The latest player to nominate his GrassRoots club is Socceroo #311. Oscar Crino has given us two names… San Lorenzo from his home town of Buenos Aires & Footscray J.U.S.T, of well, Footscray. Oscar had a couple of years at the Viejo Gasometro before arriving in Melbourne as an 11yr old & joining Jim Milisavljevic in calling Schintler Reserve home. Welcome aboard Oscar.

Greg Werner began playing in 1965, with the GrassRoots club of Socceroo skipper Murray Barnes, a change of suburb at age 6 and a new club, one that would become 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.
