WAGGA City Wanderers under-20s coach Liam Dedini will seek a trial game to give the team match practice before finals after they became the first side in club history to qualify for playoffs.
Sunday's 7-0 win at Queanbeyan guarantees the team fourth spot, which breaks the Wanderers' finals drought in their first season in Canberra's National Premier League after four years in the State League.
The Wanderers have a bye in the final round before the competition goes on hiatus the week after, meaning they face a three-week layoff before their finals campaign begins.
The under-18 and under-16 boys teams are also right in the hunt for a playoff spot with two rounds left, while the under-13 girls will look to seal a finals spot in the last round this week and join the already qualified under-15s and 17s.
The first grade men's side fell narrowly short of a finals spot and it's been a tough season for the women, but the juniors coming through has given the club reason for optimism.
The likes of Zach Pinney and Luke Shuttleworth have made an impact when elevated from under-20s to first grade this season, and Pinney's x-factor will be a major boost for finals.
They will take on either O'Connor Knights or Weston-Molonglo in the first week.
"We're absolutely stoked (to make finals)," Dedini said.
"There's a few boys in there who were playing under-18s at 15 or 16 year olds a few years back, or even under-20s last year in state league.
"It's good to see the boys who have stuck around and done the hard yards the last few years put it together and get what they deserve.
"The next few years if those twenties boys stick around the future of the club looks good, as well as the 18s and 16s coming through.
"It's been a tough year for the senior women but to potentially have three junior teams make finals in their first year is a big achievement."
Dedini said the main challenge is to ensure the team isn't sluggish after a long stretch between games.
"That's going to be tough. Ideally we'll look to have a trial game of some sort," he said.
