THE Maitland music festival Groovin’ the Moo has forced Football Mid North Coast to seek an alternative date for the next round of FFA Cup matches.
Games featuring Taree against Port Saints and Tuncurry-Forster against Macleay Valley were to be played at Port Macquarie as a double header on Sunday April 30.
However, Football Mid North Coast CEO Bruce Potter said this is the day after Groovin’ the Moo festival.
“A lot of the younger players from all teams will be heading there after their premier league games on Saturday,’’ Mr Potter explained.
“So we’re not going to ask them to race back on Sunday for another match. That’s not fair.
“We’ll find another date.’’
