Kemps Creek fielded a record six teams in this year’s State Cup. All sides performed admirably with the Under 12s finishing semi-finalists, Under 17s quarter-finalists, and the remaining teams losing in tight contests on penalties or in extra time.
The other success story was Bill Anderson Reserve being granted hosting rights for Round 2, Round 3 and Quarter-final fixtures, totally 14 games across three Sundays. Club President Ross Maiorana was upbeat when asked about his thoughts on this year’s State Cup.
“State Cup is giving opportunities for teams to compete with the best in the state. To have six teams all playing competitive football was outstanding, and to host three weekends at Bill Anderson Reserve was great for our Club and its exposure. We might be just a little Club in the sticks to some, but we can proudly say we hold our own in the playing ranks and as a football venue”, Mairorana said.
“It’s encouraging to see the hard work put in and the time invested by players, officials and parents at the Club providing positive results and outcomes like these”, he added.
