The Kempsey Saints Premier League reserve grade side will be in action after a week off in the opening weekend of the finals.
The minor premiers will travel to Wauchope to face off with the Forster-Tuncurry Tigers in the grand final qualifier.
Kevin Sinclair is back on deck to coach the side after enjoying a holiday overseas and credits Matt Baker for taking control while he was away.
“Matt did a great job and helped steer the side to a minor premiership,” Sinclair said.
“He had a busy job of coaching both Premier League sides as well as the Northern Representative side which took on the Jets last month.”
Sinclair is expecting the Tigers to pose a tough challenge.
“I am expecting a close game and it could require the full distance to get a result,” he said.
The two sides drew 1-1 in the first round and it was another tight game in their second meeting but the Saints stepped up a gear in the final 20-minutes to earn a 5-2 victory in the high scoring contest.
The reserve grade match will kick off at 12.45pm.
Saints are still waiting on final confirmation of reserve grade eligibility from FMNC before naming their team.
Saints are celebrating one of their best seasons for their juniors.
The club has the U13s White side in action against Port United and the U16 Girls will battle Wauchope for a spot in the decider. The U18 girls already advanced to the grand final with a victory over minor premiers Port United.
The club had 42 junior teams this year and they would like to thank their coaches and sponsors who make each season possible.
Junior Presentation will be held at the Kempsey Pool on Sunday October 15.
