Healesville Soccer Club coach Milton Sakkos is excited about the club’s first match for the season, against Ringwood City at the Don Road Complex on Saturday 24 March.
In his first match as senior coach of the Reds, Sakkos says everyone is looking forward to the first game this weekend.
“Everyone is excited with the new team that we have,” he said.
“The team is divided between new players and old players. It will be interesting to see how we go.”
The club has introduced six new players into their playing squad, including Jason Barriento, Miguel Barrigos, Govinda Bohara, Nathan Meneses, as well as Javier and Xavier Torres.
Starting pre-season in late January, the senior players and the reserves have been training every Tuesday and Thursday before their first match against Ringwood.
With the hard work put forward by the senior coach, Sakkos is feeling positive for the players before the new season.
“I don’t know how everyone is going to go. I am feeling positive ahead of the new season,” he said.
“Everyone is excited ahead of the new season.
“We are going to have everyone on the list available.”
Sakkos still believes that there is room for improvement in regards to their fitness.
“I still think we are four weeks away from where we should be,” he said.
“There is still a little bit of work to do and we need to keep improving.
“We need to keep working hard throughout the whole season.”
