NCF NPL show fight against strong Broadmeadow Magic outfit

March 15th, 2020

North Coast Football’s NPL Development squads travelled to Newcastle on Saturday for the second week in a row, this time to take on the formidable Broadmeadow Magic FC.

It was a tough day for all four age groups as a slick Magic outfit, who often dominate the NPL Youth competitions, looked to make a statement early in the 2020 competition.

Whilst the NCF U16s were 5-2 winners, our younger age groups lost their matches.

North Coast Football Technical Director Jack Dover was pleased with the effort put in by his sides across the afternoon, and outlined the aim for North Coast Football is development.

“Our younger teams struggled today. Broadmeadow were physically strong and dominated most games through their ability to transition and close spaces quickly.” 

“Throughout the games we showed improvements in our ability to deny the opposition time to build up, but we failed to capitalise and convert once we won the ball in the final third.”

“The bar has been set very high for us, and I’m looking forward to seeing an improvement when the magic travel to Coffs Harbour later in the season.

“Our U16s displayed what prolonged exposure to this competition can do for these players. We were clinical in front of goal, and dominated large portions of the game with some great individual performances.”
