Sydney Olympic FC appoints Roy O’Donovan as assistant coach


Sydney Olympic FC (SOFC) have appointed striker Roy O’Donovan as the new first-grade men’s assistant coach for the upcoming National Premier Leagues NSW competition.

This comes after the Irish Australian footballer confirmed in October that he will be re-signing with the club for the 2023 season.

O’Donovan will work closely with Sydney Olympic’s head coach Labinot Haliti, who was appointed after the departure of Ante Juric in August.

“Roy has had a massive impact both on and off the field for the SOFC family,” the club wrote in a Facebook post.

“In liaison with Head Coach Labinot Haliti, these two will surely make their name as the DYNAMIC DUO. Bring on the 2023 season!”

This announcement comes as Sydney Olympic also confirmed a number of new players and transfers ahead of the next NPL NSW season.

Among the five new players are: Nick Fitzgerald, former Perth Glory FC, Newcastle Jets and Central Coast Mariners player; Micky Neill from the Central Coast Mariners and Newcastle Jets; James Georgaklis from Manly United; Jack Simmons from Dandenong Thunder FC and the Newcastle Jets; and Peter Politis, who was in the Sydney Olympic Under 20s squad.
