Hows the appeal going Auburn, what was the total wash out with you and your club with the big fine, the line where it stated you need to show why you should be able to register teams over the age of 18 etc etc

yes there is an appeal in place hope it all goes well. some people are trying to drive us out of the competition. Any club will apeal a 10000 fine and 5000 good faith fee.
we have applied for state league if all goes well then yes we wont be back if not we will be back.
assume we are not back or not allowed to come back , i dont think lidcombe will be there as the coach is resigning , castlhill rsl may not be either. i would not think that many clubs such as rydalmere or us will play in a 4 or 5 team premier league.
state league wont be easy to get in due to number of teams allowed in state league so i think we will be back depending on how many teams are in the premier league.
Norwest have toyed with stepping up to prems for many years, but here are the facts.
Norwest as a team was put together 7 years ago from a bunch of blokes that played together at St John's, State league and GDSFA Premier league many many years ago.
It has been the same core 15 or so players for all these years with a few players coming and going each year to have a squad of 17 most years. Of these core 15 players 9 are 39-40 years old or older (45yo in 1 case).
Whilst we are proud to have made 6 out of 7 GF's in Senior 1's or 2 's in these years many of these we made from 3rd or 4th spot so we have never really dominated the competitions, but got the job done at the back end of seasons when it counted.
We are the best of mates, but unfortunately this may be our last season together, unless anyone is keen on having a Prems comp where reserve grade is over 35's and First grade is open age, then we can step up and find the necessary players to fill 2 teams and still stay together. Maybe CHU, Kellyville and Greys 35's will join with another younger side and have a prems squad with some of there classy older players playing in the Firsts on and off - just a thought.
