South Melbourne FC is excited to announce the signing of South Hobart striker Andy Brennan ahead of the 2015 NPL Victoria season.
After an injury interrupted year in the Victorian Premier League with Bentleigh Greens in 2013, Brennan returned to Tasmania in 2014 and took the state by storm.
Brennan joins the Club after a stunning year for South Hobart, where he scored 25 League goals and played a major role in his side winning the NPL Tasmania (Victory League) Championship. On a personal level, Brennan’s exceptional season saw him take out the South Hobart Best and Fairest award and he also finished second in the 2014 Tasmanian Mitsubishi Best and Fairest award for the best player in the state.
Brennan also played a leading role in South Hobart’s qualification for the 2014 FFA Cup and PlayStation 4 NPL Finals Series. Many will recall how Brennan’s pace caused the South defence all sorts of problems during South’s difficult 0-1 victory against South Hobart at the South Hobart Ground on Saturday 20 September.
Twenty One year old Brennan will provide South Melbourne FC with a versatile player across the front half of the ground. He is able to play in multiple positions, including on either wing, behind the strikers or as a centre-forward. His elite speed, ability to take on defenders and a thirst for goal has made him one of the most prolific goal scorers in Tasmanian football.
Speaking to smfc.com.au, South Melbourne FC Football Director Nicholas Maikousis was pleased to have the young talent arrive at Lakeside Stadium. “Andy is a very exciting young talent who has been doing extremely well in Tasmania. We believe that with some hard work, he will be able to adapt to the game in Victoria and provide us with another attacking option for the 2015 season. He certainly caused us some headaches when we last played South Hobart and we look forward to him commencing his journey with us.”
Also speaking to smfc.com.au, Brennan could not contain his excitement at joining the club “I’m thrilled to join such a big club in South Melbourne. With the history behind the club and the people who are involved with it now it’s looks to be an exciting prospect ahead.”
South Melbourne FC welcomes Andy Brennan to the Club and wishes him the best for the upcoming season. Also, stay tuned for a major announcement regarding South Hobart and South Melbourne FC.
