United Park Eagles aim for clean sweep at Martens Oval

A WIN in tonight's Bundaberg Football Division 1 women's grand final would gift United Park Eagles women's team a clean sweep of all the major football trophies this season.

UPE has claimed the Bundaberg Cup and Three Cities League grand finals in a fantastic 2015 and a win tonight against Bingera would cap it off.

Captain Taryn Gollshewsky said despite the bulging trophy cabinet and the minor premiership, the side had been inconsistent this season.

"We have been a little inconsistent but we have really settled down now especially after our 2-1 win against Villa last week to make the final," she said.

"That was a win we really needed and I think we are ready to go."

Gollshewsky said the side really enjoyed playing football together.

"We have a great group of girls that mesh very well," she said.

"We go out there and try have fun.

"I think we enjoy the tactical aspect of it and enjoy being around each other."

Gollshewsky said the team needed to work on its intensity for the entire 90 minutes.

"Win or lose we want to walk off the pitch with our heads held high," she said.

The club has met eight times in 2015 with UPE taking the honours with six wins.

However, when the teams met two weeks ago it was Bingera who proved victorious with a 2-1 victory.

Bingera captain Madelyn McCracken said despite that win the side would be taking UPE lightly.

"We need to go hard from the start," she said.

McCracken said with a relatively new squad she was proud with how the team had performed in 2015.

"We have made sure our passes and touches are on the ball," she said.

"We have gelled really well from the start of the year."

The game kicks off at Martens Oval at 8.15pm.
