A FIRST-HALF goal to Cameron Potter was all it took for Tamworth FC to claim their second title in three years in the McDonald’s Northern Inland premier league reserve grade competition.
Playing Demon Knights who finished fifth after the regular season, Potter’s goal 27 minutes into the game sealed the victory for the visiting side.
DK managed to create plenty of opportunities in the opening stages of the match but shots were missed and the FC took advantage.

Coach Greg Bartlett was thrilled with his side’s defensive work late in the match to hold on to the victory.
"It doesn't get much better than that,” he said.
"It got a bit nervewracking towards the end but a win is a win.
"They scored early and then toughed it out which was really good.”
After some patchy form early on in the season, the side managed to gain momentum to qualify for the decider.
From there, the team’s hard work paid off.
"We haven't had a lot of people at training but towards the back end of the season it changed a fair bit and then the first graders helped us out when they got knocked out so it is for the club. These are a champion mob of blokes,” Bartlett said.
