Sydney United 58 have moved swiftly in re-signing and recruiting its players for the 2019 National Premier Leagues NSW Men’s season with Reds head coach Miro Vlastelica at the helm once more.
The former NSL giants were dealt a blow losing mercurial playmaker Panny Nikas to rivals Rockdale City Suns but have picked up promising former Marconi Stallions youngster Judah Cleur as well as former Wollongong Wolves sharpshooter Peter Simonoski.
The club will also unveil former U17 and U20’s Uruguayan international Sebastian Gallegos as one of its main players for the new season.
The 26-year-old comes with a lot of pedigree having played for Uruguayan giants Penarol as well as clubs in Italy, Spain, Romania, Peru and Chile.
His rise to fame was when he scored five goals in five matches for the 17 Uruguayan squad at the 2009 FIFA Under 17 World Cup held in Nigeria where he shared the Golden Boot with three other players.
Gallegos spent the last half of the season plying his trade with National Premier Leagues 3 NSW Men’s outfit Hawkesbury City before making the move to United 58 for next year.
Sydney United Sports Centre will once again see the likes of players such as Glen Trifiro, Patrick Antelmi, Matthew Sim, Yianni Perkatis, Yianni Fragogiannis, Christian Gonzalez, Tariq Maia, Jordan Roberts, Sam Perre, Adrian Vlastelica as well as goalkeeper Tom Manos.
Club captain Nick Stavroulakis will once again don the Sydney United 58 jersey with the 33-year-old set for his fifth season with the club. The new year will see the midfielder look towards assisting coach Miro Vlastelica as well as assistant Jerry Bilokapic.
The club has also hired former Socceroos Strength and Conditioning coach Craig Duncan to the backroom staff.
The club will commence preseason training in December.
