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.

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

* Guaranteed Game Time
Each of the Youth players must play a minimum of 30 minutes per match

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

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

The Central Coast Mariners today unveiled their first National Youth League (NYL) signings, with outstanding local striker Brady Smith and Orange product Nathan Sherlock signing on with the Mariners two months out from the kick off of the Hyundai A-Leagues new elite competition for young players.

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

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:

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?

. 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
