After starting the year in the top four, the Boambee Bombers will look to get its season up and running when it hosts Bellingen FC on Monday afternoon.

Bellingen sit in second spot on the ladder in their inaugural CPL season, and are coming off a 2-1 win away from home against Southern United.

Round 11 got underway on Tuesday night with Football Mid North Coast teams playing off against each other, which continues this Monday with the Macleay Valley Rangers hosting Southern United, while Port United host the Kempsey Saints.

Coffs City United Lions host the Sawtell Scorpions next Wednesday night at Forsyth Park.

The Lions are undefeated at the top of the ladder after winning their first eight games of the season, and have the invaluable experience and belief after winning the last two CPL minor premierships.
