So it seems there are moves afoot to have Central Coast Mariners run Central Coast FC again in 2016. Conveniently, Central Coast FC are leading the club championship (though form has dipped, so they might want to get their skates back on and open up the gap again to the chasers. If they *do* get promoted and the Mariners run the show again, CCMA will get a jump on Sydney FC Academy and Western Sydney Wanderers Academy (who will be in NPL NSW Men's 2 in 2016). Doubly cool would be if North Shore Mariners (formerly known as Northbridge) got promoted to NPL2 from State League 1. Western NSW Mariners are likely to stay in SL1, which becomes NPL3 next year. We would then have Central Coast Mariners Academy in NPL1, North Shore Mariners in NPL2 and Western NSW Mariners in NPL3. If the current construction boom keeps on and the COE is finished, the club will be set to get back on the path of expansion and empire building that the GFC f**ked up, and the FFA and FNSW competitions are perfectly set up to support it. Could be very exciting times!
