    Further trials tonight & shows not enough quality to cover the NPL teams when MaitlandFC U13ís beat Lake Macquarie 16-1 & could have been a lot more-Lakes lack quality to play at this level which is sad for the kids who are committed . Maitland were very good but also allowed to
    2 more years before all clubs control their own destiny of recruitment through SAP, which will hopefully fix these loo-sides results

    It is not good. That Lake Macquarie team had to conduct 3 trials just to fill the team let alone choose the best players.

    Sad considering that Macquarie had 3 very good u12 SAP teams right on their doorstep last year. Wonder who pillaged those lads?

    Magic filled up most of their U13s with Macquarie SAP kids, Magic TD used to be involved there and didn't even want a look at the Magic NET team

    I know the Macquarie TD and he told me out of the 38 Macquarie U12 kids from last season Magic got just 4. Valentine got 10, Edgeworth got 6, Adamstown got 5, Weston got 4, Lake Macquarie got 2, Jaffas got 2, Olympic got 1, Maitland got 1, Mariners got 1 and 2 no longer playing.

    That's a pretty good spread. It is good that they didn't all go to the one club. Perhaps a little Valo weighted but they need it in NPL youth

    How are youth teams shaping up this year? Heard Broadmeadow had a solid win in a trail against Azzuri last week in 13s.

    Good effort from Valo. 15’s Magic are going to be tough to beat this year.

    Yep 3 really tight games and Magic 15s very dominant as the score suggests.

    Some very loo sided results in NPL youth this weekend- the NOlympic & Maitland U13íís was a cracker with Maitland winning 4-3 after being down 3-0 after opening 10 minutes -but NO very , very strong in other age groups 14ís & 15ís way too strong & early days but Iím predicting these teams will dominate their Comp this year 16ís was more even than the 5-0 result , but Olympic ridiculously strong again!!

    The15s looks like having a few strong teams. Olympic, Magic, Jaffas and Edgy. Magic and Jaffas have had 2 strong wins and Olympic very good in their only match. Edgy won both of theirs too.

    Looking at how fast COVID-19 is spreading I honestly believe season 2020 is over. So Youth NPL teams only got to play 2 rounds and some only 1. It will be interesting to see how clubs proceed into next season. Will they carry the same team/coach forward into the next age group or re-trial? In the case of U16s going into U18s there would certainly need to be trials as some of the current U18s will still be eligible for U18s next year while almost all current U16s will be too old for U16s next year. I don’t know if clubs have given this much consideration yet as there is still a lot of wishful thinking out there. I would be interested to hear what people think.

    We won't be back on the 14th April. Lucky to be back by start of May.

    Most clubs will continue with their usual plan of retaining some players and telling others they will need to re-trail. Clubs have had all pre-season to guage it's just a blow to those players that may have vastly improved over the year. Northern could just bump up the age groups U13-U17 and U19 if the entire season is written off. Then revert to normal for 2022. Northern won't of course too hard, it will just be a start again and clubs do as they see fit.

    Mmm changing age groups is great for the guys in teams this year, but then what? You lose 2 years worth of players.

    I hope clubs band together and make some kind of competition in 2020. Even if we don’t get on until July, August, playing a mini round robin groups based on last years final table and finals series. At least get something out of the season.

    It’s a long offseason as is.

    This virus could go for a long time but if there is miraculous recovery all NPL clubs bar Valentine can play on there grounds all year long.
    No reason why we could not start on 1st of July and finish in November if the virus clears
    This could work for both Youth and Senior NPL

    Technically correct but keep in mind trials for the following year usually take place in September. Sure they could be moved later to November or whenever but then you start to have logistical issues. One example is ordering new player kits (mostly from China) and they take a long time to arrive.

    Just need Northern and FFA to put some pressure on the council to allow them to continue to use the field for game days.

    If any season is played this year, have no doubt it will be shortened season and may run into cricket season. Trials can always be pushed back later in year and would not be surprised if next year is pushed back and shortened.
