South Coast stars hit the big time

THE South Coast Soccer Club Under 13’s team was surrounded by stars on the weekend, none bigger than Melbourne City’s David Villa.
The boys were given the opportunity to be ball boys for last weekend’s A League clash at AAMI Park.
They had prime positions right around the pitch to see the one-all draw unfold.
The day was organised by coach Paul Plenkovich and team manager Andrew Kempster.
Paul, who was thrilled for the boys said, “It’s just a great chance for these young players to experience professionals play.  “Being that close to the action really allowed them to take in the style that is played at the highest level.
“Melbourne City was fantastic, everything ran extremely easily.
“They are connecting with grassroots clubs which is really important for the growth of the game.”
For many of the boys it was their first A-League match and to be only metres away from the action and passing balls to their heroes was a real buzz.
Budding goal keeper Scout Greenhalgh situated right behind the Melbourne City fan zone went away on a high.
“It was so loud, especially when that goal went in,” he said.
“I loved being that close.”
