After a very positive set of results in the female space for the Flame last weekend, the girls may be denied the opportunity to build on that with games this week at high risk of being washed out. The Youth and Women’s sides are currently scheduled to play South East Phoenix at Ison Park, South Nowra. A decision on these games is expected to be made on Friday.

The Youth Boys were left ruing a day of what-ifs. We only managed three draws against Bankstown where missed opportunities and sloppy defensive errors contributed to a frustrating day against Bankstown United.

After a week of interrupted training through wet weather, the boys will want to get back on track this weekend against Bonnyrigg White Eagles at the Furnace in what will be first time the sides have met in the Youth Boys space.

The 13 Boys have started the season well and have accumulated seven from a possible nine points and sit in third whilst the 14 Boys will this week fancy their chances. The 15 Boys are looking to arrest a two-game slide whilst the 16 Boys are sitting in second spot after two wins and a draw from their opening three matches. The 18 Boys have been scoring freely however they will need to address their defence as they look to get their first points of the campaign.

Youth Boys: Starting from 8:30 am


On Saturday, the Senior Men’s sides begin their competitive campaign in the FNSW Men’s League Three competition against Western Rage at the Furnace. 

It has been a long preparation period for the Flame sides beginning late last year.

First-Grade coach Darren Jones is optimistic about his team’s chances of finishing in a finals place for the first time since 2019.

One of Flame’s three victories last season came against Western Rage in a 1-0 win at the Furnace thanks to a Matt Mazevski goal. 

It is a new look Rage this year and they too are optimistic about their season prospects. Flame have historically posted blowout scores in most of their season openers with two wins and three losses. They will be looking to even that ledger this year.

Flame will be without Jack Balmforth and Logan Mathie for this match due to carryover suspensions from last season and with a couple of other players still facing late fitness tests, Coach Jones may leave it to the last minute to settle on his starting lineup.

The Under-20s under new Coach Stan Pappas have looked promising in preseason. They have strung together a few outstanding results and will be no doubt looking to start the season on a positive note.

For the Youth Men, Lucas Ayala has been burning it up and he has already seen First team time in preseason. Hasan Ayoub has been a constant threat up top whilst Damon Hurst has kept things tight at the back.
