Suffolk Park Phoenix rose from the ashes and stung the Goonellabah Hornets by winning the fifth division Far North Football grandfinal 2–1.
This result means one of the youngest clubs in the competition has won silverware in all but its inaugural season in 2012.
Coming back from two losses against Goonellabah during the season, the grandfinal saw Suffolk Park win the match at the Dunoon Sports Club.
The action was contained in the first half with Suffolk Park scoring two goals to Goonellabah’s one.
Led by their Captain Anthony Macdonald, Suffolk Park were able to hold strong against a determined Goonellabah team to seal the win.
Long-term Suffolk Park player James Hagger helped to secure the win with a stellar effort playing a variety of positions, and was awarded man of the match.
Suffolk Park Football Club would like to thank their supporters and sponsors for helping to make this season all that it has been, along with Byron Shire Council, MPs, and the community of Suffolk Park for helping them to secure the fields this year from the potential public sale of the land by the NSW Education Department.
