THE Whit­sun­day Foot­ball Club’s pre­mier men are one step closer to tack­ling Bris­bane’s best af­ter ad­vanc­ing to the Mackay zone fi­nal of the Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion Australia (FFA) Cup.

WFC mid­fielder Lathan Dunn put on a clinic against Cru­saders on Satur­day night, bag­ging four goals in the team’s con­vinc­ing 5-0 victory.

Joel Smith also found the back of the net, as WFC used a three-goal first-half to all but seal the re­sult in­side 45 min­utes.

On pa­per the em­phatic 5-0 score line ap­pears con­vinc­ing, but WFC direc­tor of foot­ball Eric Thomp­son said the play­ers ac­knowl­edged it wasn’t their best ef­fort.

“The most im­por­tant thing was the re­sult it­self be­cause the play­ers un­der­stand they didn’t re­ally play well,” he said.

“They got the re­sult and they’re look­ing to get bet­ter which is en­cour­ag­ing for me.”

Satur­day’s FFA Cup match against Cru­saders was just the club’s third game of the year, so there’s still rust to work through.
