Boyle shows plenty of pride in trial outings

WESTERN Pride general manager Pat Boyle had an added reason for being delighted with Sunday's football trial matches at Bundamba.

Western Pride's senior, under-20 and under-18 National Premier League sides tackled Ipswich Knights Brisbane Premier League teams in beneficial hit-outs before their respective seasons start over the next two weekends.

While happy with the progress of both regional clubs, Boyle said it was pleasing to see the Knights venue in excellent shape.

Pride are scheduled to play at least four NPL games at the Knights headquarters in coming weeks.

"The Knights were fantastic. The venue was beautiful," Boyle said, satisfied it passed the test for higher quality NPL and BPL games.

Being trials, the results were insignificant.

However, Boyle was encouraged by Pride's under-20 side which pushed an experienced Knights Reserve grade outfit all the way.

The Knights finally won 3-1, having seasoned performers like Nick Parfitt, Peter Hinks and Trent Griffiths in their line-up.

"It was a really good game," Boyle said.

The Knights BPL side was victorious 1-0, having also beaten Western Pride 3-0 in their previous Silver Boot game.

Pride's under-18 side outclassed the Knights 9-1.

BPL matches are scheduled to kick off this weekend with the NPL competition being launched a week later.

The Knights are due to open their 2013 campaign against Brisbane Force at Inala on Sunday night.

The Pride's first game is set down for the North Ipswich Reserve against QAS on March 10.

Meanwhile, the Western Pride Football Club's business and sponsors event has been rescheduled to Monday night at the North Ipswich Reserve Corporate Centre.
