NPL Round 2 preview

March 10th, 2022

North Coast Football’s junior representative teams are set to play their first matches of the National Premier League (NPL) Boys Northern NSW season, when they travel to take on the Lake Macquarie City FC sides this weekend.

North Coast Football will be taking on Lake Macquarie City FC teams also playing their first NPL matches of the season, after the first round of the season was washed out.

North Coast Football has entered four teams in this years NPL Northern NSW competitions, with the under 13s, 14s, 15s and 16s teams to represent the North Coast.

North Coast Football Player and Coach Technical Development Manager, Alex Nolan, said the NPL sides were raring to go after last season was cut short due to COVID.

“Our season was cut short in August before the finals, so it has motivated them heading into the new season,” he said.

“The teams are looking strong, and the buy-in from the players during the pre-season about what we’re trying to achieve has been amazing,” he said.

“Everybody’s pumped and ready to go, and we’re looking to hit the ground running against Lake Macquarie.”

Nolan emphasised that the new synthetic fields at the Coffs Football Centre had been great preparation for the upcoming season.

“Training on synthetic fields has been a big help as all of our games this season will be on synthetics,” he said.

North Coast Football teams play their first home games of the season during Round 4 against Edgeworth FC on Sunday, 27 March, at the Coffs Coast Sport & Leisure Park.
