Murwillumbah Football Club takes impressive weekend win

ANOTHER week, another win for Murwillumbah Football Club.

Coach-captain David Lonie led his team to a 4-2 victory over key player Merrimac in the Gold Coast Premier League yesterday.

The reserves mirrored A-grade's success, scoring an impressive 6-1 domination over their weaker Merrimac opponents.

"We finished 4-2, Merrimac scored two late ones, couple of minor errors," Lonie said.

"Extended our lead (on the ladder) to four points.

"We dominated the game."

 

The club will head to Palm Beach this Saturday to compete, with Lonie avoiding underestimating the opposition, despite Murwillumbah's strong 11 point lead on the ladder.

"The boys are week in, week out, stepping out," he said.

"Just got to keep it going."

Striker Luke Morley will miss Saturday's game due to a trip overseas and Lonie will take the game off to mend a slight muscle tear in his calf.

Despite the player shortfalls, Lonie was confident the team would pick up any slack.

"I think we'll be fine," he said.

"We've got a lot of depth there."

Yesterday's game was accompanied by the unofficial opening of the club's refurbished $500,000 clubhouse.

"It was a good atmosphere," Lonie said.

"There was a big crowd up on the balcony."

He added that he was pleased with spectator numbers, with a strong swarm of loyal supporters turning out to cheer on the club's continued success.
