South Melbourne FC is pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Nikola Roganovic ahead of the PlayStation 4 National Premier League season kicking off in a week’s time.

Roganovic returns to football in 2015 after having a two-year break from the game to establish his own business. Prior to his break, he represented Springvale White Eagles, Altona Magic and Green Gully in the Victorian Premier League. He was in between the sticks when Altona won the 2009 VPL Grand Final before switching to Green Gully and playing in their back-to-back Championships in 2010 and 2011. Roganovic then represented Melbourne Heart briefly before taking a break from the game.

He returns to South Melbourne FC eleven years after winning the National Youth League title with the Club in 2004. He will be competing with Peter Gavalas for a starting berth in between the sticks in 2015.

Speaking with smfc.com.au, South Melbourne FC Football Director Nicholas Maikousis was excited about Roganovic’s signing. “Nikola has been training with us for quite a while now. I am pleased that we have managed to sort out the goalkeeping situation, with Peter Gavalas and Nikola now both competing for a starting berth next Thursday night against Oakleigh.”

South Melbourne FC welcomes Nikola Roganovic to the Club and wishes him the best for the upcoming season.
