Country Western, coached by Callum Christie claimed bragging rights by being crowned Country Championship winners with Riverina finishing runners up.

While in the 14 Boys at Football NSW’s Valentine Sports Park in Glenwood, Met East, coached by Paul Bertolissio, proved too strong for the competition as the talented squad finished top of the table ahead of runners-up Met West.

Country Riverina, coached by Samuel Gray, made it a special week for the region as they were crowned Country Championship winners while Western clinched second spot.
