South Melbourne FC is excited to announce the addition of 19 year old Kobbie Boahene and 15 year old Andy Kecojevic to its senior squad ahead of the 2014 National Premier League season.
Boahene is formerly of the Australian Institute of Sport and Melbourne Victory Youth and has impressed throughout the pre-season with his blistering pace and ability to beat defenders on both the right and left wings.
After catching Chris Taylor’s eye at a youth training session, Kecojevic’s elevation to the senior squad will provide South with another option in the forward half. He has impressed the coaching staff with his abilities and attitude for such a young man. Previously he represented the National Training Centre and also played for Springvale White Eagles.
Boahene and Kecojevic have both found the back of the net during the pre-season and will add even more youth to an already young South squad that has only two players over 25 years of age, those being Dimi Tsiaras (29) and Tyson Holmes (26).
Speaking to smfc.com.au, SMFC Football Director Nicholas Maikousis said “it is quite exciting to see these two young talented players make the transition to the senior squad. It will be an incredible experience for young Andy, who at 15 years of age, wil be training with the senior team. It will be a steep learning curve, but this will tremendously benefit his development. We have been quite impressed with Kobbie’s pace and skill, and are hoping to see him replicate these terrific performances during the season”.
South Melbourne FC welcomes both Kobbie Boahene and Andy Kecojevic to the senior side and wishes them the best for the upcoming season.
