Young Socceroos tested by Coast sides

FOOTBALL: The Australian under-20 squad has been put through its paces on the Sunshine Coast.

The representative outfit was stunned by a Zone under-20 unit at Maroochydore on Monday night, in a goalless draw.

The Young Socceroos were also set to tackle a Sunshine Coast Team-of-the-Year at the same venue last night.

The Coast side was set to include the likes of Jeremy Stewart, Sam Nickolls and Chris Jancevski.

A Sunshine Coast Select team will take on a Football Brisbane Select team in a curtain-raiser to the Roar-Mariners A-League trial at Bokarina on September 26.
