The inaugural A-League National Youth League (NYL) kicked off last week, coinciding with Round 6 of the senior season.
In the first NYL match on Friday evening, Melbourne Victory took on Queensland Roar at Green Gully Reserve but went down 2-0 with goals to Josh McVey and Mitch Nichols.
Victory regular Steve Pantelidis played in the match in a bid to force himself back into favour with the selectors.
The Mariners had some regular first team players on the park including back-up goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne and Greg Owens who managed just over fifteen minutes as he returns from injury.
Off-season signing Hayden Doyle and young goalkeeper Tando Velaphi were the most recognizable names in the Glory side.
