The Rock-itt : April 2010
Sam Gallagher in Manly United Grade 20 guise less than a year ago! More news from Central Coast Mariners. Former Manly United defender Sam Gallagher, who was drafted into the Sydney FC senior squad late in the season as long- term injury cover for Matt Jurman, has been snapped up by Graham Arnold as part of his set up for next season. We've spoken with Sam in these columns previously and it's great to see his career continuing in an upward trajectory. More good news, this time from Yorkshire in England, Huddersfield to be precise, where former Manly United junior Aiden D'Arcy has signed terms with Huddersfield Town's Academy. Academy manager Graham Mitchell said of Aiden's signing; "He first came to our attention during Manly's tour of England back in 2007, but his father has recently moved to England for work reasons and that gave us the opportunity to offer him a trial. He has done very well during his trial period and now we have given him the opportunity to become a professional at Huddersfield Town if he makes the grade." He will have at least one Aussie mate at the Tykes, former Mariner Dean Heffernan is currently braving the chill to play with the Town. Future stars in the making at Cromer Park, Anthony Kalik and Lachlan Wales from the U13 Boys and Chloe O'Brien and Natasha Prior from the U13 Girls have been selected into New South Wales State Teams to play in the upcoming 2010 National Junior Championships played in Canberra from the 7 April to 10 April 2010. Staying with future stars, the 11th Annual Robbie Slater Schools Cup was played over two days at the end of March on Nolan's Reserve. The Cup, played in association with Manly United provided heaps of fun for over 1500 local junior school players. Robbie Slater said; "Some really caught my eye, the main emphasis is on participation but from what I saw the game is in very safe hands from a grassroots perspective" An exciting game just announced and the last game either team will play before flying to South Africa for the World Cup sees Australia play New Zealand at the MCG on May 24th. This is sure to be a sell out, even I might go! It won't be the Socceroos last game before the World Cup, they will play the USA in Roodepoort, South Africa on June 5th and Foxtel will have the game live.
