North Coast 15s deliver in mind games

May 6th, 2021

North Coast National Premier League 15s coach Nathan Silvy is quick between the ears.
As they say, if you keep doing the same thing and expect a different result, it’s optimism to the extreme.
So Nathan decided to rattle the cage at the weekend – switching structure from a 4-3-3 to a 3-4-3.
And it was bingo time as North Coast toppled the well-rated Charlestown Azurri 3-2 in an epic contest.
“The season’s been a mixed bag with two wins, two losses and two draws,” Nathan said.
“So we tried a new formation and it seemed to work. It was a great game.
“Both of our wins have been against what are seen as higher sides so the ability is there and it’s more of a mental battle for the boys and girls.”
Nathan has a solid coaching CV having led the near imperious NPL 16s last year, and before that a lengthy resume which includes SAP and Coffs United senior men.
And he’s upbeat about the 2021 prospects for the North Coast 15s.
“It will be about being mentally strong for all of the games, not just against the top sides,” Nathan said.
