The 2015 State League Division Two season promises to be another exciting year, with now the possibility of two teams being promoted to Division One. The team that finishes top will automatically be promoted, while the runnersup will meet the second bottom club of Division One in a play-off.
Forrestfield United will be strong favourites for the title after their disappointment of missing promotion last year.The club signed several Division One players prior to the beginning of last year, in the likes of Trend Wood and Rhys Loxley, and will be determined not to miss out in 2015. The teams that are likely to challenge Forrestfield are Rockingham City, Curtin University and Melville City, with Wanneroo City being the dark horse in the promotion race.
Wanneroo were relegated last year, but recently signed Matt Debarro as senior coach, who has brought in a number of experience players. In the middle of the pack should be the likes of Fremantle City, Quinns FC and Joondalup City, all of who will fancy themselves a crack at the top four.
Kingsway Olympic have a new coach in Tom Kilkelly, and should do better this year, while Ellenbrook United and the Kelmscott Roos are likely to struggle.
What about our own club, Balga? We have had many changes over the summer, which included the decision to appoint Ljupco “Bobby” Taneski as first team coach just after the completion of the night series. Ljupco has only had a few weeks to look at the squad, and has already made some significant new signings which we hope will help us push up the league table
