NPL 1

Blacktown City hold onto first place for another week gaining a total of 6 points. Sydney United has managed to close the gap to only 6 points whilst the big movers are APIA Leichardt picking up a huge 18 points to chase down Blacktown.

Rockdale has held onto 4th position only just after only picking up 3 points from their U18s. Sydney Olympic has also managed to jump past Manly United.

At the bottom end Bonnyrigg managed to leapfrog Parramatta and out of the relegation position picking up 10 points from their youngsters whilst Parramatta picked up 0 points on the weekend. This gives Bonnyrigg a 2 point advantage heading into the second half of the season.

Wollongong Wolves will also have to watch their tails, after conceding a stoppage time goal to Sydney FC Youth in 1st grade, giving them an extra 9 points, leaving the Wolves safe from the relegation spot by 29 points.

NPL 2

Retaining first place with a slightly smaller margin this week is Marconi Stallions. Picking up only a handful of points the Wanderers are right back on the chase trailing 163 points to the Stallions 176. Still in the mix for promotion however are Central Coast back on 152 after a solid round and Northern Tigers who picked up 15 points and are sitting in 4th place.

Mid table we can still see some congestion as Brumbies are sitting 5th with 132 points and Macarthur are 12th with 95 points, so not a great deal of separation.

Finally down the bottom Bankstown City are still making that relegation position there own, picking up 0 points from the weekend to stay on 43, as was the same with Berries who finished on 0 points staying with 69 championship points.

NPL 3

There hasn’t been a lot of change at either end of the table this week as Rydalemere have broken away to outright leaders on 193 points followed by Fraser Park sitting on 190. However with the midweek cup game away for Fraser Park, this may have some impact on them in the coming round.

Following the top 2 is Sydney Uni SFC with 151 points with a solid 12 point pick up then slightly further back is St George City on 136 points.

Down the bottom however the battle for relegation is still well and truly on. Balmain Tigers (after a win from their 1st grade team) have managed to pick up 19 points over the weekend to lift them to 61 points, leading cellar dwellers Granville in last on 57 points after only earning 8 this week.

However we can’t count out teams such as Inter Lions, Western NSW Mariners and Stanmore Hawks from the relegation battle, sitting on 76, 74 and 71 points respectively, despite the teams making some modest gains.
