Namoi League – Round 5 Review

June 1st, 2021

Narrabri FC remain undefeated at the top of the Namoi League competition after a 3-1 win in the derby at Hogan Oval.

Wearing the traditional blue, Narrabri were forced to come from behind to secure the result, after Bailey Campbell found the net for the Elevens in the first half.

Blake Jarrett had the competition heavyweights back in command early in the second after he grabbed two quick goals. Tom Holland put the result to bed late in the match.

The Elevens next week make the trip to Cook Park to tackle Wee Waa, while Narrabri are at home to Moree, who secured its first win of the season on Saturday.

At home, Moree coach Matthew Urquhart described his side’s performance across both grades as “probably the best I have seen it from one end to the other this season.”

“Overall, reserve grade their passing was really good… They started taking a few more shots than they had been the last few weeks,” he said.

“In first grade our passing, our combinations, and our talk overall has improved from the first game to now…. It is good to see the things we are doing at training are starting to come out on the field.”

Urquhart himself bagged three as the side moved equal on points with the Elevens though ahead on goal-difference.

Moree return to Narrabri next weekend for their match, while Wee Waa are at home to Narrabri Elevens.

“Hopefully they have gained a stack of confidence out of the game we played on Saturday, and just remember to take what we do at training… Take that out on the park and contest those 50:50 balls we previously haven’t,” Urquhart said.
