Academy Preview: Women’s and Girl’s (April 2nd)

The Central Coast Mariners women’s and girl’s academies are in for a big weekend, playing at home for the first time this season. 

Pluim Park will be filled with action from 8:30am on Sunday, with the first-grade game finishing the day when it gets underway at 3pm. 

Fresh off a perfect weekend, with all five sides coming away with the three points last Sunday, the teams are looking to repeat that as they face Inter Lions FC. 

First grade vs Inter Lions FC

Off the back of their third consecutive win to begin the season last weekend, the Central Coast Mariners women’s first grade side are looking to continue the momentum as they come up against Inter Lions. 

A pleasing performance against Mt Druitt, which included goals in both halves, saw the team run out 2-0 winners, remaining the only perfect side in 2023. 

Playing at Pluim Park for the first time this year, the team are ready to put on an exciting performance in front of our home fans. 

In their way stands Inter Lions, who currently sit in sixth place with one win to date.

Dan Barrett’s side are looking to continue the form that they have built so far, before another two weekends of away matches. The game will get underway at 3pm on Pluim Park field three.

Under 20’s vs Inter Lions 

The Mariners women’s under 20’s side got their first win in style last weekend, comfortably defeating Mt Druitt 4-0 away from home. 

Set to play at Pluim Park for the first time in 2023, the team are looking to make it two in a row when they face Inter Lions at 1:05pm.  

Goals to Chloe Cattley, Natalie Davis, Rachel Glendenning and Ava Carlson were enough to secure the three points, with another exciting attacking display expected on Sunday. 

Our side currently sit in ninth on three points, however they do have a game in hand on almost all of the competition. 

Our opponents are placed in fourth after three matches, winning twice while losing last weekend to Camden. 

Youth Girl’s vs Inter Lions

After three weekends of travelling, the Mariners three youth girl’s sides are finally set to grace the fields of Pluim Park this Sunday for the first time in 2023. 

The day will get underway when the under 14’s kick off at 8:20am, with the team currently sitting in 10th after their win last weekend.

Inter Lions sit just two places higher with an extra point, as both teams aim to maintain touching distance with the top few sides. 

The under 15’s will be looking to continue their perfect start to the season, winning three games in a row to begin 2023.

In their way of a fourth straight win sit Inter Lions, who are currently in 10th with three points. Kick off for that game begins at 9:55am.

The youth girls will have their day rounded out at 11:25am, when the under 16’s take the field.

Also undefeated to start the season, with one game called off due to the heat, the side are looking to continue their good form as they play at home for the first time. 

Their opponents currently sit in last without a point, as the Mariners aim to continue our bright start.
