Roar ramp up Westfield FFA Cup preparation

Brisbane Roar’s Hyundai A-League squad held an internal practice match yesterday as preparations intensify for the Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 clash with Perth Glory on August 10.

The hit-out was designed to provide invaluable match practice for the group who are currently in their fourth week of pre-season training.

The importance of this Wednesday’s Westfield FFA Cup clash with Perth Glory was highlighted by the intensity of the internal training game which was officiated by Hyundai A-League referee Jarred Gillett.

With the commencement of the 2016/17 Hyundai A-League season still over two months away, the players are continually seeking to improve and ensure that they make the most of every session in the lead-up to the season opener against Melbourne Victory at Suncorp Stadium on Friday, 7 October.
