2018 Coaching Positions

. Youth Information

Preparations for season 2018 are now starting to ramp up and we are taking applications for Head Coaches for our academy teams from aged Under 9 – Under 16 – This includes the Under 9 SAP which will be run as part of the NPL Licensing.

We envisage holding trials in the above mentioned age groups in early October to identify talented players and get them into an environment where we are producing quality players to our seniors NPL Youth teams and potential Emerging Jets selections from Under 12’s.

We are proposing to have one ‘academy’ team per above age group which will train a mandatory three nights a week & look to play games against opposition from outside our area (via trial games and tournaments), therefore exposing our players to different styles of football and giving the players who were identified as exceptionally talented the chance to be able to progress their football to the next level – This will require exceptional commitment & dedication for this to work and for your child to excel in football.

Technical Director, Neil Orr will oversee the program and ensure that quality coaching is being provided to each team, giving our players their best chance to succeed.

If you are interested in coaching young footballers aged 9 – 16 with a view of potentially coaching NPL in the coming years, we encourage all coaches to get in contact with us via the below email address or via our website (www.magicyouthfc.com.au/contact-us/) to be supplied with an application form.

These are due back by Tuesday 1st August 2017

If there are any questions or concerns regarding this, please get in touch with the club via the above link

Under 15 A Match Review vs Lambton Jaffas

. Youth Information

Our Under 15 A’s played a Lambton team desperate for a win after a slow start to the season

Having lost two players to injury, Harrison with a double broken wrist in the previous game and Sam Marshall with a sprained toe, the team seemed to lift up when Harry arrived to support us complete with cast. The game heralded the return for Seb who had been out for 6 weeks with a twisted knee.

The game started fast with Lambton pushing forward with speed and a serious determination. Lambton hit the first shot but Magic managed to scramble it clear with Beau hooking up with Sam Fuller to release the ball down the right side to Tyler who was immediately closed out by Lambton’s fast and strong sweeper.

Lambton continued to show determination winning all loose balls and when they shot from the right a struggle in the goal mouth saw the ball scrambled into our own goal and we went down 1-0.

Any attempts to attack were immediately cut down by Lambton who continued to be solid at the back. Seb’[s return was after 15 minutes and he looked strong and positive, no sign of any knee problems. Tom came on to try and give us some pace up front but Lambton’s sweeper was more than a match and seemed to be everywhere.

Lambton pushed forward again and with no pressure on the ball Lambton hit a great strike which Eli had no chance of stopping to go 2-0 up as we entered half time.

Second half was a much more level game and whilst most of the play was in the Lambton half, Magic could not get that final ball through with Lambton’s determination to throw bodies at the ball to block anything. Highlights were Dusty and Lachlan linking up and pushing down the left and Beau working very hard to push Alec up the right, in the end, Lachlan hit wide and Alec was pushed out by the fast defence. Tyler managed to get our first strike on target which was well handled by their keeper.

Our defence also found its feet with Riley, Seb and Alki clearing balls more efficiently. As always, Jorjas engine was running on high octane and she was covering the midfield nicely with James and Sam Fuller clearing to the wings.

After numerous attempts on goal a handball was spotted by the referee gave Magic a penalty, unfortunately as with our first penalty in the first game we were unable to take our chance with the keeper saving the shot well.

The deadlock was broken from the third corner we had forced in the second half with a returning Seb volleying an impossible ball screaming into the goal, he rushed back to the centre circle with the ball to keep the momentum up.

A solid effort from a luckless 15 A’s at the moment with the team yet to find the Magic!

Our 15 A’s play tonight against undefeated leaders Nelson Bay at Myer Park!
