Round 7 of the NPL Youth competition of Northern NSW has Newcastle Olympic away to Adamstown Rosebuds. In football there is a cliché “Never under-estimate your opponent”! This will be echoed by Olympic coaching staff of all four age groups this weekend.

In U13s our opponent is at the bottom of the table with no points and a goal deficit of -43 goals in 6 matches! On paper U13s Olympic are favorites to collect the 3 points but they will have to work hard for it.

In U14s Newcastle Olympic head the points table on 15 points with Adamstown Rosebuds occupying 7th spot on 7 points. Again the Olympic team are favorites on paper but again we’ll have to say “Never under-estimate your opponent”.

In U15s, Newcastle Olympic have maximum points from 6 matches to Adamstown’s zero points from as many matches. Sporting from their comfortable victory against equal league leaders Charlestown Azzuri last weekend, the U15s cannot afford to take this game lightly.

In U16s, Newcastle Olympic are in 2nd spot while Adamstown in 7th. Again the team in blue are favorite but again they need to work for the result.

On a sunny and dry day at Darling St Oval, U13s began with a 3-1 loss to Olympic. This places them 7th in their respective age group and 8 points behind league leaders.

The U14s had little difficulty collecting all three points with an emphatic display which saw them score 4-0 and hit the woodwork half a dozen times.

The U15s had a tight first half but in the 2nd half they stepped up a gear and ran out comfortable winners by 5-1. This leaves them in 1st spot on the table and the 25th consecutive win.

Lastly, U16s had little difficulty winning 3-0 and also occupying 1st place on the points table.

NPL Youth: U15s Newcastle Olympic vs Charlestown Azzuri clash of the Titans

118236506_1392106414321925_4754033461554287927_o (2)

 

Round 6 of the Youth NPL brings a clash of the two league leaders in the U15s age group, Newcastle Olympic and Charlestown Azzuri. Both teams have played 5 matches and have won all five with Olympic ahead on goal difference. Who will remain at the top of the u15s points table after Saturday’s match?

The Olympic team last dropped points at Darling St Oval on the 24th August 2019! They have won EVERY single competition game ever since! Last year Olympic won the minor Premiership 26 points ahead of Charlestown while defeating them 1-0 at Lisle Carr Oval and 2-1 at Darling St Oval. Impressive statistics but all this is history! It all goes on the line at 12.20 on Saturday at Darling St Oval.

Will Olympic be in 1st place alone after the match or will the Azzuri put an end to Olympic’s 24 game consecutive winning run?

In the remaining age groups u13s will be wanting to follow on from their gutsy 2-1 victory at Valentine last week to bring them into the top 4. Azzuri are currently in 4th spot on 9 points while Olympic sit in 6th spot on 7.

U14s who are outright league leaders in their age group and are favourites in the fixture against the Azzuri who sit in 4th! The big question is if the Azzuri can overcome a pre-season mauling they suffered at the hands of this Olympic team to put up a good performance of the day?

Finally, high flying U16s will be on que for another attacking display against 7th placed Azzuri. Olympic sit on 2nd spot on the ladder behind league leaders Lambton Jaffas who they have already played and defeated this year. Olympic have scored a staggering 23 goals in their past three outings and are only 2nd on the ladder due to a washed out match in Tarree which was deemed a draw!

Plenty to play for on Saturday morning at Darling St Oval. Good luck to all the teams and players and a thought for our canteen staff who will be serving their goodies throughout the day.

NPL Youth: Newcastle Olympic dominate Valentine FC

img_7477-2

Newcastle Olympic youth teams came away from the CB Complex with four wins from four games against Valentine FC.

On a wet and miserable day U13s opened proceedings with a hard fought 2-1 win which brings them just outside the top 4 on the points table. U14s then took centre stage smashing 10 goals past a hapless Valentine side which entrenches them in 1st spot in their age group. U15s continued their merry-go-round with a 3-2 victory in which they missed countless opportunities for a higher score and remain in 1st spot as usual. U16s finished off the day with a 8-1 win and a return to the top of the mountain in their age group. A fine achievement for our youth and a long awaited return to Darling St Oval next Saturday against Charlestown Azzuri.

NPL Youth: U15s Newcastle Olympic are away to Valentine FC

George vs Valo

After a busy week for our Youth NPL teams all four age groups are away to Valentine FC on Saturday. U13s and U16s played midweek catch up games against Lambton Jaffas while half the U14s and U15s squads were involved in matches in Sydney with the Northern NSW rep squads.

Newcastle Olympic teams will be favourites to win on Saturday but such games usually come with surprises. U13s have only one win from four games and will look to make amends this week. U14s sit on equal 1st spot on the points table and will want to ensure they remain there after Saturday. U15s are also 1st with 4 wins from 4 matches and will be looking to continuing their winning run. Finally, U16s are fresh from clipping the wings of league leaders by 4-1 and will be hoping to climb from 2nd to 1st spot after Saturday.

The best of luck for an injury free and a great game of football to the players of both teams.

NPL Youth: U15s overcome Maitland Magpies to make it 4 wins from 4 games

Olympic pic

 

Playing their 2nd match in 5 days, U15s Newcastle Olympic had no problem collecting another 3 points that brings them to equal first spot on the points table.

In a tough game played under windy and cold conditions at Cooks Square Park the boys in blue had to work hard against a tough opponent who was not prepared to lay down their arms easily. Despite this they were able to take some of the many chances created and lead 3-0 at half time.

The second half proved as tough as the first half with both teams battling for every ball. Olympic took a 4-0 lead but the Maitland players didn’t drop their heads and continued to compete for every ball. They were rewarded in the end by a long-range consolation goal which brought the final score to 4-1.

Not a pretty game but another 3 points which brings the U15s on equal first spot on the points table.

NPL Youth: U15s Newcastle Olympic take on the Maitland Magpies

George Tsamouras vs Maitland

After their great display midweek against Lambton Jaffas the U15s Newcastle Olympic juggernaut continues on Sunday at Cooks Square Park against the Maitland Magpies.

Cooks Square Park has been a happy hunting ground for the boys in blue over the past two seasons, having conceded just 1 goal and scoring 24!

Each season is different however and Maitland’s narrow 2-1 loss to Charlestown Azzuri would indicate that we should be in for a competitive game on Sunday. The best of luck for a great game of football to the players of both teams.

NPL Youth: Newcastle Olympic far too strong for Lambton Jaffas

29

U15s Newcastle Olympic took on Lambton Jaffas on Wednesday night at Darling St Oval as part of the Round 2 washed out fixture and recorded a 12-1 win!

The game began at a frantic pace with both teams looking to score. Olympic opened proceedings through a penalty only for Jaffas to equalise shortly after, due to a lapse in concentration by the blue’s defence. Olympic then carved up chances, hit the woodwork several times and ended the half 4-1 in front.

The second half began with goals almost from kick off with Olympic showing they were not going to sit on the score. They peppered the Jaffas goal, hitting the woodwork several times and scoring some great beautifully worked team and individual goals.

The smile for the coaching staff of Olympic was not the win or the score line but the work rate of the team from beginning to end. Every Olympic player showed hunger and played with the same intensity from beginning to end.

Earlier in the night U14s defeated Lambton Jaffas by 5-1 after leading 5-0 at the break.

The Jaffas team will have a lot of familiar faces from last year’s Adamstown Rosebud team but this will not worry the boys in blue.
