State soccer cup coming to Lismore

The $10,000 NNSW Football State Cup comes to Lismore tomorrow, with two matches from the opening round to be played as a double header at Richards Oval.

A record seven local clubs have nominated for the third year of the lucrative knock-out competition, which has attracted 81 sides from Newcastle to the Tweed.

Home side and reigning FFNC champions Lismore Workers will feature in the first game, taking on former FFNC club Maclean from 1pm.

The second match will see Alstonville's dynamic young line-up favoured to get the better of Casino from 2:30pm.

The other match today involving a local side will see second division minnows Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley face an almost impossible task when they travel to Korora to take on Northern Inland champions Tamworth FC.

Tomorrow, Lennox Head will meet Port Macquarie FC at Woolgoolga, while Lismore Thistles and Goonellabah both compete in Coffs Harbour.

Thistles meet Urunga Raiders while Goonellabah faces a tough prospect against the powerful Coffs City United side.
