Southern Telegraph - - Sport - Brian Kennedy

Rock­ing­ham City Football Club has been ac­cepted to join the Ju­nior Na­tional Premier Leagues com­pe­ti­tion.

The pro­vi­sional ar­range­ment has been set up to pro­vide RCFC with the prospect of be­ing able to sup­port the Ju­nior NPL con­cept in WA and pro­mote soc­cer to the elite level.

The RCFC had sub­mit­ted a com- pre­hen­sive Ju­nior NPL ap­pli­ca­tion to Football West and would en­sure all coaches and com­mit­tee fol­lowed the FFA na­tional cur­ricu­lum and con­tin­ued to fo­cus on youth de­vel­op­ment for many sea­sons to come.

Football West chief ex­ec­u­tive Peter Hugg com­mented on the level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism and pa­tience shown in de­vel­op­ing the RCFC’s ap­pli­ca­tion and the ex­tent to which the club had em­braced the Ju­nior NPL set-up.

Mr Hugg said the RCFC had re­alised the need for an elite path­way and NPL sta­tus in the re­gion and hoped to be­come a leader in the pro­gram as a re­sult of the hard­work­ing coaches, play­ers and staff.
