Sure is a shame.,was looking forward to seeing how he progressed as a Wanderer. Will still keep an eye on him though.

 

Considering the Youth League venturing into the Prenier league, I'm wandering about the NYL this season. Does this mean there won't be a NYL this season?

I hope bloody so.

 

Just was t sure how many teams had teams going into the Prem League already and within the next two years.

 

Still confused as to why our youth comp would be part of a winter comp and stray from the A and W League seasons.

 

Actually I'm not confused, I understand the reasoning in moving, just seems out of place. Also annoys me that my dream of the 3 leagues playing on the same day at same location is drifting further out of reality.

FFA cuts National Youth League back to eight rounds as part of A-League overhaul

Football Federation Australia will unveil the biggest overhaul of youth development in more than a decade, effectively scrapping the existing format of the National Youth League to give clubs a streamlined and exclusive control of the development of their young talent. 

For the first time since the collapse of the National Soccer League in 2004, all top tier Australian football clubs will be able to tailor players for the senior team from the age of 12. A renewed competition format will make the National Youth League the shortest elite competition in Australia while including the youth teams of all A-League clubs into the state federations' National Premier League structures. 

 
The previous structure of an 18-round home and away draw between A-League youth teams has been scrapped in favour of an eight-round competition plus finals. The nine A-League teams and the FFA Centre of Excellence team will form two five-team pools which will include a condensed home and away series beginning on November 7 with a grand final to be played in late January.Following the completion of the shortened National Youth League competition, every youth team will then compete in the 26-week National Premier League structures in their relevant state which begin in February or early March. 

"The Foxtel National Youth League has been adapted for the upcoming season in line with the elite player development pathway as we all work together to produce quality footballers for the A-League and the national teams," FFA national technical director Eric Abrams said. "From next season all nine Australian A-League clubs will have their youth teams playing in the relevant National Premier League competitions over the winter months against senior men's teams and then come together for an abbreviated National Youth League season."

The move has been made to allow a more streamlined approach to youth development in Australia where the best young players will remain with their A-League clubs' youth teams for an extended time and for more games. The National Youth League teams of each A-League club will take part in the senior divisions of the state premier league structures, allowing the best youth players to play against adults as well as older teenagers.

The changes will allow HAL clubs to have under-13s, 14s, 15s and 16s teams playing in the NPL junior structure. "It is an exciting step forward for football in Australia as our talented youth players will be able to take part in a coordinated year-long program in a consistent environment that will help develop better players," Abrams said. 

It is understood the pools of the National Youth League may be divided by geography to help significantly cut costs for many of the A-League clubs. Western Sydney Wanderers, Sydney FC, Central Coast Mariners, Newcastle Jets and the FFA CoE team (Canberra) are likely to be pitted together. Melbourne Victory, Melbourne City, Brisbane Roar, Adelaide and Perth Glory are set to be the other pool.

Our NYL squad will enter the NSWPL2 competition in March 2016.

will be cool if we can get a decent crowd to the winter games in NSWPL 2

 

Will largely depend on where we play. 

Blacktown International Sportspark doesn't have the food & beverage outlets in the vicinity, that would add to the matchday experience.
