NNSWF Premier Competitions – 2020 Season Draws Released


Today, Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) has released the season draws for 2020 across it’s three (3) Premier Competitions – National Premier Leagues Northern NSW (NPL NNSW), Herald Women’s Premier League (WPL) and NEW FM Northern League One (NL1).

NNSWF Football Operations Manager Liam Bentley predicts some highlights for players, coaches and fans to look forward to in the New Year.

“The season looks to start with some cracking games with Grand Final rematches kicking off  all three leagues,” said Bentley.

“NPL Champions Edgeworth will host Premiers Maitland FC at Jack McLaughlin Oval, Cooks Hills will be out for revenge against Belswans in NL1 and Merewether United out to prove a point against last year’s double-winners New Lambton in WPL.

“We also hope to replicate the drama of last year’s final matchday with all Final Rounds in respective leagues being played being played simultaneously.”

All three competitions will experience a revamped finals series which will increase the importance of every match.

NPL and NL1 will have a five (5) team, four (4)-week finals series and Herald WPL, a four (4) team, three (3)-week finals series with every match resulting in progession or elimination and teams being rewarded for finishing higher on the ladder.

The NNSWF 2020 Season has already experienced some positive change with two NPL clubs confirming new identities: Charlestown City Blues FC now known as Charlestown Azzuri FC, and Hamilton Olympic FC now recognised as Newcastle Olympic FC.

We also see Herald WPL take a stride forward for 2021’s transition into the National Premier Leagues, with the addition of two of the region’s most successful NPL clubs into the league – with  South Wallsend JSC’s WPL program moving to Broadmeadow Magic FC and Wallsend FC’s WPL program moving to Newcastle Olympic FC.

Again, NNSWF is pleased to partner with Bar TV to stream all NPL NNSW first and reserve grade matches alongside selected matches of  Herald WPL.

”By coupling Friday Night and Saturday matches in 2020 we aim to bring our top level football to more spectators in 2020,” concluded Bentley.

Wallsend FC WPL to move to Newcastle Olympic FC


Newcastle Olympic FC will enter the Herald Women’s Premier League (WPL) for the first time in history for 2020, as Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) announces that Wallsend FC’s Herald WPL teams will join the club from today.

The move will see Newcastle Olympic entering teams into all four (4) Herald WPL grades which will include key personnel from Wallsend also joining the club to manage the program.

The arrangement will assist the 2019 NPL Club of the Year to continue its strong NPL program as well as increase the standards required of the Herald WPL competition in 2020 as the League aims to transition into Women’s NPL in 2021.

Newcastle Olympic FC President George Sofianos is beyond excited for the club to be involved in the women’s space and is looking forward to the value it will bring to the club.

“Women’s football is a tremendous growth sport and we felt we needed to be part of this,” Sofianos said.

“Having a women’s program, in conjunction with our successful men’s program, it will add tremendous value to our club and we look forward to being a part of the Herald Women’s Premier League” he concluded.

With access to adequate facilities being a challenge for the women’s program previously, the players and coaches will now have further access to an NPL level venue, assisting NNSWF to ensure the long-term viability of the league.

Club Captain, Sophie Phillips, is equally as excited to become being a part of Newcastle Olympic FC.

“The support we’ve received has been fantastic and we have already been made to feel very welcome,”

“We hope to bring a lot of success to Olympic in the Women’s Premier League.” confirmed Phillips.

NNSWF is aware of the challenge of resources in terms of volunteers, accredited coaches and access to adequate facilities for Women’s Premier League Clubs and believe the arrangement between the two clubs will enable better access and NPL expertise to help players and coaches involved in the women’s game to take the next step towards entering the National Premier League Women’s (NPLW) in 2021.

Newcastle Olympic FC is not the only NPL NNSW Club to have a Herald WPL team join their ranks ready for season 2020, with South Wallsend JFC having joined Broadmeadow Magic in October.

NPL: Newcastle Olympic add to midfield stocks

Newcastle Olympic coach Peter McGuinness believes Jets Youth player Tom Curran will give his squad greater depth in midfield for the 2020 Northern NSW NPL.

Curran, 19, has signed on at Olympic, who had already added striker Dino Fajkovic, goalkeeper Kane Runge, Scotsman Anthony Marenghi and utility Blake Green to their roster.

Fajkovic and Green return to the club, formerly known as Hamilton Olympic, after stints elsewhere.

Midfielder Jarryd Sutherland (Weston), winger Scott Pettit (Lambton Jaffas) and keeper Tyler Warren are departures.

Curran, a member of the Jets’ National Youth League squad, and Marenghi will boost Olympic’s midfield.

“He’s a good ball-playing midfielder, he can play as a six, eight or 10,” McGuinness said of Curran.

“He’s a good kid with a good upbringing, so he’s got a solid foundation and he’ll be good for us.”

McGuinness said he was happy with his squad, which will again include Japanese livewire Shinichi Kawachi.
