Socceroo Carl Valeri: Good luck lads!

Socceroo, Melbourne Victory FC and former Tuggeranong United FC junior Carl Valeri has wished Tuggeranong good luck as they put final preparations in place for their Westfield FFA Cup Match, 5 August, against South Hobart FC.

"I can't believe they are playing in the Westfield FFA Cup. Its great", said Carl Valeri, one of Tuggeranong's favourite sons.

"Well done to the players, the fans and the entire club.

It's crazy to think that if Melbourne Victory and Tuggies win their respective matches there is an outside chance we may meet in the Round of 16,", said Carl, as he ponders his own club's match against Bayswater City in Perth on 20 August......

Rowen Forbes-Shepherd; Mitchell MacKenzie; Cameron Doherty; Jonathan Reis; Jon Toole; Chris Ruiz; Sean Kiddey; Matthew Menser; Tim Stewart; Michael Gurney; Muad Zwed; Ethan Munster; Mark DiBitonto; Sean Murphy; Daniel Colbertaldo; Harry Petit; Jordan Glover; and Tomas Ruiz. Coach: Steve Forshaw.

We are one! says coach Steve Forshaw

Loyalty, team unity and a deep desire to do well on the national stage is driving our flagship team as their Westfield FFA Cup fixture nears.

"The team has no silver bullet or star player, but we do have a very close team bond and loyalty to the Club. We are a solid group with many game breakers that can cause problems for the opposition. Our experience winning the 2013 Federation Cup left the taste of success so we are all keen to do well", said TUFC Men's Open team coach Steve Forshaw.

"Both teams have avoided the big guns so not surprisingly we both feel we have a real chance of moving into the round of 16. Whoever delivers good form on the night is likely to win", he said

He expects South Hobart to be difficult opposition, "They appear to play the right way with a strong passing game and good movement of the ball, and pace up front", Steve said.

What is the Westfield FFA Cup?

The 2014 Westfield FFA Cup is the inaugural nation-wide knockout competition involving 22 club team qualifiers from all FFA affiliated State and Territory football federations. They are typically semi-professional or amateur and referred to as Member Federation Clubs. All 10 A-League clubs will take part, making up the 32 qualifiers. Over 600 club qualifiers Australia-wide participated to reach the round of 32. The Northern Territory will enter the competition in 2015.

The Round of 32 is structured so as to ensure that at least four A-League clubs play against a member federation club. Pending match outcomes it is possible for three member federation clubs to make it to the quarterfinals and one to semi-final. This aims to generate exposure at the grassroots level and make this competition a true national event.

The Westfield FFA Cup Final will be held on 16 December 2014.

2014 Westfield FFA Cup

Q&A with Ken Morton, South Hobart FC coach

What do you know of Tuggeranong United FC (TUFC)?

TUFC have quality players, strong overall team and we expect a hard game, and looking forward to it. We will focus at home and show total respect for TUFC.

How are you preparing for the match?

No particular preparation, as we train 3 to 4 times a week anyway. We might get a session in on the day before the match, but this will depend on how players feel after their regular season matches.

How do you describe your playing style?

Sth Hobart pride themselves on teamwork and good football...teamwork, passing and ball possession. Our front line is exciting and scoring goals, with dynamic players behind them and an overall good balance. Our captain Hugh Ludford is a good leader and the squad is young and want to progress.

What are your chances of winning?

Having a home match we obviously want to win. We worked hard last season and again this season so we would be ready for this match when it comes. KGV has a good playing surface and the expected large crowd will also be behind the local team.

However, both teams will fancy their chances with the Canberra League being a little stronger than ours, but the big Hobart crowd will be on hand for the occasion to support the home team.

Any advice for TUFC?

No specific advice except to enjoy the occasion and Tasmania's beauty during your visit.

 

Thanks Ken Morton....good luck to all players on Tuesday 5 August, 7:30pm kick off.
