first division this season. "It is still up for discussion. "But you have got to give clubs at least nine months notice a season's notice before making a change," Gold Coast Soccer Chairman Peter Gray said. "We are still looking at a two up two down promotion for premier league, but again that would be a season away."
Coomera has been promoted to premier league after beating Southport on Thursday, with Murwillumbah relegated.
