    Thought it would be easier to start a thread on this so all the conversations are in the one place.

    FFA Cup in a few weeks time. You would think other games before that would be announced quite soon. One against an A-League or NPL club is a must.

    Hi everyone
    We will be announcing three pre-season trial matches today. Seems some of our oppositions were a bit more confident all details had been finalised to make announcements than we were but that is all ok. Jets and Charlestown matches are two of them - will have full details out later today. Won't be long at all until everyone will get to see the boys in action.

    Love how pro active the club is being this time around and love how well informed Shaun is keeping us, has obviously made a point of being better in that regard and deserves a solid hand shake.
    The Charlestown match is a smart one in particular as they’re probably a little better than Maitland atm. And it’ll give the boys a taste of what Scum NPL is like, because it is different to Sydney NPL, the Sutherland game will be a good morning down at pluim. Love it.
    Will assume the club is waiting till after the cup match to finalise the next block of friendlies.

    Charlestown (previously Highfields Azzurri) is an ex-club of mine. Fortunate to play two seasons of National Youth League with them when Newcastle has no national senior team. Very much looking forward to this.

    Be nice if we could go regional again, a la Tamworth, Mudgee, Orange etc. Do love a pre-season road trip!

    So we're the club now that gets applause from the fans for doing the things we're supposed to do because we haven't done them for so long???

    Do the CEO’s of other clubs go on the fan forum and offer updates? I don’t know, thought this was likely unique.

    I've got a few mates who are SFC and WSW members. They are all amazed at how engaged the club is with our members. Shaun has always seemed to be been as transparent as he can (with obvious commercial-in-confidence limits). The only times we have really been neglected is when Shaun has had to pick up the slack for other departures.

    I actually think we are very lucky to have the access we do. I used to be a member of an NSL club (when I lived in Sydney). There the silence was deafening.

    FP i was being facetious if you couldn't tell. Shaun being on the forum was not what i was talking about. It was more to do with organising pre season games and being "proactive" you know, all those things that are just such a bonus to our membership and what makes us special. Sets us apart from the rest.

    Lawrie is quite active on social media though and quite transparent there.

    I don't blame him for avoiding that forum. It is horrendous.

    Just as a heads up to anyone who will be attending the pre-season games - we will be looking to run some buses to the Away Venues, we are waiting on some confirmation and pricing. In the meantime we are taking a register of interest, so we can best plan :) If you're interested in coming along, the link is below:

    (Note - at this stage it will be BUS ONLY - We are looking at a ticket/bus package but waiting on ticketing information from the other clubs as this is out of our control. by putting in your register of interest, it doesn't secure you a spot on the bus. Pricing is TBA)
