With a return to pre-season only a week old, Sydney FC kicked off their first round of community visits on Tuesday night with the squad out imparting their knowledge on the next generation of Australian footballers.
Braving the chill that accompanies winter nights, the players were in all corners of Sydney taking training sessions, meeting the kids and taking time out of their schedules to take photos and sign plenty of autographs.
New boys Riley Woodcock and Brandon O’Neill visited Ryde Saints FC at Pidding Park in the north-west while Anthony Bouzanis and Christopher Naumoff were in the Sutherland Shire at Lugarno FC.
Ali Abbas and Andrew Hoole headed west to see Burwood FC while Zac Anderson and Seb Ryall were in the city’s east at Mosman FC, with the club’s Director of Coaching Andrew Taylor praising the players appearance at training.
“We were thrilled to have Sebastian and Zac attend our training at Mosman FC and spend time watching and talking to players in our Academy and grassroots teams,” he said.
“It was a fantastic opportunity for our players to hear about life as a professional footballer and to further develop ties between Mosman FC and Sydney FC.”
With the squad travelling to Perth on Tuesday for the Westfield FFA Cup visits will be limited next week, however those not travelling will again be out in the Community. Stay tuned to find out where the boys will be next week.
