Sydney Olympic Football Club is delighted to announce the re-signing of 16 players from its 2018 Championship winning squad for the 2019 season.
In 2018, the squad enjoyed a very successful season winning both the NSW NPL Premiership and Championship and to retain a large majority of the squad is a huge boost for the club and its fans.
Head Coach Abbas Saad stated;
“Our squad has a great mix of youth and experience and to be able to retain the core of our squad is testimony to how hungry we all are to maintain the momentum of last season and be better again”.
“The exceptional talent, effort and dedication these players demonstrated in 2018 made it a very easy decision to retain them”.
“We have celebrated the success of last season and understand this season is a fresh start and we need to work hard to ensure we do the very best for this great club and our fans”.
Club CEO John Boulous expressed;
“Our club has a very clear philosophy to develop and support players by creating an environment and culture for them to reach their potential. This is evident by the recent departure of Max Burgess to the Wellington Phoenix, as well as George Timotheou to Bundasliga giants FC Schalke 04 in July”.
“In the coming week we will be announcing some new signings that will compliment these retained players and round off our squad for the 2019 season”.
The squad will commence pre-season training in mid-November.
