Golden City must fight for the Cup

GOLDEN City Football Club is down, but not out, of the Meccano Cup final.

The Gympie side lost 6-3 to Bundaberg’s Across the Waves on Saturday afternoon in front of a home crowd at Gympie’s One Mile Oval.

Golden City needs to win by four goals in the return match against Across the Waves in Bundaberg to clinch the title of the best club side in Wide Bay. The title is decided over two games and the team with the best combined score over the two games is awarded the Cup.

Player-coach Darryl Cash said his young side would have to play extremely well if they were going to take the title from Bundaberg now.

“We need to score at least four goals,” Cash said.

“We scored three on Saturday. We just need to stop them from scoring.”

He said it was a big ask, but the team would travel to Bundaberg with a positive attitude.

The Meccano Cup is a new competition designed to put Wide Bay clubs from Gympie, Maryborough, Hervey Bay and Bundaberg up against each other.
