Sydney FC-s Foxtel National Youth League and Westfield W-League teams are in line to claim two titles this Sunday in the double header at Sydney United Sports Centre, Edensor Park.
The Young Sky Blues face Brisbane Roar (kick off 2:30pm) before the W-League girls take on Canberra United (kick off 5:15pm).
The NYL squad have taken the competition by storm this season opening up a 10 point lead heading into the final four rounds, with a win this Sunday guaranteeing Sydney FC the title.
The young Sky Blues have won 12, drawn one and lost one this season, scoring 45 goals in the process including a 9-2 victory over Perth Glory.
Head Coach Steve Corica couldn-t be more pleased with how the Sky Blues season has panned out.
“I-ve been really pleased with the progress we-ve made this season,” he said.
“The team has really gelled and played well and that-s down to the hard work we-ve all put in on the training pitch.
“We need to stay focused however and ensure we finish the rest of the season unbeaten.”
The Westfield W-League squad have guaranteed themselves a home semi-final ahead of the final regular season round. A draw against Canberra on Sunday will make them Premiers.
The Sky Blue Ladies embarked on a nine match unbeaten streak to claim first place and also finished as the third best team in the Mobcast International Women-s World Championships in Japan.
Jodie Taylor is set to clinch the golden boot award after her brace against the Western Sydney Wanderers lifted her tally to 10, three goals in front of Melbourne Victory-s Lisa De Vanna.
“Sunday will be a tough game, it-s a battle for the Premiership and we need at least a point,” said Head Coach Alen Stajcic.
“I-m proud of the effort of our players especially considering our schedule and the tough draw we had as well, it-s an incredible effort from the players,” he continued.
“Hopefully we can keep it going for one more game in the regular season and then match up well against one of the top teams in the final.”
Be at Sydney United Sports Centre, Edensor Park to see both squads potentially win the league. Gates open at 2:15pm and entry is free to all Sydney FC Members. Tickets are priced at $10 for Adults, $5 for Juniors (4-12) and Concessions.
