FNSW 18/19 PL2 R7 Wrap

Round 7 of the 18/19 Football NSW Premier League 2 competition was a home round taking on West City Crusaders – the only club that Boomerangs teams had yet to come up against so far this season. The Crusaders were well set at the bottom of the Club Championship table, so it was hoped that the Boomerangs could pick up valuable points across the day’s matches and to also enhance teams’ opportunity to make finals.

Development Squad Matches
West City Crusaders have no development squads, so the Boomerangs youngest teams played off against each other, the 9 boys pushing as hard as they could against the 11/12 girls and the 10 boys taking on the 11 boys in what is always a close encounter.

Round 6 of the 18/19 Football NSW Premier League 2 competition had the Boomerangs club on the road for the fifth time in the first six rounds of season 18/19. The opposition was Phoenix Futsal, a club playing out of the Hornsby PCYC. Rounds against Phoenix in previous seasons have always been closely contested, and this round would likely be no different.

Development Squad Matches
The 11 boys and 11/12 girls started the day’s action at Hornsby on small courts against Phoenix opposition. The two teams performed extremely well against a robust opposition and came out on the positive side of the goal-scoring ledger (even though these games are never officially scored).

These two teams are coming along nicely as the young Boomerangs learn what is needed to compete at this NSW Premier League level.

Round 5 of the 18/19 Football NSW Premier League 2 competition had the Boomerangs club on the road again, this time to the home of Southern Districts (SD) Raiders at the Fairfield Youth and Leisure Centre. SD Raiders are relatively new to the FNSW PL futsal competition and were promoted from last season’s State League to compete this year in PL2. As the two clubs had never previously met in any age group, it was difficult to predict the outcomes of these matches.

Development Squad Matches
The club arranged a match for the 9/10 boys against UTS Northside at Dee Why. A group of enthusiastic players, driven by dedicated parents and coached by Ollie McCarthy and Parsa Tabatabaei, drove the extra hour or so to take on UTS. The boys reportedly played very solidly against a tough and unwielding UTS boys side, and accounted for themselves well.

The 11 boys and 11/12 girls started the day’s action at Fairfield on small courts against local SD Raiders opposition. Both matches were fast, and exciting, with the boys conceding a few more than they scored, and the girls accounting for themselves very well scoring some terrific goals and defending well. Both teams played well in stages, but need to put together complete forty minute games so as not to provide an opportunity for the opposition to so freely score goals!

Round four of the 18/19 Football NSW Premier League 2 competition had the Boomerangs club at home for the first time this season, hosting stalwart FNSW PL club Sydney City Eagles. It was terrific to be playing at the AIS once again and certainly nice to not have to travel up the highway after the three consecutive away rounds to kick off the season.

Development Squad Matches
The 10 and 11 boys took on Sydney City Eagles 11 boys team in two matches preceding the competitive matches of the day. The 11 boys matched up well with the Eagles and put together some sparkling play, giving some hint as to their future capabilities. The 10 boys found it a bit tougher, but again showed many positive signs against a tough (and older) opposition.

The Eagles club does not have an 11/12 girls development team, so the early match of the day had the Boomers 11/12 girls take on the 9 boys, in what was mostly a one-sided affair with the bigger and stronger girls dominating for long periods.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 0 – 7 Sydney City Eagles (ht 0 – 4)

Round three of the Football NSW Premier League 2 competition had the Boomerangs Club travel to Redfern to take on Sydney Futsal Club at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in the nine competitive age groups.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
The 11/12 girls and the 11 boys took on Sydney Futsal Club opposition at Endeavour Sports High in the afternoon and made a terrific account of themselves grabbing two solid wins from the matches played against the youngest Sydney Futsal squads.

Sydney Futsal does not have development academies, so the 9 boys and 10 boys headed over to Valentine Sports Park to gatecrash the PL1 fixture between hosted by Inner West Magic. The boys had matches against both Magic and UTS Northside. We thank those clubs for allowing the Boomers youngest boys teams to play some matches against strong PL1 club teams. Some mixed results for the boys, but a great contribution to their learning and development as futsal players. By the time they reach the competitive 12’s age group, they will be seasoned professionals! Continue reading “FNSW 18/19 PL2 R3 Wrap”

Round two of the Football NSW Premier League 2 competition had the Boomerangs Club travel to Wollongong to take on the South Coast Taipans at the University of Wollongong.

A Wollongong away trip always seems a lot closer than the Sydney sojourns, and the glimpses of ocean and beach add value to the weekend – especially for those players and families that combine this away trip with a short weekend break.

Futsal rounds at the Taipan’s home at the University of Wollongong are always hotly contested and fairly even affairs and this trip proved to be no different, with the Taipans winning more of the day’s matches, but the Boomers coming home with more Club Championship points (calculated on seven age groups, 14 boys and older).

Development Squad Matches
The Taipans have a great junior development program and it was terrific for our Academy/Development teams to be able to play some really competitive matches against the youngest from the Wollongong region. The matches were, on the whole, fairly evenly contested with only a few one-sided games amongst them. Importantly, the games gave the youngest players and their coaches more opportunities to develop as individual players and as teams – and early in the season, this is already starting to show.

It’s also always good to see the juniors hang around for a while after their matches to support the older age groups compete – they learn by listening and doing, but also by observing the skills, passing, positional plays and teamwork of the older age groups.

After several months of preparation, the club started it’s FNSW PL2 season with an away trip to the south west of Sydney to take on Raiders Futsal, a club which finished second on the Club Championship ladder last season. Raiders Futsal always provides strong teams across all age groups and matches are often closely fought with increasing intensity as the age groups progress.

Development Squad Matches
As Raiders Futsal have no younger age boys teams below 11s, the Boomerangs 9 and 10 boys ended up travelling to Windsor to have a series of matches against the Mountain Majik club. The 11 boys and the 11/12 girls had early matches against Raiders Futsal opposition and acquited themselves very well. The 11/12 girls probably had the edge over their Raiders Futsal counterparts, who were a few players short of a full squad.  The 11 boys were involved in a cracker of a match against Raiders with the two evenly-matched sides exchanging goals between periods of solid defence. All the 11 boys played well – with several of them rewarded with a bench spot with the 12 boys.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 3 – 12 Raiders Futsal (ht 1 – 5)
