United took on Joondalup City on May 17 in the inaugural President’s Cup match, running out 2-1 victors at Iluka Sports Complex.

United coach Daniel Smith was proud of the team’s ‘battling performance’.

‘We came out the blocks firing and City couldn’t handle us,’ he said.

Heating up the rivalry is the fact the Joondalup sides are currently jostling with each other for ladder positions in the top half of the table.

They face each other again on August 9.
