Bulls set for semis
THE Mareeba United Football Club premier men’s have officially secured their place in the semi-finals after a 4-1 win over Marlin Coast.
Coach Kane Alderson said the win had the team filled with confidence as they head into the finals.
“We knew playing against Marlin Coast they had nothing to play for, but they wanted to finish their season on a high as well,” he said.
“We kept control of the game for the whole 90 minutes and we played well and kept that momentum going.”
Throughout the past few games, Alderson has noticed significant improvements in the players’ mentalities, helping them secure each much-needed win.
As they spend the next two weeks preparing for the semi-finals against Edge Hill, Alderson said he was proud of their achievements and hoped their successful streak continued into their final games.
“I’m proud of them and I am proud of what the boys have achieved, especially finishing second in the league,” he said.
“But as I said to the boys on Saturday night, we haven’t won anything yet, so we still have a long way to go.
“We’ve got to refocus now. Semi-final football is a different type of football, so now we must focus.”
