Football Far North Coast has launched its tenth year of the Tursa Employment & Training Summer Youth League competition, with the 2017 season to commence this Friday evening, 13th October.

The outstanding success of the Female Summer Youth League over the past two seasons has again attracted ten teams for this year. Defending champions Lismore Thistles will look to add to their trophy cabinet that currently holds the Women’s Premier Division pointscore and Grand Final trophies. With clubs including Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley and Byron Bay displaying great form in the Women’s Division 2 this year and both squads having many talented young players, supporters can anticipate a number of teams to perform well.

The Male Summer Youth League has historically been very strong and with defending champions Lismore Richmond Rovers not participating this year, the competition is very open. The Summer Youth League also provides an environment to support more development of match officials. Football activity is significant in this region with almost 7000 players, a post-season competition like the Summer Youth League provides a good opportunity to focus closely on how to better deliver football at a high level.

Football Far North Coast acknowledges the loyal support of Tursa Employment & Training. The alignment between Tursa and Football Far North Coast demonstrates the mutual values that underpin a positive engagement with the community.
