Miners and Roar face off at home

GYMPIE Miners ladies side will have a chance to show their football talents when they take on the Roar under-20 side tomorrow afternoon.

Coach Mike Donaldson is urging all football supporters to make their way to One Mile for the 3pm match.

He said there would be some quality football on show with some future Australian players taking to the number one field.

The coach of the Roar Jeff Hopkins is a former professional English footballer and used to be the Matildas (Australian womens) coach.

He is now the Queensland Academy head coach and contracted with the Roar. Donaldson organised the friendly match earlier in the year while he was coaching the Wide Bay under-16 side in Mackay.

“I asked him if he would like to be involved in a friendly in Gympie,” Donaldson said.

“He agreed.”

The Roar is making a day of it in Gympie holding coaching clinics during the day before the game.

“It will be great for the Miners and Gympie football,” Donaldson said.

“We don’t get to play this quality of team very often. It is a chance for the Gympie girls to show their stuff in front of a quality team.”

The match kicks off at One Mile ovals at 3pm.
