The Bangalow Premier division means soccer side has bowed out of the FFA Cup after losing their fifth round clash with Coffs City United 3–0.

The side, playing at the SCU grounds in Lismore after their home ground was closed due to the rain, were just too ‘slow out of the gate,’ according to coach Neil Fuller.

The poor start saw the side facing a 2–0 deficit after just five minutes.

The poor start weighed on the side and a further defensive lapse in the twentieth minute put them three points behind.

The second half involved a much better effort from the Bangalow side but despite many chances to trouble the scorer they just couldn’t find the final touch they needed.

‘We didn’t score in the second half, but we should have, and we played well so we will be taking that out of the game,’ the coach said.

The loss brought to the end the team’s run in the FFA Cup, Australia’s country-wide knock-out competition.

The side is now free to concentrate on the regular Far North Coast competition where they will be busy catching up on the four games they have missed this year.
