After last weekend’s journeys to Bathurst for the Boys and Manly for the Women, the Central Coast Mariners Academy teams will be glad to be back at their home ground for Round 10 of the 2012 season.
On Saturday, the Academy’s Boys Super Youth League teams take on Granville Rage at Pluim Park. After a draw last week from the commute to Bathurst, the Grade 13 Boys will hope that home ground advantage will see them back to their winning ways and moving further ahead on the ladder when they meet eighth placed Granville.
The Grade 14 Boys sees the second placed Academy team playing fourth placed Granville.
With eight wins and one draw and no losses under their belt for Season 2012, the Grade 16 Boys will be aiming to keep their unbeaten record in tact.
Although the Grade 18 Boys were unable to secure a win at Bathurst last weekend against top of the table Western Mariners, their return to their home ground will see them eager to secure the points to remain in touch with the ladder leaders.
On Sunday, the North West Sydney Koalas Womens Premier League teams travel to Pluim Park to play the Mariners Academy teams.
The day kicks off with the Grade 12 Girls at 9am.
In the Grade 14 Girls, the local team will be hoping for another home win as only three points separate them from NWS Koalas.
It is only a two point difference in the Reserve Grade teams where the Coast Girls will be out to prove that it is their week to secure the points.
The final game of the day, First Grade Women, kicks off at 3pm.
The only travelling Academy teams this week are the Grade 9 and 10 Boys who are off to Cromer Park to play Manly on Saturday.
The Grade 11 and 12 Boys have a bye this week.
