NSW NPL Seniors Club Championship Update

Another week has passed, so let’s take a look at what has changed in the Club Championship standings, particularly in NPL 3 where 5 teams will be relegated.

NPL 1

Not a lot to say on NPL 1 this week really, Bonnyrigg is still coming last, although they have cut the gap to 7 points, although Manly has a game in hand.

Blacktown City has broken away to the top, however APIA is hot on their heels, 10 points behind with 2 games in hand.

NPL 2

Mount Druitt Town still sits on top of the table, although their lead has been cut to only 9 points with Central Coast Mariners right behind them ready to pounce.

At this rate, Wanderers fans may have to wait another year before they are in the same tier as Sydney FC, sitting 26 points behind the leaders. It’s still early days, however they won’t want to afford more ground to their opponents.

Canterbury Bankstown picked up 4 points this week, however still remain anchored on the bottom. Parramatta made no ground at all over the 3 grades whilst Macarthur Rams got maximum points to launch themselves out of relegation.

Spirit FC only picked up 2 points in the 20s, meaning they now sit 1 point from safety. Blacktown Spartans are just holding on outside of the relegation zone, however if the rumours are true with the players on strike, how much longer will they hold out?

 

NPL 3

We have a new leader this week in Hawkesbury City, who gained maximum points to jump Bankstown City, who managed to pick up wins in the 18s and 20s to earn 9 points.  St George City sit not too far off, after picking up 15 points.

A look down the bottom sees Western NSW still in last despite getting a win in the 18s, Fraser Park in 13th, obtaining no points over the weekend and Inter Lions in 12th despite gaining 18 points.

Unfortunately for them though, Granville Rage picked up 12 points and Stanmore Hawks scored a point to stay ahead, yet still in the relegation area.

Camden Tigers keep themselves safe, 10 points above 10th.

 

State League

And no, everyone’s favourite (at least ours) league; the State League AKA NPL 4.

USNW continue their domination at the top, earning the full 21 points to stay ahead of CCU who also gained maximum points, and Bankstown United who picked up 18.

Hurstville FC have pulled themselves off the bottom after winning maximum championship points, whilst Gazy Auburn are still trying to prove they can mix it with the rest, earning points across 20s and 1st grade to leave Balmain Tigers in last place.

 

Stay tuned for next weeks edition, as well as upcoming coverage of the Youth competition club championship.
