Based on memory of reading some document from FNSW, the current regulations are the in PL (and only in PL) the youth are tied to the seniors or in other words all clubs with senior teams must have their youth teams in there.
If Parra FC seniors do get relegated, their youth (no matter how good) will have to drop out to make way for the youth of the newly promoted club.
I read that newsletter a few days after it came out. My first impression was that there was very very little in it about grassroots football which is GDSFA is all about. I can only assume/hope in the future issues and once the season gets on the way there would be alot more in there about our core business (grassroots).
Having said that I thought the "player profile" section was not related to Parra FC but just the profile of a player who had his grassroots in GDSFA and made it to the big time. There is nothing in ther indicating Hayden Foxe is a Parra FC recruit.

Cdad, We asked Malevp to provide some information with respect to players in PFC this year and their origins and his reply indicated there would be a newsletter with that type of information which appeared shortly after. As you can see further back on this topic when asked if the player profiled is playing for PFC the answer was just wait and see.
Hence the confusion. So the relationship was this topic > GDSFA newsletter... We are told the editor of that newsletter has left the fro so we shall see what type of information is relayed in the next newsletter.
I will be only reporting on the Premier Youth League scores and comments occassionally and not the Parramatta FC Senior teams.
I will makes these comments though; Hayden Foxe has not been approached by Parramatta FC but if the opportunity arises for Hayden Foxe to offer his services we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
I hoping the GDSFA Newsletter will continue as much as a lot of other people but now it will be a discussion between the board to see who will continue driving this project.
Melita Stadium was the start of round 1 of the Premier Youth League for Parramatta FC with a game against Bonnyrigg White Eagles. Bonnyrigg one of the dominating clubs in the Premier League came to Melita Stadium expecting to collect maxium points but Parramatta FC wasn't having any of that with some good football being played by Parramatta FC squads which resulted in some good results.
Parramatta FC u/13's lost 3 nil, u/14's won 1 nil, u/15 won 2 nil and the u/16's drew 2 all
Next week its a trip down to the South Coast to play the Wolves.

Parra FC v Blacktown @ Meltia
13s Parra dominated by half time it was 2-0 second half much the same blacktown tried to hold on to the ball but parra were stronger and the better side.
14s much anticipated matchup with parra scoring first from a free kick poorly defended by blacktown soon after blacktown converted a penalty to hit the sheds at 1-1. blacktown probably should on been in front by more but credit to parra as they scramble very well in defense. 2nd half blacktown lifted but again failed to convert on its chances Parra pushed forward and gained a corner which was perfectly executed and headed in by their big man, good goal to make it 2-1 parra. With 2 mins to go blacktown made some changes and blacktowns player scooted down the LHS and 1v1 with the keeper scored a brillant equaliser 2-2. There was only a min to go and blacktown in a last dig attempt had a flying headed just miss out on the target full time 2-2 draw in that both teams should improve on.
15s another much anticipated match with blacktown ex coach coaching a parra. with both teams having starting line up changes it was very much a stale mate with chances going to both sides Parra 's speedy striker set the standard a few darting runs but was equally matched by blacktowns speedy defence. It was a tough match with a blacktown down to 10 men wit 10 to go. Score finished the way the game was played with nil all draw.
16s parra finished the day on a high with the 16s scoring a 1-0 win

Promotion/relegation... The Premier League Club Championship is a tally of premiership points earned by the Under 18, Under 20 and First Grade teams, with Under 20s having a multiplier of 1, Under 20s 2 and First Grade 5. For example, a win in First Grade (ie 3 premiership points) earns 15 Club Championship points; a draw in Under 20s earns 2 Club Championship points; a win in Under 18s earns Club Championship 3 points. Relegation is based primarily on the final ranking.
Yes, all seven teams (13/14/15/16/18/20/First Grade) all go up and down together, even though the 13/14/15/16 teams don't accrue points.
Should be pointed out that in the lower divisions it doesn't quite work that way.... juniors and seniors can go up and down seperately, its only for promotion to PL that the seniors have to win the club champs for then the whole club to o up together. Likewise to get demoted from PL it depends on senior reults and nothing else
