Valentine Sports Park is the place to be for FFA Cup action this weekend with 10 matches to take shape at the ground.
Wet weather is the cause of the changes with Valentine’s synthetic surface ensuring games will be played at the ground.
With round three of the competition an opportunity for grassroots club’s, Football NSW’s FFA Cup competition coordinator Connor Ellis said it was important for the clubs to have their shot.
“The beauty of the cup will certainly be present this weekend as you will see association and State League Men clubs from across the state all converge at Glenwood in hoping to secure passage towards round four of the Westfield FFA Cup,” he said.
“With the inclement weather scheduled for this weekend especially, we couldn’t take our chances in losing out on further cup matches, so we were fortunate that the facility was able to act accordingly in confirming these matches to be played on our synthetic surfaces.”
It will be an opportunity for community clubs such as St Patricks, Minchinbury Jets FC, Marayong FC and the Doonside Hawks from Blacktown and District Soccer Football Association, Hills Football Association side North West Sydney FC and Gladesville Hornsby Football Association side from West Pennant Hills Redbacks FC to show their wares in the competition.
