Hamilton Olympic have drawn Edgeworth Eagles next Wednesday night at 7.30 at Darling St Oval.
Adamstown may call on Michael Williams to play against former club Lambton Jaffas – just two weeks after he switched camps – in the FFA Cup on May 17.
Rosebud landed one of the toughest assignments of round five of the Northern NSW southern conference when they drew Jaffas away on Tuesday. Hamilton host Edgeworth in the round’s biggest clash, while Maitland welcome Weston in the other all-NPL game. Second-tier club New Lambton will host under-pressure NPL club Broadmeadow, who lost 7-0 to Maitland on Sunday.
Valentine, who had the bye last round, had another favourable draw and are away to Zone Premier League (third-tier) frontrunners, Newcastle Suns. The remaining NPL club, Lake Macquarie, will welcome interdistrict club Cardiff City.
Adamstown coach Peter McGuinness said Williams, who is not cup-tied, started training with Rosebud on Tuesday night and was therefore unlikely to feature against Jaffas. However, he may come in because Adamstown have a host of injuries.
Rosebud, who enjoy a welcomed bye this weekend, have Ryan Ensor, Mitch Hunter, Alex Read and Jordan Harrison in doubt for the FFA Cup game.
