North East Stars pulled six points clear at the top of the Pro League 2017 standings on Friday night after edging second-positioned W Connection 1-0 to set the stage for new champions this season with three-time holders Central FC seventh and just 13 points from 12 of their 18 league games.

Defence Force winger Reon Moore is hungry for more success after making an impressive start at his new club since making the move from North East Stars for this season. The 21-year-old, known for his tricky style of play, has scored four goals so far after setting a target of 10 for his debut campaign. His exploits have seen Defence Force up to fifth in the 10-team Pro League standings and into the semi-finals of the First Citizens Cup which kicks off next week.
