The Sharks first played in the FFA Cup in 2015, making a magical run where they dispatched Southern Ettalong United FC from the Central Coast, followed by Sydney CBD FC before they lost to Hawkesbury City in the 6th round.

“We enter the FFA Cup this season looking to celebrate some success outside our own competition,” Woonona Sharks Head Coach Dan McGoldrick said.

“The significance of the club turning 130 years old and prestige of the FFA Cup go hand in hand.

“If we put our best foot forward on the night and represent the club with pride, put our name out there, it’s a competition where anything can happen.”
