For the NSW clubs that remain, the anticipation is building knowing they require just two more victories to be granted their spot in the 2016 Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32.
Round 6 commenced last night (Tuesday) as Bankstown Berries edged out St George FA 2-1 in extra time at the Ilinden Sports Centre. The remaining eight matches will take place tonight (Wednesday, 4 May).
One of a few ‘David and Goliath’ battles in Round 6 will take place at Cromer Park on Wednesday, when PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues 1 NSW Men’s side Manly United host Killarney Districts FC from the Central Coast Football Association.
Manly United are sitting comfortably in 4th spot on the league ladder after a solid start to the season, and have had a rather comfortable run in the early stages of the Cup, manoeuvring past two other Local Association sides during the early rounds in Gladesville Ravens and Glebe Gorillas.
With the odds heavily stacked in Manly’s favour in each of these Cup matches, Killarney District will surely be out to prove that they are a banana peel waiting to be stepped on, given their previous three rounds have included victories against state league opposition in Stanmore Hawks (4-2) and Mt Druitt Town Rangers (4-2 aet).
The second local Association club side still remaining in the Cup is from the Manly Warringah Football Asociation, and they will be in action on the same night at the same complex, at Cromer Park, over on Field No.2.
Mosman FC will play host to Mounties Wanderers, from the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues 2 NSW Men’s competition, and will be hoping to topple their more fancied opponents and continue their fairy tale run in this year’s Cup.
