Nine One Football have added experienced UK born striker Gino Defeo to their coaching staff in readiness for the next block of Small Group Training starting this Saturday (21st July)
Defeo, 36, is still playing State League Football in Australia but now wants to give back his knowledge to the younger generation of Australian Strikers. Defeo started his career at Colchester United in the UK followed by spells in Non League with Braintree Town, Redbridge and more before moving to Australia and playing for numerous clubs with his standout being Kingston City, where he was Leading scorer for 2 years and has a great goalscoring record of a goal every other game for 10 years straight.
Nine One Head Coach Paul Harvey is delighted to have Gino on board "I met Gino through Nick Tolios who spoke highly of him in his time at Kingston. His experience as an out and out No.9 will be invaluable to our players and he has an infectious personality aswell which I'm sure the kids will thrive off" Gino himself is delighted to join Nine One 'I've had coaching role offers but this suits me down to the ground as it is specific to me as a striker so I can give my knowledge back to the youngsters"
Defeo will primarily handle the 13 and under strikers at Nine One with Head Striker Coach Brandon Barnes looking after the older age groups.
