hahah money man it is true we did have alot of boys wanting to play for us this season but with most of our boys staying with us from last year and loyalty gettting the better of me we only had a couple open spots to fill and it was basicaly 1st in best dressed, we did get a young striker and a very good mid so hopefuly they gel in well, i wish we could have taken all the boys on but we would of had a squad of 20. It will be intresting to see how we go this year, cant wait for it to start.
I beleive that the pendle hill team has recruited a young italian from the middle of the desert (walgette), Some solid scouting around nsw has been done in the off season it looks. He has assured me that he will scored a goal a game throughout this season.
hahah yeah that is true swinno, we did sign a young italian boy, he isnt to new to the team tho he has played with us before. funny that you mention he was in walgot last year, he told me he needed the year off last year to work at his nonnas vineyard in italy! he is a skillfull player but has a big mouth ahahh so it will be intresting. lets hope he lives up to the goal promise. how are the 1's looking mate?

We had a decent enough year. Snuck into 4th and then some how got through to the gf on goal difference (and instantly became fans of that round robin format haha) but were never in the final game and went down. Happy just to make it though.
Looking at the teams as they stand (there could be some appeals and last minute changes who knows), looks like there will be a couple of new teams who have either come up from 21's or are newly formed as I don't see where they could have come from last year if they were seniors. Those being Auburn, Ermington and Rouse Hill.
I think Wenty will be the team you guys played last year in the 10's, the Sri Lankan/Indians who have been around a while now. The other Winsto team I think will be the one's who won 12's last year. Toonie hard to say but they could be the Toonie who finished 3rd in 12's last year.
Will be interesting to see how the draw balances out given we're an 8 team comp. It's guaranteed to rain at some point so there could be some debate as to whether teams should have to play another team for the 3rd time (as will be scheduled to happen in rounds 15-18) or whether any rounds washed out from 1-14 will be replayed instead to make things even.
I'm sure after last years debarcle in 10's you guys would be a bit sick of problems with the draw, particularly the latter rounds 15-18...

winstobronx, the other winsto team is new, not the 12s from last year. It's been cobbled together from the remains of 17/2s last year (no 18s this year), as well as some ex U21s, and some other ring-ins....

Gator, we've had one trial which was a couple of weeks ago now. Wasn't a bad showing given we hadn't trained previously but wish we'd had another one before the comp starts. There just aren't enough grounds available this year for some reason. Maybe cricket has taken off this summer after all the success the national team had losing the Ashes last year...
