Jevdjevic joins coaching staff

South Melbourne FC wishes to confirm that Bojo Jevdjevic has joined the Club as Goalkeeping Coach ahead of the 2014 National Premier League season. He replaces Rob Graskoski, who joined former SMFC Technical Director Mehmet Durakovic at Malaysian Super League club Selangor FA over the summer.

Bojo Jevdjevic is a name known to many South Melbourne fans due to his goalkeeping for several opposition sides playing against South both in the National Soccer League and the Victorian Premier League over the years. He played in the VPL for Springvale White Eagles, Heidelberg United and Altona Magic and represented Gippsland Falcons/Eastern Pride and Sydney Olympic in the NSL. Ironically, he was in between the sticks when Gianni De Nittis headed Fernando De Moraes’ cross past him for the winning goal in South’s 1-0 victory over Altona Magic in the 2006 VPL Grand Final at Lakeside Stadium.

Jevdjevic is delighted to be joining the Club, adding that “South is a fantastic club and arguably the biggest club in Victoria who I have many special memories of from playing against them. It is great to be a part of the club and am really looking forward to working with the young goalkeepers this year”. He will work closely with goalkeepers Jason Saldaris and Chris Maynard to try and emulate Peter Gavalas’ Goalkeeper of the Year status that the now retired custodian achieved in 2013.

SMFC Coach Chris Taylor was excited to have Jevdjevic arrive at Lakeside Stadium, adding that “Bojo is an excellent addition to our coaching ranks. He comes with a great reputation as both a goalkeeping coach, and as an outstanding goalkeeper in both the VPL and NSL. He will no doubt be a great mentor for the goalkeepers at South Melbourne”.

South Melbourne FC welcomes Bojo Jevdjevic to the Club and wishes him well for the upcoming season.
