The Football Mid North Coast southern under 18s and 16s championships are headed to the Tigers after the southern junior grand finals were decided last weekend.

It was a Tuncurry Forster inter-club derby in the under 18s final where Premiers Tigers Black defeated Tigers Gold 4-2 to win the title. 

Goals to Lachie Palmer and Sam Amato put Gold in front early but quality strikes from Jordan Vanderberg, Jarred Chapman, James Peters and Shaun McNamara saw Black add the title of 2018 champions to their premiers crown.

Captain Rourke Banham was named player of the match.

They’ll now take on Camden Haven Redbacks in the zone championship match.

Tigers Black upset premiers Great Lakes Vikings 3-0 to win the under 16s title.

An early long-range opening goal from Callum Pfister was just the start the Tigers needed.

The lead was extended midway through the first half when Jack Jurlina found the back of the net.

A last minute goal from Cody Stocker was the icing on the cake. The side will play Port Saints FC Sharks in the zone championship match.
