"Don't choke"
Apparently their coach was giving it to them after the game for losing their discipline and biting back to the "f**kwits on the sideline". Hah.

I loved the centre forward giving you guys the "Dodd shrug" miliseconds after his brain said ..."dont give them the finger".

I swear no one in the club knows how to defend. Time to bring Dutchy back in to help the coaches.

Going to watch my mates son who plays for nepean fc under 14's against CCF on Sunday at Pluim.

Whats the difference between CCF teams and the academy teams?

From what I have seen, the Academy and CCF hold joint trials in each age group. Mariners Academy selects the players they want and then CCF, Soccer 5s really, select their squad from those players not selected by Mariners Academy.

So effectively a lower division, B team if you like

And both draw from all the clubs across the coast?

Effectively yes - but it must be remembered that not all talented players trial for these teams for one reason or another - cost, parents commitment to travel to train up to 3 nights a week and travel to Sydney every fortnight would be the main factors.

FNSW Youth Competitions are 3 tiered - NPL1 Youth (for NPL1 & NPL 2 clubs - CCM Academy teams fall here), NPL2 Youth (for NPL3 & State League clubs) and then Association Youth League (Clubs are run by the various associations - CCF teams fall in here).

Thanks appreciate that. Here's hoping they beat my mates son's team who are proping up the ladder
