South Melbourne FC is pleased to confirm that former NPL Youth Player of the Season Gerrie Sylaidos has re-signed for the 2020 NPL Victoria season.

Sylaidos arrived at South from Northcote City in 2019 and immediately made an impact, scoring on four occasions and providing the seven assists in various roles across the attacking third.

The 20-year-old will be looking to take his game to another level under the guidance of Esteban Quintas.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, Senior Football Director Andrew Mesourouni was looking forward to seeing what Gerrie has in store in 2020. “Gerrie is a super talented player and someone who we expect to grow further as a footballer next season. e He will work closely with the coaching staff throughout pre-season and will once again be a key member of attacking line up.”

Gerrie was equally excited about the season ahead. “I am very thankful to the club for extending my time at Lakeside and I am really looking forward to starting pre-season ahead of the upcoming season. On a personal level I will look to improve my game and as a team with some new signings coming on board, I believe we have some exciting times around the corner.

We wish him all the best for the 2020 season.
