South Melbourne FC is pleased to confirm the signing of Milos Lujic ahead of the 2014 season. The centre-forward arrives from Northcote City in what has been a straight swap between the clubs, following Trent Rixon’s return to Northcote after two years with South Melbourne.

Lujic arrives at Lakeside Stadium following an outstanding 2013 season that saw him score 21 goals in the Victorian Premier League, including a goal in the 3-2 extra time win over Bentleigh Greens in the Grand Final. He scored 18 goals in the regular season, including scoring a double in six different matches. He then went on and scored another three goals in the finals series, two of which came against South in Northcote’s 5-0 demolition job at SS Anderson Reserve on Sunday 13 October. Along with Michael Eagar, Lujic was a vital part of Northcote’s success in 2013 and South coach Chris Taylor will be delighted to have secured both players for the 2014 season.

Speaking to, Football Director Nicholas Maikousis said “we are quite excited with the addition of Milos to the squad. Milos is someone who we have admired and followed his progress for a while now. He had an extraordinary season at Northcote City where he played a leading role in their championship season, and will further strengthen our attacking options”.

South Melbourne FC welcomes Milos Lujic to the Club and wishes him the very best for the new season.
