PS4 NPL NNSW Select to take on Jets

For the first time in three years, Northern NSW Football has selected a representative squad from the PlayStation ® 4 NPL competition to play a friendly against the Newcastle Jets.

The Northern NSW Football PlayStation 4 NPL 2015 Coach of the Year, Damian Zane from Edgeworth Eagles, has been appointed as the head coach of the select team and will be assisted by Shane Pryce, from Charlestown City Blues for the match on Wednesday 20 July at Magic Park.

Zane, whom has experience of leading a squad to play against an A-League side, taking Edgeworth into the Round of 16 against Melbourne City in last year’s Westfield FFA Cup, is looking forward to the opportunity.

“I have selected a predominately young and talented squad from the competition that will give us a lot of mobility against the Jets,” Zane said of his Select Team.

“Players like Daniel McBreen and Josh Evans will bring the team experience in key positions on the park.”

“I have selected a larger squad given there is another round of NPL to be played prior to this match and I believe working with this group as a whole will give us the depth to cover injuries and withdrawals, should they occur prior to the match.”

Newcastle Jets Coach, Scott Miller believes the match would be a great opportunity not only for his team to prepare for their upcoming Westfield FFA Cup match but to develop even stronger ties with Northern NSW local football clubs and players.

“This is an important game for the community and a great chance for the club to continue to enhance its links with Northern New South Wales Football and local National Premier Leagues clubs,” Miller said. 

“The fixture against the Northern NSW select side on July 20 will be our first game of the pre-season and will provide us with the chance to improve our football fitness and begin to identify flexibility in systems of play within our squad ahead of our Westfield FFA Cup Round of 32 Match against Melbourne Victory in early August,” Miller concluded.

The game will kick off at 7:00pm on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 at Magic Park Broadmeadow.
