The club Ian nominated as his GrassRoots club is Blue Mountains FC from Glenbrook the first town on the climb heading west from Sydney.
The club only began in 1965 & Ian was there at Knapsack Park almost at the beginning.
Ian holds a remarkable place in our history making his debut off the bench in 1980 against PNG and then scoring a hat-trick. It was his only "A" international appearance, such was the reign of Rudi Gutendorf.
It is truly a relief to welcome Ian aboard & many thanks to Zisis Nioplias for the pic of the '79 World Youth team.
