Making her debut in February 2015 against the Kiwis is our latest offering. Matilda #195, Alex Chidiak, has offered up the Croydon Kings as her GrassRoots Club.
Formerly the Polonia club in Adelaide's inner north, Kings have a proud history counting Socceroo keeper Roger Romanowicz amongst its alumni & awaiting confirmation of another. The juniors play out of Regency Oval while Alex now counts herself as a City-sider playing in the W-League.
A delightful young lady, its a pleasure to welcome her aboard.
Greg Werner began playing in 1965, with the GrassRoots club of Socceroo skipper Murray Barnes, moved at age 6 to the club that would be the GrassRoots club of Rob Wheatley & after a 27 year hiatus came back to playing with the GrassRoots club of Socceroos Steve Perry, Richie Bell, Chris Iconomidis & Matilda, Justine Fisher, one could say that the links with the NT are ingrained.
At age 55, when his body gave up on playing, he took up the whistle to stay actively involved. In November of 2014 he created the GFP on Facebook to fill the void left by those in control of the game & in January 2016 launched this website.
