Broadmeadow Magic Qualify For The Westfield FFA Cup Round Of 32

Broadmeadow Magic FC have qualified to represent Northern NSW in the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 for the 3rd time after defeated North Coast Football Premier League outfit, Coffs City United FC, three goals to one at the Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility.

With both teams only having 1 days’ rest, both coaches elected to make changes to their starting line ups which took the park on Saturday for Round 6. Broadmeadow had the better of the first half, controlling large amounts of possession and creating a number of chances which they were unable to convert with the score remaining nil-nil at the break.

With a chance to regroup at half time, Broadmeadow came out for the second half looking to make amends for the missed opportunities in the first half. Shane Paul ensured they wouldn’t have to wait long, picking up the scraps after placing a shot in the bottom right hand corner to give Broadmeadow the lead.

Coffs City refused to drop the heads, hitting back straight away courtesy of Nick Lambert (48’) who volleyed home after a 30 yard strike from Scott Goddard was parried by Magic keeper, Nick Giantsopoulos. Despite the setback, Broadmeadow took control of the match as Coffs showed signs of tiring after their extra time win over Cardiff City Tigers on Saturday.

Magic would restore their lead in the 69th minute with after James Virgili hammered a bouncing ball into the bottom left hand corner after Jon Griffiths drove into the area before cutting the ball back. Broadmeadow would seal the match in the 87th minute when James Virgili was able to get on the end of a long ball and bundle the ball passed the Coffs keeper, extending the Magic lead.

In the last match of Round 7, Edgeworth Eagles FC take on Maitland FC Tuesday 13th June at 7:00pm, with the venue T.B.A

The winner will join Broadmeadow Magic FC as a representative of Northern NSW Football in the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32.

The Westfield FFA Cup provides PS4 NPL Northern NSW clubs and Northern NSW Club teams the opportunity to progress to the Round of 32 and the chance to play off against Preliminary Round club-based winners from fellow states, as well as Hyundai A-League Clubs
