Young braveheart bolsters SMFC’s strike force

South Melbourne FC is pleased to announce the signing of forward, Robbie Cattanach.

The 20 year old striker joins South from NSW Premier League club Blue Devils, formally known as Belconnen from the ACT. He is a proven goal scorer having scored 13 goals in the NSW top-flight league in 2005, and was the top goal scorer in the National Youth League in season 03/04, scoring 22 goals for Canberra Deakin.

At such a young age, Robbie already has many credits to his name, which include a 5 week trial with Scottish side Partick Thistle FC and being on loan to Sydney FC during their 2005 Oceania World Club Championship Qualifiers in Tahiti.

When asked why he wanted to join South Melbourne, Robbie didn’t hesitate to show his excitement, “South Melbourne is the most famous football club in Australia. I want to be able to look back at my career in years to come and say I’ve played for South and I’ve graced Bob Jane Stadium”.

Robbie has already started training with the rest of the SMFC squad and is keen to make his debut as early as this weekend’s game against South’s long time NSL rivals, the Melbourne Knights. “This is a thrill for me! I have been told about how vocal the Clarendon Corner is and I can’t wait to get out there in front of all the South Melbourne supporters”.
