Premiers pushed out

FOOTBALL: Whitsunday Football Club's premier men have been knocked out of the Northern Club Championship following their defeat at the hands of Townsville City Brothers in Townsville on Saturday night.

It was the team's first loss in the competition, having made it to the quarter finals only to go down 2-0.

WFC premier men player Mark Killian said the team had played well, singling out centre backs Ryan Lee and Jayden Tween, despite the loss.

"We played well as a team, but we let in two scrappy goals and just weren't able to create enough chances to get any goals ourselves," he said.

"Before this we were undefeated in the league, so it was disappointing."

Killian highlighted the team's ball movement as an area for improvement, saying they needed to work on "passing the ball a lot quicker and playing more as a team".

The game was a sad day for WFC in another way as well, being Killian's last match with the club ahead of his move to Ireland.

Killian thanked the club and all it's members for their support.

"It's been my life for the past five years," he said.

WFC have a bye this week.
