Hi all,

The Club hope and trust that all are looking after themselves in these unprecedented times.

We will do our best to keep you up-to-date with the latest information from Northern NSW Football, and the FFA.

Over the last couple of nights, all NPL clubs and WPL clubs participated in separate zoom conferences. One vital point that came out in the discussion is that the various competitions are postponed, not cancelled.

Of course it is far too early to predict a starting date.

Clubs have until Friday week to provide comment to Northern NSW Football on their thoughts on what options the 2020 season may take, depending of course when we will be able to recommence the various competitions. Our Club will send their appropriate response.

Please stay safe in the upcoming months.

Please find a link that may assist you with any questions

FFA: Suspension of grassroots football activity

200316- COVID-19 PC -6818 (1)

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today advised that, after considered discussion with its nine State and Territory Member Federations and assessment of developments today, sanctioned grassroots football competitions and associated training would be suspended for the next four weeks.

The decision will take effect from 12:00am on Wednesday, 18 March 2020 until Tuesday, 14 April 2020.

The decision comes as the latest in a series of measures being introduced by the FFA to combat the ongoing spread of COVID-19 following the announcement of its COVID-19 Guidelines yesterday and places the concerns, health and wellbeing of the Australian football and wider community as the highest priority.

FFA Chief Executive Officer James Johnson explained that while disappointing, reducing community gatherings would help slow the spread of the virus and that this was the driving factor in the decision. 

“Our decision today follows extensive discussions with all of Australia’s nine State and Territory Member Federations, taking into consideration the latest feedback from all levels of the football community,” Johnson said. 

“We are also taking into consideration the ongoing response by both the broader international and Australian communities which is evolving almost on an hourly basis now. 

“We also recognise that there have been some recent material developments which have changed the landscape significantly, including the decisions made by the Victorian and ACT Governments to declare States of Emergency late yesterday afternoon. Today, more schools, universities and also public sporting facilities have announced that they will be closing so we have had to respond quickly to this.

“It is very regrettable that grassroots football will not proceed for the next month, but as a good and responsible citizen, we recognise that our game of approximately 1.96 million participants, has a significant role to play in slowing the spread of the virus. 

“More Australians play grassroots football than any other team sport in the country and we have been able to listen to the voice of our community, through the establishment of the National COVID-19 Working Committee and our Guidelines, who have expressed a desire to contribute more to the nation at this time through a unified and Whole of Game response.

“As a game we need to be responsive and agile in how we deal with this situation, and we are working together around the clock to deal with this challenge. We will continue to assess our position regularly to ensure that it is reflective of the most accurate state of affairs and views of the game.

“I would like to acknowledge how Member Federations have worked so constructively with FFA, through the Working Committee and established Guidelines, to arrive at what is right for our players, coaches, officials, their families and the wider community. We are meeting on a daily basis and will continue to do so, taking into account the latest Government medical advice and community sentiment.”

FFA will continue to communicate new developments in the lead-up to 14 April 2020.

WPL: Adamstown beat New Lambton, Merewether win over Olympic in round two of Herald Women’s Premier League

90309558_1346427095544199_8621506656074727424_o

It was not the most polished performance but Merewether coach Scott Ellis was heartened by United’s 2-1 victory over Newcastle Olympic on Sunday as Adamstown seized top spot with their own one-goal win against defending champions New Lambton.

Olympic have been widely tipped as Herald Women’s Premier League title favourites and opened the season with an 8-0 rout of Mid Coast.

They dominated possession in their round-two match at Darling Street Oval but it was Merewether who struck first on the counter attack through Ellie Butler around the 30-minute mark.

United goalkeeper Alison Logue then denied Olympic’s Jemma House twice before sending one of her kicks long to be nodded into space by Katy Gray for Lori Depczynski to pick up and calmly slot past advancing shot-stopper Hillary Anthony-Benson for a 2-0 half-time lead.

Georgia Little put Olympic on the score sheet 10 minutes into the second half.

“We’re a long way from the finished product,” Ellis said.

“We gave the ball away a lot when we shouldn’t have … but we were pretty lethal on the counter attack, which I was really happy with.

“It was one of those grinding wins where the girls worked really hard to shut down their threats, and they’ve got a lot of them. We needed this to see exactly where we are.”

Olympic coach Harmonie Attwill felt her side dominated but were not “as clinical as we needed to be”.

“We didn’t finish as well as we could have or should have,” Attwill said. “We got in behind a lot but we just couldn’t put it in the back of the net and obviously when you’ve got Al in goals it makes a difference.”

Jets striker Jenna Kingsley is expected to make her first appearance for Olympic next weekend.

Adamstown backed up their 4-1 win over Thornton in round one by beating the Eagles 2-1 at No.2 Sportsground on Sunday.

The back-to-back victories propelled them to six points, two ahead of second-placed Merewether.

Rosebud led 1-0 at half-time after New Lambton’s Kate Heap scored into her own goal around the 10-minute mark. Kimmy Trappett made it 2-0 with a long-range effort from just outside the box around the 70th before Eagles captain Stacey Day scored shortly after from a corner.

Adamstown coach Ryan Campbell described the match as “a good challenge” for his young side.

“It was probably one of those ones where we looked like we were a bit worried about playing New Lambton, so it was good to get a result,” Campbell said. “I don’t think it was our greatest performance but I think they probably needed to get a result like that to start to believe they’re actually going to be competitive.”

Sophia Laurie and Ellie Brown scored as Warners Bay opened their season with a 2-1 victory over Mid Coast in Taree on Sunday. The Panthers led 2-0 at the break. Chelsea Hall scored for the hosts.

The round-two match between Broadmeadow and Thornton scheduled for Friday night at Magic Park was postponed as a precaution after an unwell Magic WPL player awaited test results for coronavirus.

The player was cleared of coronavirus on Sunday and Magic’s rescheduled round-one clash with the Panthers is set to go ahead at Magic Park on Tuesday night.

Points: Adamstown 6, Merewether 4, Olympic 3, Warners Bay 3, New Lambton 1, Thornton 0, Magic 0, Mid Coast 0.

90344172_1346426565544252_3078806340739530752_o

A great day for Newcastle Olympic’s first ever Women’s Premier League home games, if not being reflected on the scoreboard.

U14s and U17s struggled against strong Merewether teams, only for our Reserve Grade to storm home with a thumping win.

First grade dominated their match and if possession and field positioning determined the winner, we deserved six points. Two goals on the break sunk our brave girls, who threw everything at them in the second half, coming up one goal short. We’re already looking forward to the reverse fixture.

First grade WPL: Merewether won 2-1
Reserve Grade: Olympic won 10-0
U/17: Merewether won 5-1
U14: Merewether won 8-2

U13s lead 3-0 but a spirited Maitland team fought back to level the score in the second half and to run out 4-3 eventual winners. U14s, U15s, and U16s completed formalities with little resistance.

 U/13: Maitland won 4-3.
 U/14: Olympic won 11-1.
 U/15: Olympic won 7-0.
 U/16: Olympic won 5-0.

Newcastle Olympic vs Kahibah on Monday 16th March at Harold Knight Oval, Gateshead

Kick off at 6.30pm

U9s, U10s, U11s SAP:

IMG_0752 IMG_0757

U9s Blue Team:

We started off very slowly and went down 1-0 early. Valentine were worthy leaders and gave a very good account of themselves. We improved and became more aggressive as the half went on and lead at halftime. A good half time talk and a big improvement in our passing and running off the ball saw us take control of the game and we ran out winners. Best on the day were Jude Lewis Mat Cahill and Kai Hodgson.

U10s Blue Team:

The blue team played some lovely football in their game against Valentine yesterday. After an even first half, the boys passed their way through Valentine in the second half, scoring some fabulous team goals in the process. The final goal of the match started with the goal keeper and ended 10 passes later with a cross and header to round out a great day.

U10s White Team:

Another positive performance by 10’s White. First half was a tight affair with both teams battling to gain control of the game. The boys created many chances, forcing some scrambling defence and quality saves from the opposing keeper. The second half saw an improvement in all thirds of the pitch, despite the deteriorating weather conditions. The boys were able to build on their 1-0 lead by crafting out a 9-0 final result. Coaches Mark and Peter were really happy the way the boys listened and adapted their play after the half time break, while still playing quality football.

U11s Blue Team:

With what we know was going to be one of our hardest games of the season it was very impressive to see the boys come away with a well-deserved win over the Jaffas.

 With some outstanding individual runs, ball movement creating great team play they could not get into the sheds quick enough to sing the Olympic Team song once that full time whistle was blown.

 Well done to two of our new boys Nate & Henry (Goalkeeper) who put their nerves aside to come up against their old Team Mates.

 Well done to all the Boys, Dean & Jono  

U11’s White Team:

It was our first game of the season today, we welcomed 3 new players and are very proud of the effort from all of the boys. Throughout the game we dominated both possession and field position. With players moving to their second or third preferred position in the second half, it was exciting to see that the boys are willing to learn and adapt to multiple roles. We will continue to teach the boys to play in multiple roles and improve their understanding of the game. On the rare occurrence when needed today it was great to see our goalkeeper using the skills he has been working on at training.
