South Melbourne FC would like to confirm the re-signing of Leigh Minopoulos head of the 2018 NPL Victoria season.

Minopoulos has been a vital component of South’s attacking third since joining in 2014, playing 115 matches in all competitions and scoring on 33 occasions.

The life-long South fan and former junior player has also been involved in both the 2014 and 2016 NPL Championship wins, as well as playing a large on-field role in our 2015 Dockerty Cup win. He would also be the only South player to have scored against an A-League side in the FFA Cup in our Semi Final defeat at home to Sydney FC in 2017.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, Football Director Nicholas Maikousis was pleased with the re-signing. “Leigh has been a large part of the club for the past 4 seasons and we are naturally pleased to have a player with his ability and leadership qualities re-commit to the club for the upcoming season.”

We welcome Leigh back for 2018 and wish him all the best for another season in blue and white.
