Who are the Newcastle All Stars FC?

The Newcastle All-Stars FC were established in 2016 by Mick Hugo, with the purpose of attending the Inaugural National Indigenous Football Championships. Mick has had a long history in Indigenous Football with close to 15 years involvement in the sport.

He saw the need to organise teams from our area, with current players representing and chosen from Newcastle, Central Coast & Mid-North Coast areas. Players that will feature on Saturday have a cultural connection to Awabakal, Kamilaroi, Darkinjung, Worimi & Biripi. The main vision of these sporting teams is to build a great reputation in our indigenous community as we are very passionate about supporting our local kids in Football. Newcastle has the largest representation at the tournament normally.

Newcastle All Stars would like to thank Kosta Patsan and the Newcastle Olympic committee for all their hard work organisers this great day.

Newcastle Olympic U14s and U16s, both 2020 Premiers in their respective age groups represented the club in the NPL Youth Grand Finals held at Edgeworth and Maitland over the weekend.

U14s played Broadmeadow Magic and took the lead early in the half only to be equalised just before half time with a penalty. The took the lead again in the second half with a well taken free kick but a send off for a second yellow card reduced the team to 10 men and shortly after an equaliser ensured the match ended 2-2. In the 20 minutes of extra time, the numerical disadvantage plus a number of injuries in the team recording its first and loss in 2020.

U16s took on Lambton Jaffas and succeeded in pulling away to a 2-0 lead before a send-off and a penalty brought the score to 2-1 for a tense finish. Despite this the 2020 Premiers held on and collected their second title of the season as Grand Final winners.
