Season overview[edit]

On the 23 September 2011, it was announced the club would start a youth academy consisting of 22 players who missed out on a place in the NYL squad. It has been speculated that the aim of this project is to address issues of community engagement.[1]

On 19 February 2012, Miron Bleiberg was fired as manager,[2][3] with Mike Mulvey taking over the following day.[4]
