Alstonville racks up big win

ALSTONVILLE FC sent a warning to Football Far North Coast rivals ahead of the coming season with a 6-1 thumping of Goonellabah in the Tursa Employment and Training Anzac Cup match yesterday.

It was a day of big wins in the pre-season tournament, with Byron Bay also sending out an ominous message ahead of 2013 action.

The Byron Bay Rams dished out a surprisingly comfortable 4-0 hiding to oppponents Richmond Rovers.

In another lop-sided contest, premier division newcomers Bangalow secured a comfortable 5-0 win over Lennox Head Sharks.

The continuing poor weather badly affected the weekend's schedule with other games in the Anzac Cup tournament and the women's Callan McMillan Shield matches postponed.

Meanwhile, players and clubs are reminded that the deadline for senior team nominations has been extended until Thursday, March 14.

Teams are advised to ensure players are fully registered by that date.
