Tsiaras, Mala, and Epifano commit to South in 2014

South Melbourne FC is pleased to advise that Dimi Tsiaras, Tim Mala and Nick Epifano have all re-committed to the Club for the 2014 season.

Dimi Tsiaras arrived at Lakeside Stadium from the Richmond Eagles for the beginning of the 2012 Victorian Premier League season. The defensive midfielder has since represented South Melbourne FC on 31 occasions in both League and Dockerty Cup matches, scoring one goal in the process. Although he only made nine senior appearances in 2013 largely due to a nasty injury sustained against Green Gully on Sunday 7 July, Dimi has shown faith not only in Coach Chris Taylor but also in the Club by extending his stay at Lakeside Stadium.

Tim Mala arrived at the Club from Dandenong Thunder in the 2013 mid-season transfer window. The right-back made 12 appearances for South in the second half of the season and played his part in South’s rise from mid-table mediocrity to an eventual Preliminary Final finish.

Like Mala, Nick Epifano also joined South from Dandenong Thunder in the mid-season transfer window. The left-sided midfielder made 13 appearances and scored three goals for his new Club, with his debut goal coming against the Bentleigh Greens at Lakeside Stadium on Sunday 21 July.

Speaking to, SMFC Football Director Nicholas Maikousis said “we are quite excited to commence announcing the re-signing of a number of our existing players. All three players were required by Chris Taylor, and we are looking for a big season from the boys in 2014. We have been working very hard in the off season to further strengthen the squad, and we will be making further announcements of new player signings shortly.”
