October 2017 sees the return of the Central Coast’s favourite Premier 5-a-side league! Once again, Soccer5s has teamed up with AnytimeFitness to provide the exceptional prize of $5000 to the winner of the competition and we are expecting another season of high energy, highly entertaining and quality 5-a-side football here at Soccer5s Tuggerah!
But before we kick off this year’s season, let’s take a look back on last year’s competition and reminisce on old times. The 2016/17 season was perhaps the highest in quality that we’ve had in recent years with teams from many of the Central Coast Football’s top grade represented and even the Central Coast Mariners Academy fielding teams. This meant all 5 games in the evening would be hotly contested and the coveted prize of 1st place and the cash prize was up for grabs. We had Australian National Champions Norfolk n Chance up against the current reigning champions The Return of the Kings in the first fixture of the season with Norfolk taking that one 6-2.
As we headed into the final few weeks of the competition, it was clear who’d be likely to take out the competition with both Norfolk and Return of the Kings looking strong as well as Ham and Cheese as well as Matty Crowell’s Retirement FC team. And it would be these 4 teams that would make it into the final week of finals with Norfolk taking on Retirement FC and Return of the Kings battling it out against Ham and Cheese. Return of the Kings saw off Ham and Cheese with a dominant 5-1 win whilst Norfolk were taken to extra time to defeat Retirement FC 4-3. So it was a repeat of the first league fixture for our Grand Final. Norfolk had already secured the Premiers Title and were looking to seal the double. Return of the Kings were looking to defend their title.
And as we all know now, the Return of the Kings lived up to their namesake and defeated the National Champions 2-0 to defend their title for the 3rd time in as many years.
Who will take on the 2017-18 season though? Think you’re good enough to mix it with the big boys? Reckon you’ve got what it takes to take on the McGinley’s? Want to give Crowell a run for his money?Sign up for the league and we’ll get you taking on the best of the best!
