The first round will be played on the weekend of 15 February 2013.
The draw has brought us...but check it out yourselves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKS2LcIF8G0, go to 6:00 mins for the Northern Pool fixtures to save yourself some time.
Good luck to us!
The Men's Division 2 Preliminary Final at Byron Bay against the Minor Champions has been scheduled for
Friday 14 September, 18:30h at BB1,
which is one of the fields in town.
Let's support the boys and reward them for an already outstanding season, in which they can achieve even more.
In a display of sheer grit and determination Mullumbimby style, the Valleys survived a late Uki onslaught to prevail 2-1 at Uki and end the Pythons' season in Division 2. Going into the game as underdogs, we showed more of the power and speed that had already carried us through our previous finals match when we beat Dunoon 4-2.
Next up will be Byron Bay away next weekend, the Minor Championship winners, who went down 0-1 to Workers through a penalty.
This local derby promises an outstanding encounter, for nothing less than a spot in the Grand Final.
Come in numbers to give our boys the support they deserve, for a brilliant season in a league they did not even nominate for.
As Pine Avenue is not going to be playable due to waterlogged fields, these fixtures have been transferred to Ocean Shores instead:
13/07/2012 19:00 Shores Men’s 6th Div. Pottsville v MBVFC
14/07/2012 11:00 Shores Grade 15/1st Div. MBVFC v Woodburn
14/07/2012 13:00 Shores Mens Third Div. MBVFC v Pottsville
14/07/2012 15:00 Shores Mens Second Div. MBVFC v Lismore Workers
This Saturday, 14 July 2012 at 15:00h, now scheduled at Ocean Shores, MBVFC and Workers kick off the eagerly awaited Division 2 top-of-the-table clash which will decide who takes top spot in the table for now. The current standings:
POS TEAM P W L D F A GD PTS
1 Lismore Workers 9 8 0 1 30 7 23 25
2 Mullumbimby Brunswick 10 8 2 0 42 11 31 24
3 Byron Bay 9 6 3 0 19 16 3 18
Our boys with the league's strongest attack meeting the strongest defence should provide enough drama to watch for anyone.
With Workers having a game in hand, a win would be great for our boys to not lose contact with the unbeaten Lismore side.
Our team are just back from a difficult game at Burringbar, which they won 2-0. This and the very solid season with some powerful attacking football should give us confidence.
The warm-up to the big one will be played from 13:00h, also at Ocean Shores, between our Division 3 side and Pottsville, which makes it a bottom-of-the table dinosaur fight. What more can you ask for?
See you there!
