    FFA RELEASES NATIONAL YOUTH LEAGUE DRAW

    Football Federation Australia (FFA) today released the inaugural National Youth League 2008/09 season draw.

    The seven Australian based Hyundai A-League clubs will participate in the 21 round competition which will begin on Friday 26 September 2008.

    The establishment of a National Youth League competition is an important component of the National Football Development Plan, said FFA CEO, Ben Buckley.

    This is a competition which will provide an important link between elite youth football, the Hyundai A-League competition and the national representative teams, not only for players, but also coaches and referees.

    For the first time, talented young players will have an opportunity to play regular, quality competitive games regardless of whether they are part of the AIS program, the State sports institutes or the State football leagues.

    Football offers young, talented male athletes fantastic opportunities within Australia as well as unparalleled opportunities to represent Australia on the biggest stage in world sport, Buckley said.

    Of the 63 regular round fixtures, 32 matches will be played as curtain raisers to Hyundai A-League matches, whilst the remaining matches will be played at alternate venues on other dates.

    At the end of the 21 rounds, the top two teams will play-off in the National Youth League Grand Final on Saturday 21 February 2009, one week prior to the Grand Final in the Hyundai A-League competition.

    The National Youth League will feature the following competition rules:

    * Youth Player Age Range
    Youth players must be born between 1987 - 1991 to be eligible for the National Youth League 2008/09 season.

    Clubs may use up to 4 over-age players in their squads for National Youth League matches

    . is $1.4 mill exceptional enough?

    . psyched about the youth league though

    The matches at Pluim might actually be pleasant on a sunny Spring or Summer afternoon/night. At least I can leave the long johns at home. ;D

    Games at Pluim are to coinside with International weekends or the weekends the Mariners are not scheduled to play.

    Interesting that Sydney are playing predominiately in the South (apart from CUA & SFS) TEN AM?!??!!!!

    Games at Pluim will be an embarrasment.  How much grass will be there come September. It's like a mine field now.

    john_kowolski New Member

    This is a 'dumb' question on my behalf.

    Do they charge to go to Pluim? If so, will members get free admission with their cards?

    Also, will the games at Bluetongue be part of the ticket? (pre-match entertainment)

    Not sure if this is anywhere else

    I imagine that games at BT will be covered by your game ticket/membership and knowing Pluim, they will try v hard to sting people to get in. Stand by for free entry but $10 for the car park or some such stunt.

    Mind you, warm evening, few cold ones that fell into the bag by accident, watching the next generation of Kewells, Cahills etc. Well worth it

    marinermick Well-Known Member

    and the sydney game is at pluim

    bagging out the superstar winner from the razzle dazzle stand will be sweet

    Rowdy Well-Known Member

    Broke his leg, goooooone for the season.

    Oh well we can all take a box of Nutri-grain and throw it at him as he hobbles to the Pluim benches, not that he'll need any, apparently has a lifetime supply of the 3 holed stuff 4 being the FSuperstar.

    "Wheeeeere's yooooour Nutri-grain, where's your Nutri-grain!"  :piano:

    wasnt it a knee injury?
     
  14. dibo

    dibo Well-Known Member

    yup, ligament damage, i think he's already gone under the knife.

    During the Mariners Vs Roar game thought I heard twat Harper mention that Nik Mrdja and one other senior team player (Stringers?) played in a game with our NYL Team against Gladesville? on the Sat b4 the Brisbane game , saying that Lawrie thought he needed another week and that this game would do him good in regards to coming back from injury.

    Anybody have any details on this, Bueller, Bueller......Bueller?

    And while I'm at it, when are we going to hear some info as to WHO our NYL players are going to be. The comp kicks-off in 25 days!, Coonan, Coonan.....Coonan?
     
  16. bikinigirl

    bikinigirl Well-Known Member

    . interesting rowdy and also as mrdja was not on the bench for the main game (not suggesting he should have been there)

    . having just read your comments of the roar game in another thread, perhaps it was a good idea not to play nik against qld .... imagine what they could/would have done to his legs
     
  17. Jesus

    Jesus Jesus

    That was suggested. Was nik and stringers
     
  18. goingtoadisco

    goingtoadisco New Member

    I think our NYL team will be anounced when the squad is complete.
