Socceroo #308, Robert Wheatley, nominated the Wahroongah Tigers on Sydney's North Shore. When Rob was being picked in the Ku-ring-gai U9 Rep side I was playing in the Tigers 12As getting ready for my one and only rep appearance. Suffice it to say he was the better player, even at that age.
Rob made an impact in the 1980 World Youth Champs & made his debut in the Socceroos the following year in the WC Qualifier against Taiwan.
As a KDSA foundation club Wahroonga was at the heart of what is now the North Shore FA and had 42 clubs & Karuah (pic.) was at
centre of things, culminating in a truly mammoth gala day each August which often attracted TV coverage.
Welcome aboard Rob.
