National Premier League Youth

March 30th, 2022

NORTH Coast Football’s junior representative sides have played their first matches at home for the season during Round 4 of the National Premier League Boys competition.

The four North Coast Football sides took on Edgeworth at the Coffs Football Centre.

North Coast Football sides had mixed results at home, with the under 15s winning 2-1 and under 16s drawing 4-4, while the 14s and 13s sides both went down to Edgeworth.

North Coast Football Player and Coach Technical Development Manager, Alex Nolan, said the sides matched it against a traditionally strong junior club.

“Edgeworth are known to be a strong junior program, and there wasn’t one game where I didn’t think we matched them,” he said.

“Our under 15s battled hard for a win in the last minute, while our 16s did the complete opposite and were up 4-2 with 5 minutes to go but let them back for a 4-4 draw.

“There were some really positive signs on the weekend, and things we can identify and improve on for this weekend.”

Nolan explained they were not only up against a strong junior club, but their own internal problems.

“We had 13 players across all squads who were out, so we were a bit depleted,” he said.

“Eight of our players in the under 13s were out, and we had 6 players in the under 14s having to play two games, so Edgeworth ran over us in the end.”

North Coast Football sides hit the road this weekend for Round 5 when they take on the Lambton Jaffas at the Lake Macquarie Regional
