Football Mid North Coast Women’s Premier League (WPL) and National Premier League (NPL) youth squads will be in action this weekend.
The under 18 NPL side and both under 12 SAP Metro sides have the weekend off.
Football Mid North Coast (FMNC) will host Warners Bay FC at the Zone Field in Taree on Sunday in the WPL.
In the under 20s, Warners Bay sit 6 points clear at the top of the table.
Last time the sides met was in round seven at John Street Oval where the Panthers came away with a 3-0 victory.
FMNC currently occupy fourth position on the table and will be keen to consolidate that ahead of a trip to third placed Mereweather United in the next round.
The fifth placed under 17s FMNC squad have the chance to move into the top four if they can defeat the seventh placed Panthers.
In other fixtures, third plays fourth, so a victory will put FMNC well in the finals picture.
They won the corresponding fixture 1-0 in round seven.
In the under 14s encounter, the table topping FMNC side (now nine points clear) take on the third placed Warners Bay side who they defeated 1-0 earlier in the season.
The NPL youth squads (under 13s to under 16s) will also be at home on Sunday.
They will host North Coast Football (NCF) at Wayne Richards Park in Port Macquarie.
In the under 16s, NCF sit in seventh on the competition table just one point ahead of FMNC.
Both outfits looking for crucial points to keep them in touch with the top four.
NCF won the round one match at York Street in Coffs Harbour 3-2.
In the under 15s match, NCF will also be looking at a step towards the top four when they face a FMNC side who beat them 6-4 in the opening round of the season.
A tough task for the under 14s FMNC side will see them take on the second placed NCF team who defeated them 5-1 earlier in the season.
In the under 13s encounter, FMNC will be out to overturn the corresponding result from round one which was 3-0 to NCF.
A victory for the home side would see them move ahead of their opponent on the table and on the heels of the top four.
