Time to Strike up Chal­lenge

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - SPORT -

MORE than 40 teams from across NSW and Queens­land have con­verged on Nam­bucca Heads for the re­gion’s big­gest and old­est pre-sea­son tour­na­ment.

The 39th An­nual Chal­lenge Cup hosted by the Nam­bucca Strikers is fac­ing a chal­lenge at Coronation Park.

Nev­er­the­less last years Open Men’s win­ners West Pym­ble have re­turned in pur­suit of back-to-back titles.

Nam­bucca pres­i­dent Paul Cue said hav­ing West Pym­ble re­turn is a ma­jor draw­card for the event.

“West Pym­ble bring a cer­tain qual­ity to all the divi­sions they play in, which is what you want for such a big event,” Cue said.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to an­other big year. The men and women (opens) play Satur­day and Sun­day and the over-35s men play Fri­day and Satur­day night.

“And of course, Satur­day night cel­e­bra­tions are held at the Nam­bucca Leagues and Sports club with live en­ter­tain­ment.”

The Nam­bucca Strikers are en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one in the lo­cal foot­ball com­mu­nity to get out and sup­port the event promis­ing plenty of good foot­ball on show.
