South Melbourne FC commenced it’s 2013 campaign on a warm Wednesday night at Lakeside Stadium with a very impressive 7-0 victory against State League opposition Malvern City.

The match was South’s first friendly game of the 2013 season, one month exactly before the Round 1 clash with Green Gully at Green Gully Reserve.

South dominated the game from the outset with Tyson Holmes scoring a hat trick within the opening 30 minutes in his first match for the club. Following on from this, another debutant Renco Van Eeken was on hand to score another double before the break to give South a commanding 5-0 lead.

In the second half South introduced some younger blood into the side, with many faces from last year’s Under 21 side over the past few seasons making their way onto the park. The dominance however continued and twolovely finishes by Hatzimouratis capped off a 7-0 win for the home side.

South’s next pre-season clash is against newly promoted Pascoe Vale this Satuday at Paisley Park in Altona. Kick off is at 3pm.
