Newcastle Olympic has become the first club to be crowned Club Champions in both Women’s and Men’s football in the same year.
Fresh from winning the Herald WPL Premiership and Grand Final a week ago, Olympic have secured their 10th Men’s Club Championship, with 5 of those in the 7 years of the NPL era.
In winning this unique ‘double’, Newcastle Olympic has today reinforced its position as the leading all-round club in Northern NSW. The Club Championship aggregates the performance of club teams through all 7 men’s and 4 women’s premier competitions from 1st Grade through to the youth grades. It is a demonstration of strength across the whole club.
“To be the first club to win both women’s and men’s Club Championships in the same season, to have all of our premier teams in the finals series, is a fantastically proud achievement for Olympic”. said Mr Sofianos.
“The key word here is ‘Club’. This involves a commitment by everyone at our club that goes well beyond one team. It requires a high level of excellence across all our eleven premier senior and youth women’s and men’s teams.” said Club President George Sofianos.
“From the day we committed to entering the WPL, our focus has been on building ‘One Club’ – women, men, girls and boys. From first grade through to youth grades. While we are obviously thrilled at winning these premierships and championships, what is even more important is that we have integrated everyone into the one premier club.” said Club President George Sofianos.
