June 26th, 2019

Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) has announced the thirty-two (32) players who have been selected to represent the state in Australia’s Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls in 14 and 15 Years.

Over 330 of Australia’s best young female footballers will converge on Coffs Harbour from Monday

15 July until Friday 19 July at the C.ex International Stadium in Coffs Harbour.

The Far North Coast region will be well represented with Bridie Black (Federal), Jade Parkin (Wollongbar) and Mia Veil (Skennars Head) taking to the field in the Northern NSW 14s and 15s side.  Elizabeth Warne from Far North Coast (Murwillumbah) was selected but unable to participate due to a long-term injury.

The Championships, secured by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, will host twenty one (21) teams from around Australia who will represent their State and compete for the title.

This year represents the final year of the Championships being held in Coffs Harbour under the existing bid agreement.

The 2018-19 Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) bid was supported by long-time partner Coffs Harbour City Council and Sports Unit, along with the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW all of which recognised the significance of the tournament as a catalyst for tourism and economic benefit to the Coffs Harbour region and the state of NSW.

NNSWF Head of Football Development, Peter Haynes said NNSWF has had the pleasure hosting the tournament in Coffs Harbour for fourteen (14) years and highlighted the talented pathways the Championships continue to create for players.

“Northern NSW Football along with the support of Coffs City Council and Destination NSW, have had the pleasure hosting the National Youth Championships for Girls and Boys since 2006,” Haynes said.

“This year marks as an important year as Northern NSW Football will be represented by players from all across the region.”

“There will be a number of technical directors and Football Federation Australia representatives at the tournament identifying players for future national squads.

“These opportunities highlight how invaluable the Championships are in providing young female players with the chance for identification for future Australian team camps and the potential to one day represent our country at the highest level.

“NNSWF has a history of being strongly represented in Junior and Youth Matildas teams and we hope that this will continue with the players that we have selected to participate in the National Championships for Girls in July this year,” Haynes concluded.

The 2019 Westfield National Youth Championships for Girls are proudly supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
