Sixteen players from Northern NSW have been selected to participate in the Tokyo Under 14 International Youth Football Tournament commencing Sunday 1st May.

Previous teams representing NSW have consisted of players from Northern NSW Football and Football NSW, however this year the team will consist of all players from the Emerging Jets program, as Football NSW no longer has a pathway program for Hyundai A-League clubs.

The squad to represent NSW consists of 14 players from the Emerging Jets 14 year’s program and two (2) players who have come up from the Emerging Jets 13 year’s program.

The side flys out for Japan on Thursday 28th April and will arrive back in Australia on Friday 6th May 2016.

The selected team consists of:

  1. Lachlan Bayliss (Terrigal)
  2. Matthew Burton (Thornton)

The side will be attending the tournament at the invitation of the Tokyo Government, who extended the invite to the NSW State Government. The team will be coached by the 2015/16 Westfield W-League head ‘Coach of the Year’, Craig Deans.
