A-League football coup for Byron Bay
Rams coach, Peter Ware, said Gold Coast officials on Monday confirmed the game would go ahead.
“It’s a coup for us and for football in the area,” he said.
“This is an A-League side with million-dollar players.”
The Rams’ top team will face a Gold Coast playing roster that includes Socceroo midfielder Jason Culina and New Zealand international Shane Smeltz, but at this stage it’s not known what the line-up against the Rams will be.
Sunday week’s game is set for a 3.30 pm kick-off and will be preceded by a clinic for junior players at 10.30 am involving Gold Coast players and coaching staff.
A big crowd is expected to turn out to watch the match.
The Gold Coast side beat New Caledonia 5-0 in a trial game last weekend and is playing trials this week in Singapore and Hong Kong.
