"I was disappointed when I was told by Spencer Prior that FFT didn't require my services for the State team and that they wanted to take a different path."
I had enjoyed my time as State Coach and it had been a great experience. I really enjoyed the challenge and my time working with Chris McKenna, Peter Savill, Jed Donoghue, Ned Clarke and all the players. It was a terrific time and a great group to work with.
We are getting very excited here at South Hobart FC and the same can be said for our opponents Tuggeranong United FC. We caught up with Tuggeranong Coach Steve Forshaw and Captain Tim Stewart and asked about their thoughts on the upcoming Westfield FFA Cup game on Tuesday August 5th at KGV.
Tuggeranong United FC coach Steve Forshaw
Yesterday at our Victory League game I was asked various questions by lots of interested members of the football public about our upcoming Westfield FFA Cup game and beyond. To the best of my memory here are the questions and answers:
Please note that due to ground closures our VDL match against NTC scheduled for Sunday, 20 July, KO @ 2pm at Darcy Street HAS BEEN MOVED to Saturday, 19 July to KGV and KO is at 6:15pm!

2014 is the first year of the Westfield FFA Cup, an exciting new national competition that pits amateur, semi-professional and A-League clubs against each other for a major national prize.
South Hobart will represent Tasmania in the competition and a win in their clash could see them face an A-League giant in the next round.
The players are piped onto the field.
Only two matches to go and The World Cup is over for another four years. It's been a fab one so far, with plenty of goals (much to the horror of Brasil), and some very tight matches.
First up is the play off for 3rd place, kicking off on Sunday morning at 6am where we have the not so glorious Brasil facing off against Nederlands with both teams hurting and wanting to leave the World Cup with a win.
Then the BIG one - the FINAL - kicks off on Monday morning at 5am.
Both games are being shown live on SBS, plus you can stream them online or listen to the call on SBS Radio.
