John Aloisi, Socceroo #428 has nominated Adelaide City as his GrassRoots club. Though not his first club, City is where John played the bulk of his junior football before heading to the AIS and overseas on a lengthy and colourful career, culminating with his first cap against Macedonia in 1997.
Adelaide City Park is to the city of churches as Middle Park is to Melbourne and it was and still is the home of City's junior squads.
Having turned his hand to coaching & rocking the suit, its the shirt off moment at Homebush in '05 that will forever live in the minds of Australian football fans.
A pleasure to meet, chat with & welcome aboard John Aloisi.
