League rivalry

THE Penrith Junior League competitions are just days away, and Blacktown Workers and St Marys have their sights set high in 2014.

St Marys are the glamour club of the Penrith Junior League, but Workers are holding their own in the battle, says club president Keith Cochran.

He said the club has put a huge emphasis on its two most senior squads.

"We're going well and we've recruited some good players in our Ron Massy Cup and True Blue Shield teams," Cochran said.

He highlighted two of the club's junior sides, expected to be premiership contenders against St Marys in first division.

"I think we're going to be very strong from the under-12s up, particularly our under-15s and 16s.

They will be a formidable force against any team this season," Cochran said.

"We've got a few players in the Harold Matthews squads and that shows how strong our club is getting."

St Marys president Barry Hupton said the club would chase an unbelievable 20 or more premierships across all grades.

"We won 13 competitions last year but I really think we can go close to winning 20 premierships this year," he said.
