Part four of the NSW Premier League Preview. This time its the Under 16 Girls – Updated to include changes mentioned by fulcrum
Led by the experienced Erkin Osman, last seasons Grand final winning team returns and again in their ranks will be the supremely talented current Player of the Year Doris Osman.
Whilst the team will rely on Osman to make the big plays she will be surrounded by a supporting cast just as good as last seasons which won the title.
Cayla White returns and will be joined by Sheridan Kuiper and Madison Strutt from Quake while Alisha Wawan also joins from the Northern Tigers.
The Inner West Allstars will be one of the teams challenging the Vipers this season.
The Allstars will once again be under the watchful eyes of Zoran and Sharyn Pavlicevic.
Pavlicevic led the Allstars last season winning the Grand slam- taking the Preseason Cup, Minor Premiership, Grand final and State Championships and will have the majority of that team returning.
Charlene Borg, Jess Dominello and Kristy Pavlicevic will once again be donning the Gold and Blue whilst Jessica Martinez, Chloe Logarzo and Breanna Sampson have all come in.
One player that won’t be returning to Homebush is young starlet Sarah Yatim.
Yatim, last seasons Golden boot has made the trek to Bankstown to wear the green and black of Enfield along with another former Allstar Carla Canini.
The Rovers have also signed Lorissa Habib from Sydney Benfica.
Sydney City will be another side hoping to make the top 4 after going so close last season with a very young team.
Led by the mercurial Heidi Makrillos the Eagles have picked up another talented former Raider in Vanisha Kumur whilst the ever present Eagle duo of Carla Caligiuri and Laura Morabito should help see the Eagles taste semi final futsal.
Campbelltown Quake shouldn’t be written off.
Whilst Quake will field a young side this season with an eye on the future Sharon Walsh and Kate Hawker are back as are the Chapman twins.
The Dural Warriors will be the dark horse of the competition.
Sam Fornito will lead his young Warriors into battle and will have Sarah Ragomo leading from the front line.
Younger sister of Futsal superstar Elliot, Sarah has the same blinding pace and lightning acceleration and is looking to take the competition by storm just like her brother did in his first season playing in NSW.
Fornito will also have the returning Goal Keeper of the year Anna-Marie Acevedo in his line up.
Write of the Warriors at your peril.
Sydney Benfica also has a new coach as the merry go round in the coaching ranks continue.
Former Warrior Alex Rossi has taken charge and likes the look of his team.
