South Melbourne FC is delighted to announce the signing of 24 year old striker Rhys Meredith for the 2013 Victorian Premier League season.
Meredith joins the club from Brisbane Premier League club Redlands United, where he was regarded as one of the most dangerous and exciting attacking players in the league.
The speedy attacker’s 19 goal 2012 season caught the eye of A-League outfit Western Sydney Wanderers, with Tony Popovic asking Meredith to trial with the club along side former South player Jason Trifiro. Unfortunately despite some outstanding performances, Meredith was overlooked and returned home to Queensland.
It was during this period however where he was able to tear apart reigning A-League Premiers Brisbane Roar for Redlands in a friendly game. In what was a man of the match performance, Meredith scored a hat trick in a narrow loss for Redlands.
It is with the ability to score and lightning pace that Meredith was seen as an ideal fit for the South squad.
We wish him well for the 2013 season and beyond.
