Tim Cahill, Socceroo #476, is too big a name to have only one GrassRoots club & if you read his wonderful biography you'll know why. I was lucky enough speak to Tim at Leichhardt Oval only a stone's throw from his first home ground where he spent a year at Balmain Police Boys SC. He then moved over Parramatta road to Mackie Park & the Marrickville Red Devils. He then honed his skills further at Sydney Olympic. He would not single out any one club as he insisted each had contributed to making him the player he has become.
Tim made his Socceroo debut off the bench against Sth. Africa at Loftus Rd in 2004. He has since gone on to become Australia's all-time leading goalscorer, our first scorer at a World Cup finals, the global ambassador for the Heartbeat of Football & "a Weetbix kid".
Both a pleasure and an honour to welcome aboard, The Headmaster... Tim Cahill.
