Sydney Olympic FC prove too strong for Manly United


Sydney Olympic FC made it two from two to kick off the 2023 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s season with a professional 3-1 victory over Manly United at Cromer Park on Saturday night.

All of the goalscoring action unfolded mid-way through the first half, as Seiya Kambayashi opened his account for the season before Olympic fired back with three quick-fire strikes.

Despite plenty of Manly pressure in the second stanza, earlier goals to Fabio Ferreira, Roy O’Donovan and Nick Fitzgerald ensured Labinot Haliti’s men would continue their perfect start to the campaign, taking a valuable three points back to Belmore.

Post-game, Sydney Olympic coach Labinot Haliti was pleased with the result away from home.

“It was a good game, they’re a good side and we came here wanting to put in a good performance,” he said.

“I thought we were good value for the points, they’re obviously a good side that you have to give respect. It was a good match to watch; a bit too open for me in the second half but that’s what happens sometimes.”
