Providing insights from the touchline, North Coast under 14s coach Adam Wood spoke about the team’s recent form and the challenging nature of the match.

“We’ve been playing well the last month and we wanted to continue that upward trend,” Wood said.

“Newcastle Olympic are a very strong club and we knew it would be a tight affair.

“I was lucky enough to have Kenny Munyaneza and Revan Delaf at my disposal who both made immediate impacts coming off the bench at halftime.”

Coach Wood’s half time teamtalk encouraged his players to back themselves and attack forwards.

“I’ve been requesting my players to be braver and play forward at opportunities instead of being safe.

“We’ve been doing that and creating a lot of scoring opportunities.

“We are starting to gel as a team and getting the results we deserve,” Wood said.
