Recognising Charlestown Azzurri Football Club

13 October 2020


Ms JODIE HARRISON(Charlestown) (20:01:36):Charlestown Azzurri Football Club went up against Lake Macquarie City FC in a nailbiter of a match last weekend. The last fixture of the COVID-shortened season, the match determined if Azzurri would make it into the finals. Coming hot off a 2-0 victory over the Broadmeadow Magic on Saturday 3 October, Azzurri rode their momentum to another win, cementing what has been a strong season for the side. Scott Smith put Azzurri ahead in the sixtieth minute with a speculator long-range volleyed strike, and Rene Ferguson scored a second goal two minutes later with a header. Their performance at the weekend moved their standing to fourth place, putting the side into the finals for the first time since 2014a fitting reward for a hard-fought season. I will keep a close eye on the semis and I wish them all the best. Forza Azzurri!
