Amateurs will take on semi-professionals in Rockhampton this Saturday night as Frenchville FC host Mackay powerhouse Magpies Crusaders United in Round 6 of the FFA Cup.
National Premier Leagues Queensland side Magpies Crusaders United are firm favourites after strong early round Cup wins over Mackay Lions and Magpies FC.
But hometown heroes Frenchville are plotting an upset at Ryan Park after last Saturday’s thrilling 4-3 win over Bundaberg side Across The Waves.
As one of the founding members of the old Queensland Soccer League in 1982 and the current trustee of the 1895 Wesley Hall Cup, Frenchville have a proud history in Queensland football and remain unbeaten in 2021.
In a dream Cup run, Frenchville have beaten local rivals Nerimbera FC and Bluebirds United, as well as teams from Gladstone and Bundaberg.
The knockout clash against Magpies Crusaders United looms as one of the most important fixtures in recent years for Frenchville, which has made the FFA Cup a priority after winning back-to-back titles in the Central Queensland Premier League.
Those who can’t make it to Ryan Park can watch the match LIVE on the Football Queensland Central Facebook page.
