History in the Making as Lions progress to Cup Finals

Lightwood Park Football

Kingborough Lions United Football Club and Glenorchy Knights (Croatia-Glenorchy) will compete for the Lakoseljac Cup on June 10 at Clennett’s Lightwood Park. The Lions eventually overcame a fiery Riverside Olympic team in the Lakoseljac semifinal, with some set-piece magic from Greg Downes sealing the game in the dying minutes.

Our women’s team met Launceston United in their semi-final. In a nail-biting match, the game went to extra time. The Lions emerged victorious with a 4-2 win (2-2 at full time) and will face Devonport Strikers in the final at Clennett’s Lightwood Park on June 10

Football Tasmania have chosen Clennett’s Lightwood Park as the venue for the 2024 Statewide Cup Finals and the club is working with FT to host the finals day. This will be the first time Kingborough Lions United FC has had both of its high performance teams in the cup finals.

  • 13:30 Women’s Statewide Cup Final: Kingborough Lions United FC vs Devonport City Strikers
