2020 AU NPL Season

Postby Stuckey Tue Jul 07, 2020 6:24 am

AU's NPL season is well under way. Very exciting this season we'll be able to catch every one of their games live on the FSA youtube channel.

Tough loss for the lads this weekend gone with a 4-3 loss to Cumby. They were down to 10 men for 2/3s of the game but pushed hard to hold their lead and then when Cumby bounced back, AU were able to equalise late. Sadly Cumby grabbed a 93rd minute winner.
Lachy Brook is certainly a class above in the side. Very interested to see if he's in line for some more regular HAL game time.

AU are sitting 7th with 6pts but will have to play a few catch up games as this weekend's game will be postponed due to the squad mixing it with the HAL side who due to the amount of travel the squad has done is in isolation.

A few interesting surnames in the line up on the weekend! Does anyone know if Vidmar and Alagich are related?

Cool! I will try to watch some of their recent games.

Some interesting surnames indeed, and some names that I assume will be off to NSW as we are down a few visa players.

Para Hills Knights at the Paddocks this Saturday at 3pm. A good chance for the boys to put some distance between them and the relegation spots.

3-0 loss to Para Hills :(

The side appears to be feeling the loss of so many players to the A-League squad.

Comets up next.

Currently watching a gritty, backs to the wall performance by the Youngsters at TK Shutter.
Leading top of the table Metrostars 1-0 after an hour courtesy of a cracking goal by an African lad called Musa (69), complete with Pacifique-style back flip celebration.

Held on for a very creditable 2-2 draw, but could easily have snatched a win after Ethan Alagich scored what looked to be the winner about five minutes from the end.
Metrostars equaliser in added time was a real coach killer. Somehow squeezed in the near post from a freekick just outside the area on the right wing. I couldn't see if it was a keeper error but he was going off at the wall afterwards.
Good signs though after an ordinary season so far and a dogged determination to play out from the back, even at 2-1 up with a minute to go against a high press.
The aforementioned Ethan Alagich and Kane Vidmar in the line-up - any relation ?

That’s Musa Toure, the third Toure brother who only turned 14 this year.

A great effort from the kids, especially as so many have had to step-up with the likes of Gomulka, Brook, Niyongabire, M Toure and Smith finding themselves locked into the senior squad.

A long way to go, however a fantastic turnaround from the Para Hills game.

The Metrostars game.

Looks a bit windy out there, but for an overseas Aussie I love the sound of the birds throughout the game :D

It's a lovely little ground at the bottom of a sloping park on one side and a tree lined side street on the other. It's a shocker for drainage but they installed an artificial pitch over the summer.

And it's five minutes walk from my girlfriend's place :)

When I was looking to buy I inspected one of those houses up on the hill. The patio was setup to look over the ground. Would have been nice :)
