Gulls 2021 Schedule Released
The Grays Harbor Gulls FC 2021 Western Washington Premier League schedule is here. Gulls home matches will again be played at Aberdeen's Stewart Field, with a maximum of 400 fans in attendance. Match prices will be $5 for those over 12, and free for under 12, over 65, or active military.
The Gulls will start the season on Saturday, April 3rd against the defending WWPL champions Snohomish County Steelheads. The Fish are the Gulls last WWPL opponents, beating Grays Harbor 3-1 in Arlington in 2019. They were also the Gulls first ever opponent in a friendly match in 2018.
The Gulls then travel to Gig Harbor for the first away game on April 10th. The Gulls hold a 3-0-1 record against Harbor in competitive matches, but a merger with Olympic Force will see a much stronger Harbor team face the Gulls.
The Gulls return for a two week homestand against WWPL rivals Federal Way FC, and league newcomers, Wenatchee All Stars.
After bye weeks the first two weeks of May, the Gulls travel to Federal Way and Lacey on the 15th and 29th, with a third bye week in between.
The Gulls finally return home on June 6th with a home match against Harbor Force, followed by a visit from Nido Aguila Seattle on June 13th. The month of June is rounded off with away trips to Wentachee and Snohomish on the 19th and 27th.
With no WWPL matches in the month of July, the Gulls next match is a home match, August 8th at Stewart Field against Kirkland FC, before traveling to Starfire to face Nido Aguila Seattle for the second time. Bye weeks on August 21st and September 4th sandwich an away match at Kirkland, before the Gulls end the season on September 12th against rivals Lacey FC.
The Gulls will then play a league cup in the month of September, with more details on that still to come. Grays Harbor is also entered in the Washington State Cup for 2021, after reaching the inaugural tournaments semifinals in 2019. More details on the state cup are also still to come.
