Nikita, began his footballing journey in the Ukraine as a 10 year old and the club he has named, is Torpedo Nikolaev. not only is he the first to nominate Torpedo but he is, at this stage, the first to play his grassroots football in the Ukraine.
Moving to Perth at 13 he settled into the comfortable and highly successful surrounds of Dorrien Gardens & Perth SC, where he spent the rest of his junior career.
The winger made his debut in 2009 off the bench against Ireland and has become a natural impact player where his blinding speed has become a huge asset but led to limited starting opportunities.
A delightful young man, quiet and humble once again it is a pleasure to add his name and club to our list.
