Captain the only way it is going to work is when the power trippers of Granville come down to earth and step aside and let the people that understand how things work and concentrate on youth as well as structure the system well enough and please no walk-ins in youth teams than we will see success I also do not see Granville coaches helping out any of the district teams where as St George ass. Has a head coach that attends district team to help with their development
20's coach from Marconi has taken over as first grade coach and former first grade coach is now Director of Coaching. Around 5 first grade players have been sacked and the new coach has bought over 3 (I think) players with him.
captain, Any age group that can drive themselves around it may work for a few players. My logic is not entirely sound but the point I was making was that neither is yours. If we were to remove the Super League naming then we should do the same for Premier League. They are both renamed for the same reason. I think the super league re badging is a good idea as it opens the possibility of promotion and relegation for PL.
auburnfc, The problem is very few state league clubs are run by people who know how to run them and there aren't too many of those people (who are willing to get involved) around. If the Granville people step aside I doubt the replacements will be any better. The main problem is with the system rather than the people.
13's have 7 Granville Juniors and 14's have 6 Granville Juniors i don't know the make up of 15's and 16's. This bearing in mind that at 13 and up players can play for any club. There are Granville Juniors at Demons, Spartans, Olympic and Marconi just to name a few.
Before throwing mud at the association, get involved at club level. You ask about financial reports, access to minutes, demonstrate no knowledge of the current workings and situations etc - some clubs have been pushing for greater transparency, but the problem is it is only some. If more clubs pushed the board to answer to the clubs, then things could be better addressed. Instead of complaining anonymously on a forum have a talk to your clubs committee and discuss your clubs stance. At the end of the day, if the clubs are united together then the Association answers to them.
Furthermore, the point is not to have 100% of players from the Granville competition.
There are already quotas, which are currently met, in place in regards to the % of players in each age group to come from Granville. It is unrealistic to expect that 100% of players to be from Granville. Maybe the players from Granville simply aren't good enough to make a competitive squad. Maybe a player's family moves, and they are no longer from their original district.
It's pretty simple to come on complain about how it is run, without getting involved and knowing the facts. I for one agree that the previous decision to take over Parramatta FC was a mistake, and as highlighted by C-Dad is unsustainable, but the commitment has now been made.
Before making comments get involved, and don't rely on here-say when making outlandish statements.

"4 4 is correct, the fee for youth league players is $2,500.00 per player and each squad was asked to carry 16 players. This is $40k per team x 5 squads so $200k straight up. Add the canteen which remember has Youth League, Lady Hawkes and SAL playing there at different times approx $2.5k per week over 20 weeks ( i am taking into account a few weeks when there is nothing and there were also trial games when the canteen was open), plus 1 or 2 paying spectators for 1st Grade. You are looking at $250k which when budgeted corectly can fund the PYL."
What you haven't taken into account sir is, the cost of players(200k), coaches(50k), kit(60k), registration(20K), NSW Entry fee to Prem,($40k) your numbers don;t stake up, and if it was so easy, WHY DO SO MANY PREM. TEAMS IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE.
LETS SEE HOW MUCH OF OUR MONEY THE EXECUTIVE IS REALLY SPENDING
Hi all, reading this topic I’d like to lay rest to some non factual information, typically by eagleboy.
Reasons DOC , 13, 18 left was very much to do with how ParraFC looks like now, its a dictatorship, that’s all I will say on that, but PM me if you like.
Last year Youth TD run presentation night for all club coaches and provided a coaching demonstration with youth players and also took some of the youth teams to coached them incorporating Granville Local clubs like Holroyd, Pendle Hill, Parramatta City and Merylands who were the clubs that invited them. Also they invited potential players that were seen in these clubs sessions to come and train with that corresponding team in fact 4 sessions.
Plans for 2012 was to continue with that and revamp it to other clubs that welcomed the youth teams/coaches to their sessions, they also believed that an academy should be created and this is the way you pay back local clubs, as just residing in the area should not give you the right to play in top league if you are not up to it, but yes have the right to develop and breach that Gap, that was the youth TD youth plan, which was presented to all who attended at that presentation.
So unfortunately it did not work out and don’t believe at least one director, as he has his own agendas and will always leave facts out of a story.

Captain, I think you'll find that there is no movement with Kwabena leaving the club just yet.
Auburn FC, No Drogba but the new coach from Marconi U20's bought young Luke Grima back. Grima was Parra FC's young gun striker last year who cursed the place and walked out. Also young Joel Wood has been bought from Olympic.
Exparrafc, Ego's and politics in football, plenty of that going around in football. You should know that.
from FNSW website. Sydney United 58 started life after Jean-Paul De Marigny with a dour 0-0 draw against bottom-of-the-table Parramatta FC this afternoon at the Sydney United Sports Centre.
Assistant manager Mike Gibson has taken the reins at Edensor Park for the rest of the season, with the coach confirming that De Marigny had stood down from his role with the first team to concentrate on the club’s youth sides in a technical director role.
But Sydney United lacked the bounce that teams often get when there’s a change of coach.
Neither side deserved three points although the United fans may feel like they were they deserved the win after a Michael Cindric header in the 86’ minute put the ball in the back of the net, only to be disallowed by the assistant’s flag.
The rain-soaked pitch looked a worse for wear, particularly on the western end that was under the shadow of the grand stand.
Two of Parramatta’s latest signings started up front, with Luke Grima returning to his old club from Marconi and Joel Wood making the move from Olympic, although the club’s leading goal scorer Kwabena Appiah-Kubi was rested.
Grima’s run up the left flank in the 8’ minute was easily snuffed out by snuffed out by United defender Mitchell Stamatellis.
Parramatta midfielder Daniel Rezo put in a solid performance against his old club. In the 13’ minute his free-kick from 35-yards grazed the crossbar, although United keeper Vedran Janjetovic looked to have it covered.
Parramatta striker Joel Wood sent the ball across the face of goal in the 21’ minute. 4’ minutes later it was United’s Daniel Barac who looked to have broken free of Parramatta’s defensive line, but he lost control of the ball.
Rezo sent a volley into the arms of Janjetovic in the 27’ minute after United’s defence struggled under a Parramatta long ball.
Stamatellis’ afternoon ended in the 38’ minute when the United defender was subbed off with an injury, while Graziano Trimboli soldiered on for Parramatta after copping a boot to the shin moments later.
Both sides looked a bit more lively in the second-half. Ante Tomic put in a lovely ball for Mirjan Pavlovic in the 54’ but the United attacker was a little too slow and the Parramatta defence sent it down the other end.
Parramatta began to counter and had four players on two defenders but were hesitant and their execution lacking.
Sydney United’s Jared Lum missed a golden opportunity to put the home side up 1-0 after Barac put in a perfect pass for the young midfielder in the 55’ minute.
Parramatta FC winger Bryan Soane was making a promising run up the right flank but he seemed to be put off by a blast of the air horn from Sydney United fans, when he sent his cross went sideways.
Sydney United substitute Elsid Barkhousir saw his 30-yard strike go wide in the 73’ minute.
Moments later Barac and Mario Simic linked up well for United. Barac passed the ball to Simic on the left and the winger did well to squeeze a cross past two Parramatta defenders into the box, but Barac couldn’t control his momentum and he carried himself and the ball over the line.
Daniel Rezo was substituted by Daniel Gullo in the 75’ minute and he received applause from the home side’s fans, after putting in a solid effort against his old club.
Parramatta midfielder Akiyoshi Saito troubled the United defence in the 82’ minute when his attacking run and perfect pass to the left found Joel Wood, but he sent the ball straight to the goalkeeper.
Parramatta coach Lee Sterrey was sent to the stands in the 85' after the referee finally had enough of his vocal protests.
The game’s only real flashpoint came in the 86’ when a Stephen Hayes free-kick from 45-yards out found the head of Michael Cindric who sent the ball into the goal, but the assistant ruled that Cindric was offside.
The match ended with the score line reflecting the performances of both sides. Neither side created too many clear goal-scoring chances, although the quality of the match was decent, with both sides passing the ball well and resisting the urge to start smashing long balls.
Sydney United caretaker coach Mike Gibson said he was a little bit disappointed with the result:
“At the end of the day we’ll probably take a point with the way we’ve been going and move on from there.’’
Gibson confirmed that he will remain in charge of the side for the rest of the season:
“I’ve found myself in the spot, we’re going to keep working and build on what JP started and take things from there.
“We’re not going to change things too much. We’ve got a pretty good squad we’re just down on a bit of confidence.
``We’ve still got a good chance of making the finals.’’
Gibson praised Daniel Barac after the game, tipping the striker for a big future.
Parramatta coach Lee Sterrey said his side did well to hold on for the draw but thought they should have done more with their chances:
“Daniel Rezo should have done a bit better with some of his chances, against his old club it would have been good for him.
“We’ve brought in a couple of new faces which will put on a bit of pressure for the rest of the squad and we’ve got to push hard in this second half of the season.’’
Sterrey said his two new signings did well but that there’s plenty of room for improvement:
“I thought Grima was a little bit flat, he hasn’t played for a few weeks and has struggled for game time but overall I thought he did OK.
“Joel Wood was great considering it was his first hit-out.
“We changed the system a bit tonight, even though we were at Edensor Park, but overall I thought we did well and if anyone deserved it I think it was us.’’
Sunday 17th June,
