Northern NSW Football announces conclusion of 2021 Northern Inland competitions

September 9th, 2021

Northern NSW Football has announced the end of its 2021 Northern Inland competitions.

While the NSW government announced on Thursday that parts of the Northern Inland are to come out of lockdown, the continued restrictions on community sport and no guaranteed safe return to football mean NNSWF were left with no choice but to call full-time on all 2021 Northern Inland competitions.

This includes Premier Division, Namoi League, Tamworth youth, senior and MiniRoos as well as all club run MiniRoos competitions.

Minor Premiers in all divisions have been awarded and will be acknowledged over the coming weeks. Medals and trophies will be distributed when it is safe and permissible to do so under the Public Health Order.

As the season has concluded there will be no finals series for any competitions.

“This news is not the end to the season we wanted. We hoped we could sneak in a finals series and see teams become champions on the pitch,” Northern Inland Regional Coordinator Toby McVey said.

Northern NSW Football CEO David Eland paid tribute to the football community following a difficult year but remained optimistic for a successful 2022 season.

“I want to thank the entire Northern Inland football community including players, coaches, volunteers and match officials for their contribution to the season as well as their understanding and resilience during this difficult time,” Eland said.

“It is a disappointing way to end any season, but I can assure the football community we will be back bigger and better than ever in 2022. So until then stay safe and we’ll see you back on the pitch soon.”
