MINOR premiers Gerringong will attempt to qualify for their second straight grand final on Saturday, when they take on Illaroo at Ison Park in the first grade preliminary final.

The Breakers, who lost 2-1 to Bomaderry for a direct ticket to the final last Saturday, will be aiming to defeat the Roos, who knocked out two-time reigning premiers Culburra, for the third time this season.

“Obviously we are disappointed with the result but not with the way we played,” Breakers coach Lavington said.

“We aren’t going to change anything this weekend - I know Andrew Timbs’ troops will be very tough, so we will need to stay focused for the full 90 minutes.”

Saturday’s matches at Ison Park will start at 11am with the third grade clash between Culburra and Huskisson, followed by the reserve grade fixture between Huskisson and Gerringong at 1pm – with first grade kicking-off at 3pm.
