SHOWDOWN: Lions on the hunt as Bombers loom large

DESPITE unprecedented disruption throughout the season the stage is set for a cracking finale.

Coffs City United Lions will take on Boambee FC in Coastal Premier League Northern Conference grand final, after the competition endured a tough, though successful first season.

Initially it was postponed along with all competitive sport as the country grappled with the first wave of coronavirus. Then after a gripping start, it was split into two competitions as restrictions on inter-regional competitions were introduced.

Through all of the uncertainty, both Boambee and Coffs United have earned their place at the top, with the Lions in proving a formidable outfit throughout the season.

They only dropped two points across their final ten games in the northern conference after being crowned inaugural CPL champions in spectacular fashion before the split.
