North Coast Football's latest 'Tiger tussle' ends with upset
ALL GOOD things come to those who wait but spare a thought for Westlawn Tigers players who have been waiting almost a year for their long lane to turn.
The battle of the Tiger clubs in men's premier league saw an upset with Westlawn edging Coffs Coast 3-2 in a nail biter.
It was the Clarence Valley club's first outright victory since beating Orara Valley 2-1 on August 2 last year with the only competition points since coming from a 3-3 draw in the local derby with Grafton United on June 9.
President Matt Cheney was stunned by the victory but pleased that the hard work put in by the players and supporters had been rewarded.
"The first round game against Coffs was washed out and this is great for us," he said.
It could be a sign that things are on the turn for North Coast Football's battling club with Cheney just last month receiving the zone's latest volunteer award.
