Football NSW has released the PlayStation 4 NPL NSW 2017 draw for the new season kicking off on Saturday March 11 across 22 rounds with 12 clubs ready to battle it out for supremacy.
NSW is heavily renowned for having the most competitive competition across all National Premier Leagues in Australia as a number of mouth-watering first round fixtures have been announced in what will be a memorable 2017 season.
New faces will grace new clubs in season 2017 while experienced campaigners will once again steer various ships across the twelve clubs in their push for success.
Official signings are currently taking place with Football NSW to release the official new recruits early next year.
Three matches have been set for Saturday evening as the new boys on the block Sydney FC, freshly promoted from the PS4 NPL NSW Men’s 2 competition, tackle the always tricky Rockdale City Suns at Lambert Park. Robbie Stanton’s young squad will be one to watch out for but they will be tested by the Suns with Player Manager Paul Reid pulling the strings against his former club.
The Suns will unearth a couple of its new signings with the likes of Harris Gaitatzis and Jordan Figon joining an already impressive group of players that includes Blake Ricciuto, Alex Canak, Trent McClenahan and Daniel Petkovski to name a few.
At the Bonnyrigg Sports Club, the White Eagles face a new look Sydney Olympic side led by its new Portuguese manager Jamie Monroy Zamith.
The White Eagles will once again be coached by the experienced Brian Brown and will hope that a couple of new faces in defenders Zac Mackenzie from the Wollongong Wolves and Milan Susak, who returns after spending some time in Asia, will help strengthen the squad’s backline. The Blues will look towards giving a few young former Under 20s players a crack at the first team as the core of the squad has been signed on from the 2016 season.
The club has hinted in securing at least three players before finalising its squad for the new year but the likes of Costa Andricopoulos, Max Burgess, Peter Makrillos and Yianni Spyrakis look to have agreed to terms with the Blues.
