On Saturday the 2nd August, Captain Paul Trimboli made a special visit to wish one of South’s most courageous supporters, Dimitri a happy 19th birthday. Dimitri unfortunately has an inoperable brain tumour and is currently undergoing intensive chemotherapy. As they surrounded him on this special day, his family expressed their hope for a full recovery and were elated with Paul’s generosity. On his 19th birthday, Dimitri was presented with club merchandise and a fully signed strip by the whole team and he now awaits the opportunity to toss the coin at a South home game.
Dimitri, your courage has uplifted all of us at South Melbourne Soccer Club and we wish you and your family the best of luck for the coming future.
