McEwan leaves Wide Bay to rejoin ladder leaders
FOOTBALL: The Wide Bay Buccaneers have lost another player from their first season in the Football Queensland Premier League.
The NewsMail can reveal goalkeeper Jason McEwan has moved back to Bingera and will play for them for the rest of the season in the Wide Bay Premier League.
McEwan returned last week against The Waves in a 2-1 win and was in action on Saturday in another 2-1 victory, this time against the United Park Eagles.
Bingera remained unbeaten in the competition with its ninth straight win.
The side remains six points clear at the top of the ladder and have only conceded six goals in nine games this season.
Bingera coach Brett Kitching confirmed the McEwan move to the NewsMail .
"McEwan had actually quit the Buccaneers last week (before facing The Waves) and will be playing for us for the rest of the year,” Kitching said.
McEwan is a valuable inclusion to the Bingera side with over 50 appearances for the club in the past three years.
He will be aiming to help the club win its first Wide Bay Premier League title.
Bingera remain six points clear of Doon Villa who remain in second after they smashed the KSS Jets 7-1 in Hervey Bay.
Villa captain Joel Neilsen scored four goals as the side maintained its charge as the Fraser Coast's best side this year.
The team is now the number one attack in the competition as well.
In other matches, Bargara defeated the United Warriors 2-1 to move to within one point of fourth and the finals with Brothers Aston Villa beating Sunbury 3-1 in Maryborough.
Brothers Aston Villa led 1-0 at half time before scoring two further goals in the second half to seal the win.
The side now faces Doon Villa at Martens Oval this Saturday with The Waves facing the Eagles at ATW Grounds.
Finally, Bingera face KSS Jets with Sunbury facing Bargara.
