North Companions crowned 15 Years Champion of Champions

October 10th, 2019

In perfect football conditions, Day 5 of the tournament saw the conclusion of the 15 and 16 Years Boys competition as the community teams battled it out in the Semi-Finals and Finals with North Companions (Northern Inland Football) named winners in the 15 Years, and Alstonville FC (Football Far North Coast) in 16 Years.

After topping the round-robin table, Bellingen FC (Football Mid North Coast) worked their way past Mayfield United (Newcastle Football) in the Semi-Finals, but fell just short against North Companions in the Final, who defeated Maitland JFC (Hunter Valley Football) in the earlier stage.

North Companions’ second-half goals to Will Albertson proved to be the difference as they were named the 15 Years Boys Champion of Champions with a 2-0 win.

In the 16 Years competition, Port FC (Football Mid North Coast) managed to scrape through to the final match after collecting a 1-1 draw against Bolwarra Lorn JSC (Hunter Valley Football) to retain their second place, and they met Football Far North Coast’s Alstonville FC who finished the round-robin stage on top of the table.

The Final was a enthralling, back-and-forth battle, but an extremely early goal to Alstonville’s Sam Green gave them the advantage and in the second half they were able to hold out and add a second, courtesy of Stuart King, to finish their campaign as Champions.

NNSWF Football Events and Operations Coordinator Annalisa Ceccato said it was a brilliant final day of football in the 15 and 16 Years age groups.

“The 15s and 16s age groups Finals were really exciting matches capping off what has been three great days of football,” Ceccato said.

“It’s wonderful to be able have teams from various regions congregating at tournaments like this and hopefully for these players it’s been a rewarding way to finish their 2019 seasons.”
