Round 5 n/w summer cup

This year is the first time a can ever remember the summer cup being played at two different venues either on the same day or even at different nights. This weeks first game is at 4:30 at Cardigan st. Somerset host Steve Hudson cup finalist Ulverstone.This game will be interesting as there still is a bit to play with both teams sitting on 6 points.Ulverstone should start as favorites due to not having to play Monday and also welcoming back some quality senior players, with Adrian Foot, Braden Mann, Adam Conkie and a few other regular senior starters.Somerset will be with out their captain Keegan Wells as he was sent off last Thursday against Burnie. Somerset will be looking to goal scoring machine Chris Smith to try and keep them close or to get over the line against Ulverstone. In the other game Burnie host Devonport at Burnie at 6:30 holding a twilight match.Devonport will be at full strength not having to play since last Friday and one would reakon coach McKenna will start him self after resting last week. Devonport will look to controll the midfield battle with young guns Bradley Chillcot and Jesse Curren in fine form.But I'm sure coach Cocker will be expecting his boys to lift after learning a lot from the state cup held Monday. Even though Burnie lost they held their formation and created a few chances against this years southern summer cup winners. Burnie rested a few senior players against somerset last Thursday and would be full strength for Saturdays game.
