White Eagles/Sydney United/Stallions are set for clash for Pre-Season Cup

BONNYRIGG White Eagles, Sydney United 58 FC and Marconi Stallions will play in the Football NSW Pre-Season Cup starting on February 2.

The three National Premier Leagues NSW Men's 1 clubs will use the tournament to prepare for season's kick-off on Saturday, March 15.

Football NSW has also organised friendly matches for the under-16s, 18s and under-20s grades.

The cup has been split into two pools with the first lot of matches taking place on Sunday, February 2, and the grand final to be played on the weekend of March 8-9.

Football NSW media manager Mark Stavroulakis said the cup was a round-robin format with the winning teams from both pools facing each other in the grand final and that it should be a good competition.

Sydney Olympic are the defending pre-season cup champions.

The Eagles United and the Stallions made the finals last season. Coach Brian Brown steered the Eagles to a grand final win, while United, with coach Mark Rudan, won the premiership trophy.

The Stallions have a new coach this season. Darren Iocca, who has been an assistant coach at the club for the past three years now takes the reins.

The two pools are: Bonnyrigg White Eagles, Blacktown Spartans, Marconi Stallions, South Coast Wolves, Sydney Olympic and Sydney United 58 FC.

In the other pool are APIA Leichhardt Tigers, Blacktown City FC, Manly United, Rockdale City Suns, Sutherland Sharks and St George FC.
