Newcastle Olympic FC begin their 2021 campaign with a trial match this Saturday afternoon , 23rd January at Darling Street Oval. The team are in their third week of training under new head coach, Joel Griffiths. Both Joel and assistant coach Glen Chapman have been working the team diligently, and the boys are looking forward to their first hit out of the year.

Their opponents on Saturday will be Manly FC, who are one of the leading clubs in the Sydney NPL competition.
