Last chance for United's U16s to win title together

LAST CHANCE: A tight group of players will chase a title in what could be their last game together as a team.

United Warriors' under-16s have progressed with every season David Patterson has coached the team, going from strugglers three years ago to now just one win away from a title.

Patterson said the players' attitudes towards football and the team, as well as support from parents, had powered them to the minor premiership and a shot at grand final glory.

"This season has been a really good one, I've been with them for a few years and we've gradually gotten better," he said. "(The improvement has) been a bit of everything. We've welcomed a few players, they're all mates at school and they all just want to win."

United will face Tinana in the decider, a team they beat in the major semi final.

"When they beat us earlier this year, all I said is we used to be the team that were beaten every week, and it was up to them if they wanted that again," Patterson said.

"I'm expecting a really tough game. They're physical, and when we played the semi-final Tinana equalised and it could've gone either way."

Mitchell Mowat leads the side with 18 goals, ahead of Ben Roberts (17) and Jaidyn Larment (15). Kick-off is at 9am.
