St ALbans Strikers have 7 of their juniors competing at the FFA Nationals
Moses Gondwe, selected in the U’14 team was one of the biggest improvers in 2011. Selected to play central defender in the MFL and Victorian Club Championships, it gave Moses a new sense of responsibility and direction. Quick and skillfull, he is always deadly with his late runs into the attacking half.
Nathan Liberto, playing in his third National Championhips is exstatic about his opportunity to pull the Big V on again in the U’13 competition. The classy leftfooter is great at getting past his opponent and beating the goalkeeper time after time.
Another Strikers player to play in three Nationals in a row is the calm, controlled and collected Jamie Gazelle. The U’13 utility can be used in any position and has a very smart Futsal brain.
Ryan Dragovic is another U’13 Striker who is representing Victoria for the third time. Defenders cant give him an inch of space as he is able to score from any position and angle on the Futsal court.
James Kapuranovski has capped a stellar year with his second Victorian selection. The U’13 shotstopper excelled in the recent Victorian Club Championships, showing himself to be one of the best goalkeepers in the State.
Michael Yoseski in his debut year of Futsal, has gone from great soccer player to great Futsal player. He quickly adapted to the small court and deserves his selection amongst the elite of the state.
And last but not least the powerful and dominant Jonathan Vakirtzis. Totally professional in the way he looks at the sport, the all rounder can play anywhere on the court. The U’14 state rep is the go to man when the game needs to be won.
The Strikers wishes all of the selected players the best of luck in the Nationals. May they represent their state with pride!
