Eagles to host Grand Final

Albion Park-Oak Flats have won the right to host the 2005 grand final at Centenary Field on September 11 following the South Coast League's Board of Management Meeting last Tuesday night.

The Eagles, guaranteed of the minor premiership in first grade after only losing one game all season, will be fighting for a home grand final when the competition moves into semi-final mode in three weeks, with the Albion Park-Oak Flats Club hosting the decider for the first time since 1999.

"The awarding of the Grand Final to Centenary Field comes right on top of their recent news that the State Government and Shellharbour City Council had granted the club funding to start building their new clubhouse, making it a very exciting few weeks for the club," South Coast League Secretary Manager David Hall said.

"The Eagles gave us great support at the start of the season when they allowed us to use their ground for the Dragons v Manly NRL trial and they will now get to finish the season off for us as well," he added.

Venues for the remaining games in the semi-final series will be decided over the next few rounds when it is clear as to where the first grade teams finish inside the top five.
