Edgeworth, Magic to represent NNSWF in Australia Cup national round of 32

Edgeworth FC and Broadmeadow Magic will represent northern NSW in the 2023 Australia Cup national round of 32.

The NPL Men's NNSW clubs won their respective seventh preliminary round matches this week to book their places in the final rounds of the 2023 tournament.

Edgeworth downed Newcastle Olympic 2-1 at Darling Street Oval on Tuesday night, with Kevin Dagnet heading home the winner for the Eagles in extra time.

Riley Parker had given the hosts the lead in the second half, only for Jordy Lennon to equalise eight minutes from full-time despite Olympic goalkeeper Adam Pearce saving Lennon's initial penalty.

Broadmeadow beat Maitland 3-0 at Magic Park on Wednesday night thanks to goals from James Cresnar, Jayden Stewardson and Riley Smith.

It is the third year in a row Magic have qualified for the round of 32 and seventh overall since the start of the competition in 2014.

It will also be Edgeworth's fifth time in the national competition and first since 2019.

Edgeworth and Broadmeadow will also face each other in the NNSWF Men's State Cup Final at Rockwell Automation Park, Weston on Saturday 29 July.

NNSWF General Manager Football Operations Liam Bentley congratulated the clubs on their achievement.

"Edgeworth and Broadmeadow have a proud record of success in our region and we're delighted they will have the chance to continue that on to the national stage again," Bentley said.

"We wish them all the very best as they represent northern NSW with the whole country watching on."

The Australia Cup 2023 round of 32 will be played over two weeks in early to mid-August.
