NORTH Coast Football’s junior representative teams have played their second games at home this year at the Coffs Harbour synthetic fields.

North Coast Football under 14s maintained top spot on the ladder with a 3-3 draw with Valentine.
The under 15s also earnt a draw with Valentine in a 2-2 result, while both the under 16s and 13s lost to the visitors.
The under 16s are currently second on the ladder in their competition, while the under 15s are third.
North Coast Football Player and Coach Technical Development Manager, Alex Nolan, said Valentine provided a good early season challenge.
“They play a good high intensity pressure type of football, which was a good challenge for our sides,” he said.
“All the games were competitive and there weren’t any blowouts just good games of football.”
Nolan said it was a good atmosphere for the sides to play in on the weekend, as it coincided with the inaugural Coastal Premier League’s super round.
“The weather was beautiful and it was a nice sunny day and a great day for football,” he said.
“We were in between the super round games, so we had a big crowd and great atmosphere,
“And Kew Jaliens and Peter Haynes from the Newcastle Jets came up and looked at what talent North Coast Football has to offer.”
North Coast Football sides are at home again on Sunday, 24 April when they host Mid Coast FC in Round 7
