South Melbourne FC is pleased to confirm the signing of Andrew Mullett ahead of the 2014 National Premier League season.
Mullett arrives having played at Dandenong Thunder and most recently Oakleigh Cannons and Melbourne Heart Youth and will link up with former coach Chris Taylor at Lakeside Stadium. He will also link up with former team mates Iqi Jawadi, Tim Mala, Nick Epifano and Matthew Theodore. As a young left-back, he will provide another steady defensive option following the signing of Michael Eagar over the summer. Mullet had an outstanding 2012 with the Thunder, playing every minute of every game but was cruelly sent off in 54th minute of the Preliminary Final and subsequently missed playing in the Grand Final win over Oakleigh Cannons. Taylor will be expecting another solid season in 2014 from a player with plenty of potential.
SMFC Football Director Nicholas Maikoussis was delighted with the signing, adding that “Andrew joins what is a strong squad for the upcoming inaugural NPL season. He benefited greatly from participating in the Foxtel National Youth League, and we are looking forward to seeing Andrew on the park with his defensive skills”.
South Melbourne FC welcomes Andrew Mullett to the Club and wishes him the best for the upcoming season.
