If you’re looking for a football fix over the international break, get down to the Central Coast Mariners Centre of Excellence to see the Mariners Foxtel Youth-League team in action against the Newcastle Jets Youth. Kick-off is 10:30am and entry is FREE.
After a morale boosting win in Canberra for Ray Junna’s Youth League outfit, the Mariners come into round two full of confidence against their nearest rivals.
The Mariners Youth were forced to come from behind twice in their season-opening away outing against Canberra United. Thanks to goals by Josh Macdonald, Alec Vinci and the fortune of an own goal, our Youth team emerged 3-2 winners at the death.
On Saturday morning, they face the might of the Newcastle Jets Youth who will be eager to bounce back from their round 1, 2-0 defeat. Despite creating a number of chances throughout the game, the Jets Youth fell at home to Sydney FC Youth.
Due to an international break in the Hyundai A-League, all eyes will be on both squads to see which first team players could be added to both squads in a bid to secure crucial match fitness.
