Globe favoured in 11.30am final with the Wolves
FOOTBALL: Minor premiers Globe Accounting will go into Saturday's premier grade grand final in Warwick Wolves football on the back of 10 successive wins.
Noah Dwan and Jacob Walters are two of the stars of the Globe team which is coached by Mark Brunt.
Dwan is a midfielder and sets up a lot of the play while Walters is in defence and Michael Brunt is hard to beat in goal.
Furniture Zone Force coach Chris Newley said the team had its regular Thursday afternoon training session this week. "We usually get 10 of our 12 players at training which makes it a lot easier to build combinations,” he said.
In the first round of the finals, Furniture Zone lost 5-3 to Globe and then beat Voyage Fitness 2-1 in the preliminary final.
"Cameron Mackinnon was extremely strong in defence against Voyage Fitness and captain Mitch Scheiwe was strong in midfield.”
Furniture Zone won the early games of the season against Globe before the minor premiers started their run of 10 straight.
In the 12/13 years age group, Repco went through the regular season undefeated and then lost 3-0 in the qualifying final to Nutmeg Networks.
In the preliminary final, the score was 2-all at half-time before Repco dominated in the second half against Creed and Lang.
The grand final coaches are Majella Roche (Repco) and Kaitlyn Newley (Nutmeg).
All of the younger players in non-competitive grade will play on grand final day as a forerunner to the presentation of trophies in all age groups tomorrow.
Under-12/under 13 grand final at 9am, premier at 11.30am Sunday.
Happy with season
WARWICK Wolves president Cameron Davey is upbeat about the success of the 2019 football season.
"We had a successful junior season with a lot of even teams in all age groups,” he said.
"Warwick sent teams to six or eight carnivals as far away as Dalby.”
The Warwick District Football Association president said the best numbers were in the younger age groups.
"We have a lot of volunteers who helped out this season but are always looking for more,” he said.
At this stage, the association is keen on some junior clinics in January and February next year. "We put some money in for fertiliser on the fields in the off season and they have held up well in the dry weather,” he said.
Next season, Davey hopes to increase the number of teams in age groups from four years to open men and women.
Warwick is favoured to win the Toowoomba Football conference grade grand final on Sunday against St Albans at 9am at Clive Berghofer Stadium in Toowoomba.
Davey said the association was currently working through a strategic plan.
"We will be looking at the development of our facilities and the construction of a clubhouse on the mound on the northern side of the dressing rooms, office and canteen,” Davey said.
Live-stream on Sunday
THE Daily News will kick a game defining goal for the Warwick Wolves this weekend.
