    Very surprising that
    You are all neglecting the major part of the announcement.


    New Lambton has a 'press office'.

    Must have renovated the baby changing room or something.

    A-League 2nd div cant come soon enough for some of these clubs.


    Cheers,
    plagues press office.

    I like the idea of loyalty, some players and clubs would be motivated by cultivating that culture.
    I think the constant changes to the competition make up with youth through to what the senior grades are and expansion of the competition have all played a part in making it a bit hard to be “loyal” from both sides.

    Also slightly amused at the NL comments.
    We crucify clubs like Lakes or Adamstown for not being competitive. We crucify clubs like Jaffas for spending money to win competitions. We crucify clubs for ‘stealing’ fringe players that have been ‘developed’ at other clubs. And now we crucify clubs in the middle that are trying to improve their squad.


    There ain’t no winning.

    Clubs have had long enough to be babied by no relegation. Now we will start to see over the next 5 years who the sustainable and successful clubs will be. Those that piss off the player base and can’t attract players, those that overstretch financially and can’t keep it up, those that develop from within. Very exciting.

    I wouldnt leave a winning club if the $$ were relatively close.

    I thought NL with their 1000s of juniors which was often told to all would grow their own team. maybe that wasnt as great as it sounded.

    I agree, but you name me 5 players from the current crop that have been loyal? I'm talk 10 years +.

    Rare as hen's teeth.

    Not many in NPL - just mercenaries.

    Possibly Pat Wheeler and Dylan Holz at Edgie would be getting close.

    As clubs are starting pre-season training do we have any news on player movements other than those known? Have heard Cooks Hill have attracted a few good young players there ?
