Na­tional stage set for Ar­madale cup ac­tion

Comment News (Armadale) - - Sport -

AR­MADALE has made it into the FFA Cup Round of 32 af­ter down­ing ECU Joondalup in a thriller on the night of June 4.

De­spite the down­pour, a packed Al­fred Skeet Re­serve en­joyed an ex­hil­a­rat­ing, high-scor­ing match that ended with a grip­ping 3-2 win to Ar­madale.

Af­ter the game, Ar­madale coach John O’Reilly said he was “prob­a­bly the proud­est man in the world”.

“The play­ers put in a great per­for­mance and I thought we de­served the win,” he said.

“The win re­ally hasn’t sunk in yet, but putting us on that na­tional stage, I’m ab­so­lutely de­lighted for the pres­i­dent Ken (Made­ley) and ev­ery­one in­volved in this foot­ball club.”

The win also booked Ar­madale a place in its first ever State Cup fi­nal, to be played against Gwelup on July 14.

Costello said the re­sult was great for the club and its sup­port­ers.

“It’s not just reach­ing the State League Cup fi­nal, we’re in the last 32 of the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion and it will be great to get our club on the na­tional stage,” he said.
