    Still a better explanation than someone wanted them to be where they ended up......

    with "yearly reviews" for NPl this would make sense. I heard New Lambton are close to for NPL push as well but are still getting criteria in order.

    I remember the Ruggers did put money into N02 and expect them to fight against new proposals.

    New Lambton could be an option for No2. They will never get into NPL while they play on Alder.

    Probably next year why they are sharing Arthur Edden.

    But let's not kid ourselves they will never get into NPL, Northern just don't really care about it.

    Can't see Edden being shared with the mens teams. The ground is already sufferring from it level of use.

    Hmmm, trying to fit 5 days of football into 4 days per fortnight. Plus throwing in SAP.

    Won’t happen, or if it does, expect the women to be played at Alder Park.

    The so called consultant that Newcastle Council engaged wants to see a higher level of use at the NPL club grounds. 25 hours per week is their target.
    They just never seem to get the needs of football.

    most of councils in sydney have recognised football as the most played sport and funding has been allocated accordingly
    council here still think rugby league and cricket rule the world

    3 days of football, Jaffas Senior and Youth and New Lambton Seniors.

    New Lambton Youth will stay at Alder Park

    New Lambton WPL are using Darling Oval.

    If Newcastle wasnt bad enough. Maybe excepting a couple.

    Could Smith Park house an academy. Pretending the govt is willing to spend money out of Sydney of course.

    Jeez, I like their thinking, leech off the NPL clubs for ground maintenance and use the money they save to spend big on players to win more titles.

    What happened there? Was looking forward to the Hamilton canteen when my partner's daughter's team came up against New Lambton

    There is no reason for Hamilton to want to share (unless cash changes hands). Any normal fee for use of the field goes to council.
    My understanding was that Hamilton had an exclusive use agreement with council (part of the whole deal to get rid of cricket).

    Well I always assumed that Hamilton were only allowing it if it benefited them somehow.
