Belconnen United 2014 Junior Premier League Trials - Provisional team selection
Main - Main Category

The Belconnen Joint Management Committee (JMC) comprising members of all four Belconnen Clubs met this week to consider, discuss and ratify the team selections for the BUFC open junior PL teams and Development Squads (BUDS).


It was agreed that the level of competition for places this year has been outstanding and the decision making process has been particularly difficult. Many good players have unfortunately missed out and are encouraged to further develop their skills at Belnorth, Belsouth and Belwest. It was further agreed that players be listed now in their provisional teams in order that as much time as possible accrued to players in making their decisions for 2014.

We believe that Belconnen United (BUFC) provides the best NPL club pathway for junior players in the ACT. BUFC are the current NPL and WPL CF Club Champions - our PL teams finished top four in every age group competition entered. Our open development squads also all made the top four.

We are proud to offer:

. As 2014 NPL Head Coach –

Dean Ugrinic, CF NPL 2013 Coach of the Year;

. As 2014 WPL Head Coach –

Antoni Jagarinec, CF WPL 2013 Coach of the year; and

. Experienced, successful and accedited coaches in our ongoing BUFC development pathway.


Three junior open BUFC PL teams and three BUFC Development Squads (BUDS) were picked for 2014, and, out of the 160 players invited to trial, about 90 were selected:

. Three players from interstate clubs were selected;

. All eligible players were assessed ten or more times by over a dozen coaches over a six week period - bias was eliminated as far as possible.

. All players were given the opportunity to be assessed on the four core FFA criteria and in games.

The representatives from BUFC and the three affiliated clubs - Belnorth, Belsouth and Belwest - carefully scrutinised and unanimously approved the players selected.


Please contact our Technical Director Ulisses Da Silva if you wish to discuss your selection for BUFC.


Registration details and costings are expected to be made available later in January 2014.
