Nimbin Headers out for soccer premiership double

GRAND finals in Football Far North Coast men's divisions will continue tonight, with two deciders being contested at Oakes Oval, Lismore.

Third-division minor premiers Nimbin Headers will be looking to complete the premiership double, when they take on Pottsville at 8pm.

The Headers will be chasing consecutive grand final wins after taking out the fourth-division decider last year and then proving worthy of promotion by reaching another.

Pottsville upset the Headers in the major semi, before Nimbin bounced back with a win over Italo Stars in the preliminary final to earn a rematch.

Their clash will be preceded by the fourth-division grand final between Bangalow and Woodburn from 6pm.

The Bluedogs finished as minor premiers and will be favoured, but Woodburn are on a roll after winning three sudden-death semis to reach the decider.

Two other divisions have already been settled, with Richmond Rovers taking out the premiership double in fifth division with a 1-0 win over Eureka, and Shores United doing the same in sixth division by downing Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley 3-2.

All the remaining grand finals will be played at Oakes Oval tomorrow.
