    Allied Pickford's Cup: Friday Night Lights

    South Toowoomba face Coolaroo at Heritage Oval

    Toowoomba’s iconic Heritage Oval is now home to the South Toowoomba Bombers.

    This Friday night in round two of the Allied Pickfords Cup competition, the Bombers and Coolaroo Roos will have the privilege of being the first AFL Darling Downs teams to play on the field.

    South Toowoomba club president Mark Peach said the players are thrilled to be a part of the historic game.

    “I know the boys are very excited to be playing under the lights at such an incredible facility,” Mr Peach said.

    “The field looks absolutely magnificent,” he said.

    Bombers head coach Shaun Reardon also said that the addition of Heritage Oval is an immense asset for the club, but may take some time in getting used too.

    “It’s pretty exciting for not only the club but the competition entirely,” Reardon said.

    “It (Heritage Oval) has potential to be a premier venue in town. It has a great playing surface and great facilities.” he said.

    “But in terms of playing it is as foreign to us as much as the opposing teams.”

    Friday night’s match will be the opening game of the year for both South Toowoomba and Coolaroo, as heavy rain forced a number of field closures in round one.

    This puts even more importance on the Heritage Oval opening, as each team will be looking to start the 2014 campaign on the right foot.

    Coach Reardon said despite missing the finals last season he is confident in his team’s ability to compete.

    “We are a little in the deep-end having to play the defending grand final premiers in our first game,” Reardon said.

    “But we’ve had a great preseason and a number of new faces,” he said.

    “Last year I think our main problem was a lack of depth, we’ve fixed that and there will be real competition for playing time in the senior’s side.”

    With a positive outlook on the season ahead the Bombers clash with the Roos should be close a encounter.

    And although it may be the first AFL game played in quite some time on Heritage Oval, it certainly isn’t expected to be the last.

    Mr Peach said he hopes to extend the usage of the grounds to build AFL in Toowoomba.

    “Hopefully we can build a relationship with other users of the field and have grand finals held here and even state league games,” Mr Peach said.

    The South Toowoomba Bombers will play the Coolaroo Roos Friday April 4 at 7pm on Heritage Oval

    Could Lockyer overrun Warwick at their opening of the new field?

    Righto, I've been a bit slack but I'll catch up. Big changes on the Darling Downs this year with 2 divisions being trialled. The league had become a bit stale with too many massive floggings dished out regularly, to combat this a second division was introduced giving us 8 teams in Division One (Coolaroo, University, South Toowoomba, Highfields, Warwick, Goondiwindi, Lockyer Valley and Toowoomba Tigers) and 8 teams in Division Two (Coolaroo, University, South Toowoomba, Highfields, Warwick, Dalby, Chinchilla and South Burnett). The Women's Competition also expanded in 2014 from 3 teams to six, South Toowoomba, Warwick and Lockyer Valley all returned from the inaugural season in 2013 and have been joined by Coolaroo, Goondiwindi and Dalby.

    Due to the extra footy now having to be played over a weekend the draw was completely revamped with Friday nights, Saturday's and Sunday's now all regular fixtures on the calendar. Junior numbers have seen a slight increase as well so it's safe to say footy on the Darling Downs is in a pretty good place at the moment.

    Hey reardo. That boy you spotted in one of his first games playing AFL, Wylie Buzza has just been chosen in the QLD u18s side to play this weekend in Victoria. Its only been 2 and a bit seasons since Wylie first took up the Sherrin, and a couple of weeks later you recommended him for the DD Crows...

    I know Webby also has been instrumental in steering the kid through the AFL maze. Well done fellas. Wylie did his bit also..

    Hadn't seen that, that's great news, couldn't happen to a nicer kid. He could seriously be anything, he's an amazing athlete.
