This Sunday we celebrate Will Angel’s 200th match. Will came through the junior ranks at Olympic before making his 1st grade debut in 2011 against Wollongong Wolves.
Will is a tremendous club person and has been an exceptional performer for Olympic over a long time. This Sunday will be a special day and big match for the team against Rockdale City Suns FC.
Round 18 Preview –
The Premiership race is heating up and Round 18 of the National Premier Leagues NSW season is sure to offer another week of exhilarating match action.
APIA Leichhardt Tigers are only one point behind competition front runners Sydney Olympic FC and with five games left to play this one is sure to go down to the wire.
The battle for the fifth and final playoff spot is still as tightly contested as it has been all season with six teams all a realistic shot of making the finals.
This round will be huge in many ways as next weekend a bye round will take shape due to the Waratah Cup Final that will be fought out between reigning Cup champions Hakoah Sydney City East and APIA Leichhardt Tigers, a reply of the 2017 battle.
The action gets underway on Saturday night and wraps up on Wednesday June 11 when Manly United host Sydney FC under lights at Cromer Park.
Rockdale City Suns v Sydney Olympic, 5pm Sunday at Ilinden Sports Centre
Rockdale City Suns are on the cusp of the top five and a win against rivals Sydney Olympic on Sunday would go a long way towards helping Paul Reid’s side confirming a finals spot.
The Suns were 4-3 winners against Manly United in a high scoring contest at Ilinden Sports Centre last week.
Olympic were on the wrong end of a losing scoreline in Round 17 as the suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Blacktown City.
Former Socceroos shot stopper Ante Covic will have his hands full on Sunday as he attempts to keep a clean sheet against the dynamic attack of Sydney Olympic. If anyone is able to stop them it is Covic.
Radovan Pavicevic has played second fiddle to Alejandro Sanchez for most of the season, but the former Newcastle Jets rising star is set to play an important role on the run towards the finals.
He offers Abbas Saad’s side a variation in a attack which is important to breaking down the toughest defences.
Rockdale have had trouble defensively this season and will need their best performance to limit Olympic.
Olympic will be favourites away from home but Rockdale have the players to cause an upset.
