WYATT Avenue in suburban Belrose isset to explode on Wednesday, April 11 when Banksia Tigers make their way to the northern beaches toplay in the FFA Cup.
It promises to be an unforgettable evening of grassroots football, with BTH Raiders’ giant-killing AL/1s men’s squadlining up versus their opposition from the local St George Premier League.
BTH coach Nate Gray was happy to adopt the underdog status, despite his team thrashing Minchinbury 12-0 last start.
“I’ve done my homework and they (Banksia) have plenty of good players,” he said ahead of the fourth round tussle.
“Ibrahim Haydar is key for them, he played for Sydney United and Marconi in his heyday.
“They also have a couple of top level players with NSW NPL 1 experience, so they will be favourites, we will just do our best.”
Manly United face a difficult assignment when they tackle Mt Druitt Rangers at Cromer Park next Wednesday, April 4 from 7.30pm.
