    Yeah looks close Iíd say the 13s would have been higher, I didnít see it all from the start but they looked pretty slick for a 13s team.

    Might be the last of the old HV SAP program coming though, depending on how many of them they took.

    Looks like it might be a bit of a different comp for the 14's this year, will be interesting to see how the season shapes up, probably the same up around the top 4, but then a bit different through the rest of the ladder. I'm looking forward to seeing what the season brings.

    Yeah they are I get the pleasure of seeing them train on a regular basis having the same training nights as them, and they do look good just at training. Unfortunately didnít see them play at all as I only saw the back end of the 15ís and all the 16ís. So only going off what I remember seeing on the scoreboard.

    Youth season kicks off this weekend and for everyone’s benefit I am going to tell you which teams in each age group will finish in the top 4 at the end of the season. Note, they are in alphabetical order not rank order:

    U13s - Broadmeadow, Edgeworth, Lambton, Maitland
    U14s - Edgeworth, Maitland, Mid Coast, Newcastle
    U15s - Edgeworth, Maitland, Newcastle, Valentine
    U16s - Edgeworth, Lambton, Maitland, Newcastle

    You might find a couple of these predictions surprising but nobody understands youth football like me and when you look at this post at the end of the season you will find my accuracy to be upwards of 80%. Before anyone criticises me about what an arrogant moron I am put your money where your mouth is and let’s see your predictions.

    I love the post and confidence but am very surprised about the Edgeworth 13s. Rumour has it they had to make places for sponsors kids

    U13s - Magic, Jaffa's, Maitland, Olympic
    U14s - Magic, MNC, Olympic, Rosebuds
    U15s - Azzurri, Magic, Olympic, Rosebuds
    U16s - Edgy, Magic, Jaffa's, Olympic

    Is it definitely still top 4 this year?

    Id drop Adamstown out of 14s and 15's possibly put Maitland or Edgeworth there in 14's (but I'd like to see how their new keepers perform though). Our last trial game against them in the 15s they fielded half a team of 16's and still only won by 2 goals. would appear they don't have kids that are good enough to push up into the next age group and its pretty poor form fielding players an age down especially for a trial game. for a team we lost to by a bit of a margin last year in the 13s, we beat Adamstown in preseason trials this year. Theres always a bit of change between 13's and 14s so other than olympic, MNC, Edgeworth who will field almost the same team I'm expecting to see some changes happening across that age group.

    @Retired01 - that wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    Not sure why you are claiming Edgeworth top across three grades

    Their 14s only finished 6th last year, not many changes. Certainly not enough to now make them better than Mid Coast which only lost one game all year and Olympic only losing 2. You're off your rocker.

    15s Edgeworth well they should make top 4 again, Magic developed their players well and so they went to Jets so they will drop but Olympic will easily finish top

    Only Premier you have correct is Edgeworth 16s

    Swap MidNorth and Olympic on top and and Magic to 3rd or 4th in 14s and you will be right

    How has Azzurri changed enough to finish top in 15s?

    You'd be right for 16s

    If I am going to tell people they are wrong I may as well put my predictions in (and some of you are)

    13s - Lambton, Broadmeadow, Edgeworth, Charlestown
    14s - Mid Coast, Olympic, Maitland, Adamstown (I wouldn't have Adamstown so high but since most of them didn't end up going to Jaffas they will still do alright)
    15s - Olympic, Maitland, Edgeworth, Broadmeadow
    16s- Edgeworth, Lambton, Olympic, Broadmeadow
