In this week’s edition, has caught up with SMFC goalkeeper Tommi Tomich

Tomich has impressed all at lakeside in his short stint at the club, playing a key role in South’s second half of the season, as well as providing Michael Michalakopoulos with another quality goalkeeping option alongside veteran Dean Anastasiadis.

With a massive contest against Richmond coming up this Friday night, Tommi was kind enough to spare a minute of his time to answer a few questions about himself.
