South Melbourne FC is excited to announce the signing of Antonia Niteros for the 2017 NPL Victoria Season.
The former Ashburton and Casey player joins the club following one season in the in inaugural NPL Victoria Women’s Competition, where she captained Southern United and represented Victoria in the Bass Strait Cup.
Niteros is a tough, vocal and uncompromising defender who will immediately add to SMFC’s defensive stocks for the season ahead. By doing so, she will link up with new signing Alex Gummer and Captain Alex Cheal to form a formidable defensive unit.
Speaking to smfc.com.au, Niteros was excited to have joined the club. “South has always been a club that I have admired due to their professionalism of both the players and the club itself. It has been an environment that I’ve personally aspired to be a part of and felt right at home during my first pre-season session. I am looking forward to playing with a great group of girls and playing under a great Coach in Soc, who has great vision for the team and the club”.
Women’s Football Director Gabrielle Guiliano was pleased to sign another leader to the club. “Toni joins the club coming off a great season where she developed into a leader for Southern United. While she will add a great deal to our defence on the park, we’ve signed her also to add some leadership to the club through her experiences as a captain and a state representative in 2016”.
We wish Antonia all the best for the 2017 season.
