One of 4 players from the same side to pull on the Green & Gold, Mike did start playing until the age of 14 having lived widely and come from Aussie Rules. His under 14 side included Andrew Zinni, Joe Palatsidis & Mehmet Durakovic. Think I'd back that unit against any side anywhere in the country. Ironically the best player in that side, according to the coach, never played for Australia.
Mike was one of 4 to make his Australian debut against Taiwan in 1988 and earned 20 caps at a time when they were hard to come by.
Truly a pleasure to add this piece of the puzzle to our list its great to have Mike Peterson aboard.
