Team of the Week for Round 1 saw Bonnyrigg White Eagles shot stopper James Chronopoulos earn himself a spot between the sticks with a clean sheet.
Parramatta FC’s captain and club stalwart Patrick Gatt took the mantle in the centre of defence.
David Gullo helped himself to a brace on Parramatta’s return to the top flight, while Sean O’Connell debuted for his new club Sutherland Sharks and was a standout in the role of defensive midfielder.
Joel Chianese had the greatest of debut’s for the Bonnyrigg White Eagles, picking up two goals away at Manly and earning him a spot in the team. Fellow former Sydney FC youngster Mitch Mallia stole the show this week though, scoring a hat-trick for Blacktown City against Sydney United 58 FC.
