Football NSW Metro and Country squads confirmed for 2023 Girls National Youth Championships


Football NSW has confirmed the players set to represent the Metro and Country teams in the Girls National Youth Championships, to be held in Wollongong in October.

Commencing on Monday 9th of October and concluding on Friday 13th, matches will be played at John Crehan Park and the iconic WIN Stadium.

Football NSW will be entering four teams in the tournament, with Metro and Country teams selected for the Under 14 and Under 16 age groups.

“Our talent identification processes have improved with the introduction of Girls TSP over the past 12 months,” said Nadine Shiels, Football NSW Player Development Manager – Girls.

“This meant that we were able to cast the net wider to select and identify players for our girls state teams.

“We have an incredible amount of talented players, and selecting the final squads was no easy task.

“It is encouraging and rewarding for the future of football in NSW to have a larger pool of talented players coming through.

“We are excited to see the selected teams in action in Wollongong in October and we would love to see as many people down there supporting the girls on their journey.

“We are confident the players will take this opportunity with both hands and demonstrate what they are capable of.”
