Your last chance to see Suns women in action
Saturday night is the final opportunity to see the Harvey Norman Coffs Suns State League women's team playing at home.
The State league women's program has been thrown into further disarray following a most unsatisfactory teleconference last week, in which delegates from the southern areas used their voting power to change the location of the competition's central venues.
Originally Coffs Harbour had been allocated a central venue in recognition of the distance we have to travel, the corporate support provided by local businesses to the team, and the level of organisation provided by the local State league committee.
However, self-interest by associations has now seen that venue reallocated to the Hills Association.
As a result of this very disappointing decision, this Saturday night's game will be the last opportunity local fans will have to see the Coffs Harbour women in action on their home court.
Coach Haddon, while still disappointed with the decision, is mindful that a win on Saturday night is essential for the girls to make the finals.
"The change to the State league competition this late in the season is a great disappointment to our players, sponsors and fans," he said.
"All we can do now is turn this disappointment to our advantage and get a good result against the Rebels.
"We had a good win over them in the first round, so I expect a good result on Saturday night.
"A win here will give us even more confidence to take on the southern teams when we meet them in July."
The women's game will be the feature game of the night, tipping off at 7pm.
The Camera House Suns Men will play Gosford Rebels at the earlier timeslot of 5pm.
Once again there will be big giveaways for the crowd, including NBL merchandise from the Cairns Taipans.
We hope to see a big turn out of fans for the two Saturday night games.
