Spirit excited about extra depth for season opener

HAVING seen tomorrow night's opponents The Gap score 12 goals in a recent FFA Cup match, Nick Paterson is mindful of their attacking prowess.

However, the Western Spirit head coach is ready for another Capital League 2 season of unpredictability.

"We've got plenty of depth this year so I'm not concerned,'' Paterson said, preparing for tomorrow's 6pm main game at Kippen Park.

"They (The Gap) are looking real good,'' Paterson said. "But we'll worry about our backyard.

"I'm confident with what we've got we can get results, regardless of what other teams put out in front of us.''

Paterson is keen to build on last season's performance where Spirit reached the grand final.

"I've got 30 boys that actually put their hand up to play A grade right now,'' he said.

"Our Reserve grade this week is going to be very strong.

"It's just buying into the whole culture of the club this year and everyone will get their opportunity.''

The Ipswich City Bulls also open their CL2 season, playing Acacia Ridge at Sutton Park tomorrow night.

Both games are at 6pm.
