Grassroots Football Project – Help Required

SSFA General Manager December 5, 2016 Football News, Representatives Comments Off on Grassroots Football Project – Help Required

The Grassroots Football Project aims to recognise the Grassroots Club of the almost 800 players who have represented Australia at the highest level.


As part of this project we seek assistance from local clubs to identify all players who have represented Australia having started their football Journey in the Shire. Once we have contacted the player, we ask them to nominate their grassroots club.


John Roche – Socceroo #215 – Como

Richard Bell – Socceroo #253 – Cronulla RSL

Steve Perry – Socceroo #273 – Cronulla RSL

Jamie Rosman – Matilda #16 – Gymea United

Dalys Carmody – Matilda #59 – Grays Point

Graham Arnold – Socceroo#334 – Gwawley Bay

Mike Grbevski – Socceroo #385 – Gwawley Bay

Joel Griffiths – Socceroo #486 – Menai Hawks

Ryan Griffiths – Socceroo #499 – Menai Hawks

Adam Griffiths – Socceroo #507 – Menai Hawks

Dean Heffernan – Socceroo #521 – Bosco

Servet Uzunlar – Matilda #165 – Nth. Sutherland

Chris Ikonomidis – Socceroo #580 – Cronulla RSL

Alex Gersbach – Socceroo #587 – Miranda



If we have missed anybody we want to know about it. We believe Toni McMahon the very first Matilda’s goalkeeper played for Bundeena but there may well be others.


Each of these players have been capped at full international level and deserved an official place in the history of Shire football.


Please help us close the gap between the GrassRoots and the Green & Gold, any information should be forwarded to .


Thank You Greg Werner
