Coaches and Managers announced for this years NSW Premier League
Our youngest magicians in our Pre-Academies will be led by Darren Craus and Ferdinand Maniti. Both coaches have futsal experience and will be expected to groom our youngest magicians for future seasons.
Our Academy team will be led by experienced Futsal coach Matteo Maiorana. Having led the u/14s to the double last season, Matteo has the important task of teaching the next crop of representative Magicians what is expected come Premier League next season.
To provide continuity within the club and the development squad Matteo will also have the u/12 Boys side this coming year.
The club will also boast one of the most experienced womens coaches in the league with Joe Baldaccitaking the helm of the u/12 Girls side. Fresh from taking the u/14 Girls to the Premiership last year Baldacci will look to continue his good run of form within the Premier League with the clubs youngest female team.
The u/14 Boys will have a coaching contingent new to the club. Aldo Liemich and former club memberDavid Kealy take the reigns of an age group which last year beat all competitors. Liemich brings a wealth of knowledge to the team and it is a side he is very familair with, having coached many players last season which successfully won the state titles last year.
The u/14 Girls have a familiar look about them with last seasons coaching staff in Steve Koutzoumis and assistant Zelko Galic looking to replicate last seasons Premiership success.
The 16 Boys will also have a familiar look about them with coaching staff swapping positions. The combination of the successful NSW Thunder campaign in Canberra remain with last seasons u/14s, assistant coach Caleb Gibson will take the majority of the double winning squad up to the 16 boys with last seasons 14s coach Matteo Maiorana moving down the pecking order to assistant.
The 16 Girls after their brilliant run to finish the season will again be led by the man who instigated the great turn around Roberto Maiorana. With a full season in charge the newly capped futsalroo will look to better last seasons 3rd place finish.
The Youth Men will see a familiar face return to clubs coaching ranks with Damian Baker the man in charge. Baker has a resume littered with successes in the Youth age group and will be looked upon to lead the team to success.
Our Open Womens side will see the introduction of experienced coach Paulo Dutra. Last season Dutra had the reigns of Enfield Rovers who he had sitting on top of the table until both parties parted ways. The club is hoping that Dutra can replicate what he achieved with the Rovers and lead a young and enthusiastic squad into the top positions.
And finally the Open Mens team will once again be led by Carmine Bortone. Carmine has won a vast number of titles in the younger ranks and with a strong squad will look to add another trophy to his already full trophy cabinet.
Look out next week for a round up on each of the clubs 12 teams.
