St. George FA vs. Hurstville City Minotaurs – Saturday 28 May, 7PM at Peter Moore Field

St. George continue to steamroll forward this season, and show no signs of slowing down as they take on local rivals Hurstville City this weekend.

Every week, coach Manny Spanoudakis laments his squad’s challenges with injuries – indeed, this week the team lost Jordan Janic for a month, while they continue to look for a goalkeeper.

Nevertheless, each week St. George continue to win impressively, drawing upon a talented range of youth players to backup for the first team.

Spanoudakis says that his team is looking forward to “another big derby against the Minotaurs, and another tough game”.

Hurstville City have endured a season full of heartbreak, exemplified perfectly in their Round 8 loss to Wagga where they gave up a two goal lead against ten men.

Coach Peter Sarikakis has an almighty challenge in maintaining squad morale, and acknowledges that on paper St. George “should be too strong for the struggling Minotaurs who are hurting with players, injuries and absentees”.

Nevertheless, Sarikakis asserted, “We will try to put eleven players on the park with the famous club spirit on the line.”

“Maybe I will try to park a double decker bus in front of our goal area.”
