    I heard that as well but those players are good so probably would've made it anyway. I heard that those kids got put in the team's leadership group to please the sponsors.

    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
    If you read his post he does say that his top for is in ALPHABETICAL order

    I am not sure of the politics there but they did defeat the highly fancied Magic team in a preseason trial.

    There can always be a surprise packet and no doubt we probably will get a surprise or two ... or three if we revise these posts at season’s end.

    Edgeworth 14s preseason results:
    3-1 loss against Mariners (quite respectable)
    4-1 win against Magic (last yearís grand finalists)
    2-1 win against Central Coast United (play in Sydney NPL)
    Another 3-1 loss against Mariners (quite respectable again).

    Time will tell if I am off my rocker.

    People aren’t allowed to follow or be invested in the top tier of youth football in the hunter but it’s ok for you to be passionate about a second tier senior team in the same region?

    That makes sense......

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

    No particular order - just top 4.

    I thought I did alphabetical order but in hindsight J comes before M

    I saw the 13s play the second half against Maitland, lots of work to do. I know it was only a trial but the stopped keeping score at 10-1

    Thatís right but I also saw Valo 13s defeat Jaffas in a preseason trial and they are a team I have picked to finish top 4.

    Good luck to the boys, hopefully it is a close competition this year all round.

    I think you will find most u13s in NPL will have at least Captain and Vice Captain

    Nope. Lakes 14s have won all of their trial games against NPL teams. Valo maybe. But lakes in a couple of age groups will be different.
