Mid-North Coast Final to be a thriller

The Mid-North Coast District Pennant final is set to be a thriller this weekend with Bonville out to dethrone defending champions, Coffs Harbour.

The two teams have met once this year with Coffs Harbour getting the win, four matches to 1 at home.

Bonville didn’t get the opportunity to extract revenge in the home and away rounds due to a washout, so are keen to reverse the result in this Sunday’s final at Nambucca Heads.

Mid-North Coast District Captain Don Penson expects the final to be a passionate affair.

“It will be a pretty intense game; there’s a lot of rivalry between these two clubs,” Mr Penson said. “Bonville are out to square the ledger.”

Penson believes the result will be close.?? “It could go either way; I can’t pick a winner,” he said. ”I’m just hoping for a good, fair match.”

The Bonville team, led by their head teaching professional Richie Gallichan, also includes Bill Stocks, Adam Wood, Grant Rickwood and Paul Gallagher.

The Coffs Harbour team includes some district representatives including Jack Poutney, Shane Cutmore, Don Swain, Tim Hyland and Mark Bringle.

Play will get underway at 8.30am on Sunday morning at Nambucca Heads Golf Club.
