    What’s the go there ? I know results haven’t been great over all grades but it takes time to rebuild doesn’t it ?

    Northern to now use the WNPL name from next year, good for the comp though it seems the need for certain criteria didn't need to be met after all.

    Does that qualify the Warners Bay ZPL men’s facility fit for NPL or NL1 criteria if the Womens WPL team gets deemed acceptable?

    Northern make the criteria suit their own agenda it is clearly obvious that a number of clubs did not meet all the criteria yet because they’re desperate for an WNPL they have chosen to ignore that.

    Would it be all that surprising if Warners Bay had their licence taken over by an NPL club. Wasn’t there talk of Valo and Lakes being interested?

    Also read on a thread on here that Edgeworth were rumoured to be keen.
    How true that is ???

    That’s an interesting one, I guess they wouldn’t like to be seen as one of the only top men’s sides to not be running a NPLW program.

    Well that was looking like the case when Northern were moving clubs so they could call the league WNPL, but seems like now Northern have that they aren't going to be pushing clubs to move

    Thought it was a requirement of this second professional league which Edgeworth want to be part of

    I'd say Warners Bay would meet NL1 criteria already, you just need the juniors teams

    Lauren Allan will be a big pick.

    Does Ash Wilson not care if they don't play in Sydney anymore? She had wanted them to play down there where the competition was tougher.

    That’s what I thought, didn’t seem to help them last year tho as the Jets still missed the finals. Maybe they just want them playing in an NPLW comp which this will be next year. Will interesting to see if more join, hopefully spread around tho to strengthen the whole comp.

    Was told club ain’t that interested no more. Wanna plough $$ into men 2make NPL happen in a couple of years. But shhhhsssshh - it a secret.

    Nothing like a good story to get in the way of the truth and trying to whip up a story against NL – thanks #FatKeeper (who I am thinking now has ties at WB from 2022).

    Yes Head Coach has accepted a managerial role on the Central Coast which requires work every second weekend and regular mid-week evening work. Yes we have identified a replacement who will help the club move into the next phase of our future in WNPL. Is it a setback? Yes a little. We had hoped that Maddy was going to be that coach to take us into the future – but sometimes life gets in the way. We have found an equally impressive individual who will help us develop young players and build the foundational cultural elements for success. Like we did with two-time premiership wining League One coach Tom Davies, we are putting our weight and support behind a young coach who wants to make a difference. BTW – Maddy stays in the club as Assistant TD – WPL Youth – she can see what we are trying to build and the depth of our commitment to women’s football.

    Like in the League One area, the club will not get caught in a ‘race to the bottom’ of player payments – did that in 2019 WPL, got us a trophy and a few years’ worth of heartache. Charging players circa $2000 registration to help win a comp is not our bag, and it’s just not sustainable. Our focus is on developing young players and putting some really good people (players and coaches) around them to help achieve this. At the end of the day – we live in Newcastle, a regional town with a limited pool of sponsorship dollars to pull from and the desire to keep the cost of football as low as we can. I think clubs lose sight of this sometimes.

    As for comments about “…the club ain’t interested no more” you’re obviously not at NLFC. Our commitment has not waivered. We are still relatively young in the WPL space and learning along the way. Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Girls and boys football is different in so many ways.

    And for your “wanna plough $$ into men”, well the boys and girls budgets were identical this year (2021). What people “think” our player budgets are is quite different to what they really are. If rumours are true, we paid half what Cookers paid this year and still won the comp in League One.
    We will take our position of sustainably funding programs into wherever our future takes us (if that is the NPL so be it) and will not be paying mercenaries exorbitant payments to fly in and out as they please and playing for themselves and the almighty dollar only. Those days are behind us – people play for the Club and the badge. That is what will make us different.
