The highly anticipated return of the NSW NPL season is fast approaching, with Sydney Olympic FC to face off against last year’s champions Sydney United 58 FC in the first round on February 27 at Belmore Sports Ground.
The squad recommenced training on Monday 4 January with a host of new Sydney Olympic signings, including Michael Glassock, arriving from Pegasus FC in Hong Kong, Daniel Dias, Luke Kairies, Marley Peterson, Yu Hasegawa and Brendan Cholakian.
Head Coach and Olympic Hall of Fame Legend Ante Juric said the players have enjoyed a great pre-season and are ready for the 2021 season start.
“The boys have been great in pre-season, showing an excellent attitude and all the players have been working extremely hard. Pleasingly the new players have already settled in very well, which can be difficult at big clubs like Olympic, so I’m happy about this”, Juric said.
“We are excited for the season ahead and as a group are driven to be successful and driven to add to the history of trophies and championships that this club is about, we can’t wait for the first game to come around so we can put all our hard pre-season training into action against Sydney United”, Juric added.
