Academy: NPL NSW season underway on Sunday


NPL NSW action begins this weekend for our Academy sides, with a full days worth of football for Jets fans at Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility (LMRFF) to kick off proceedings for our boys teams.

Meanwhile, our women are on the road in Macarthur looking to get their season off to a good start with our top-grade girls bolstered by a swag of Westfield W-League experience.

A first venture into the NPL 4 NSW Men’s competition awaits for our most senior boys Academy sides, with our men taking on Prospect United on Sunday night.

Prospect United are also new to the NPL 4 NSW Men’s competition, and will too be looking to start their season off with a win.

The three Jets sides in the mix – our U/20s, U/19s, and U/17s (who play in first grade, U/20s, and U/18s respectively) – will follow a day of football from our four junior boys sides at LMRFF, who take on Dunbar Rovers in the NPL 2 NSW Youth competition.

Meanwhile, in Sydney on that same day, our women will get their campaign underway from U/13s through to U/19s at Macarthur Rams.

Our senior girls’ side, coached by Ash Wilson, feature a number of Westfield W-League representatives with the likes of Tessa Tamplin, Paige Kingston-Hogg, and Renee Pountney sure to be keen to impress throughout a long winter.
