Panthers eye fourth place
THEY started the season with just one aim and this week the Pottsville Panthers can claw themselves one step closer to achieving that goal with a victory over Byron Bay at home on the Koala Beach Sports Fields.
Promoted back to Football Far North Coast premier league for a second stint at the start of the season, coach David Lonie had but one desire. “We want to make the semi-finals and we have the squad to do it,” he said.
After a slow start – one win in their opening four contests – the Pottsville machine finally hit top gear, and comprehensive triumphs in their past two outings has them sitting sixth, with a now solid 3-3 win-loss record and a game in hand.
The action begins at 5pm and victory today over third-paced Byron could elevate Lonie’s men to fourth and put them in good stead for Tuesday’s catch-up game with Lismore Workers.
