Kings back on track

TWEED Valley Kings got their Gold Coast soccer Premier League season somewhat back on track with a good work out on the paddock last week.

Earlier in the week TVK posted a solid 5.2 win over Gold Coast Knights in a deferred round 2 fixture and followed up with a luckless 2-2 against Mudgeeraba on Saturday at Sid Biggs Oval.

The Kings dominated for most of the match and created many scoring opportunities but the men up front were only able to beat the opposition goalkeeper on two occasions, squandering a host of scoring chances with poor finishing.

But for being off target, the Kings could have run out victors by three or four goals at least.

Best for the Kings were teenager Tom Gladwin who has grabbed with both hands his opportunity to play in the top grade - he keeps improving every match.

Ably supporting the youngster at the back were fullbacks Ben Blair, returning from injury, and Aaron Hodges.

In first division action, unbeaten Murwillumbah FC continued on their merry way with a solid 2-0 victory over Tugun at Betty Diamond Field on Saturday.

They now hold pride of place on the ladder on 9 points, two ahead of previously unbeaten duo Griffith Uni and Tweed United who split the points after a rollicking 5-5 draw score-athon at Keith Hunt Park on Saturday.
