PLAY­ERS of the Whit­sun­day Foot­ball Club’s pre­mier men’s squad were back in ac­tion for the third round of the men’s Foot­ball Queens­land Cup in Mackay on Fri­day night.

The team was com­ing off the back of an im­pres­sive 10-1 win over West United in the sec­ond round but were un­able to come away with the win, go­ing down to the Mag­pies 6-3.

This re­sult in the third round means the pre­mier men’s team is now out of con­tention in the FQ Cup.

The WFC will of­fi­cially kick off their 2014 sea­son this Satur­day, March 22, with their first home game to be played at the Bowen Sport­ing Grounds.

The club’s home ground is the Whit­sun­day Sports Park but as the team has sev­eral play­ers who live in Bowen, the club took the op­por­tu­nity to play at the high qual­ity fields.

In other news, the club will be hold­ing a sea­son launch at the Side­walk Cafe in Air­lie Beach tonight (Thurs­day, March 20) from 6.30pm. At the launch club pres­i­dent Steve Tween will ad­vise what the up­com­ing sea­son has in store and the cap­tains and vice cap­tains will be an­nounced for the four se­nior WFC teams.

The club has nom­i­nated teams in the pre­mier men, pre­mier women, re­serves men and di­vi­sion two men to com­pete in the Mackay Re­gional Foot­ball Zone com­pe­ti­tion.

For more in­fro­ma­tion, WFC club man­ager An­nette Tween on 0409 963 220.
