With the scrapping of the preseason cup and the arrival of a new coach, this year’s off-season is shaping up to be rather different to previous years.
What we know: So far four games have been arranged:
Wed 13 May Macarthur Rams Lynwood Park (St Helens Park) 7.30pm
Wed 20 May Bankstown City Jensen Park (Sefton) 7.30pm
Wed 23 May Sydney Tigers Lambert Park 7:30pm
Wed 3 June Northern Tigers Mills Park (Asquith) 7.30pm
Tue 9 June Penrith Nepean Cook Park 7.00pm
Tue 16 June Manly United Cromer Park (Dee Why) 7.00pm
Tue 23 June Sydney United Syd Utd Sports Centre (Edensor Park) 7.30pm
Wed 1 July Sutherland Sharks Seymour Shaw Park (Miranda) 7.30pm
The FFA has mandated that we play a friendly against the NQ Fury in Sydney – No date has been set yet
If you’re even remotely interested in what our new coach has to offer, how our squad is coming together, or even just in catching up with fellow fans, these games are a must, the standard entrance fee seems to be $5, which means you’ll also be putting some much needed funds into the coffers of some very deserving clubs.
What we’ve heard:
Coach Lavicka wants a pre-season game every week till the season starts.
The club is in negotiations with with “EPL or EPL equivalent teams” for a high-profile friendly.
