AAA SQUAD NEWS FOR 2022

To All Carlton Rovers FC Players & Supporters

CARLTON ROVERS AAA SQUAD

 

As you may be aware, club legend, player and Head Coach of our AAA Mens Squad for 2020 & 2021 seasons, George Koutroulis has decided to step down from the coaching role. Over this time, Kouta has lead this group and together with the players support achieved our most important objective of rebuilding our senior mens squad into a competitive and dedicated footballing group that once again displays all the attributes of a Carlton Rovers player; skilled, committed, hard working with a positive belief and strong camaraderie to the Club and each other.


Kouta will remain heavily involved with our Club, especially our Junior teams and the Committee. He will even enjoy playing again for CRFC with several of our other long term players expected to join him in a new "all stars" team.


The accolades for Koutas contribution to our Club for over 20 years as a talented and fearless player and as a respected leader are many and highly deserved. We thank him for his passion and work rate and hope that every player that wears our colours in the future can do so with the same levels of commitment. Thank you Kouta.      

 

NEW START FOR SEASON 2022

 

In view of recent announcements and with everyone looking forward towards the new 2022 and hopefully uninterrupted season, the Committee has quickly focussed on securing a new Head Coach for our highest graded teams that will be able to continue and enhance the positive journey we have been on over the last couple of seasons.


Today we are pleased to announce the appointment of Rade Kresojevic as the new Head Coach of our AAA Mens Squad. Assisting him with AAAs will be another top line coach in Ante (Tony) Stivic, who will also be the Clubs goalkeeping coach.


Rade is well known to our Club and many of our players, where he was the coach of Carltons U21A team a few seasons back that played in the AAC comp and made the Grand Final. Many of the young lads from that team are today leading players in our AAA Squad. Rade and Tony also has recent success having coached our local rivals Connells Point Premier League to title success as well.


Rade & Tony are highly regarded mentors whose football ethic is put in the hard work, be focussed and enjoy the game as that will bring out the best from every player to ensure we can then play the best football. They are winners, care about the players and will be able to help develop and grow our players into better footballers and people.


Especially pleasing is that Rade & Tony understand the Carlton Rovers psyche and bond we have to our Club and team mates. They want this to continue across all our teams and be the reason why everyone wants to be a Carlton Rover. Please feel free to contact Rade or Tony directly.


Rade     0419 975954     radekresojevic@gmail.com           Tony     0419 400204      antestivic63@hotmail.com   


Please join us to thank Kouta for his work and to also welcome our new AAA coaching team Rade & Tony to the Carlton Rovers family.


We look forward to welcoming all our great teams back in 2022. Stay Safe at all times.

VALE SOK MALLIOS

The Club regretfully advises the passing of one of its much loved player, coach, friend and former Committee man, Sokratis Mallios aged 51 years.

On Wednesday 6 December, after 12 months battling bravely Sok succumbed to the leukemia. He was surrounded by his family and loved ones and slipped away peacefully and without pain.

Sok was a genuine Club stalwart having played Premier League, Over 35A & O45A and who for many years was a big part of the fabric and greatly contributed to building the culture of our Club. Not only did he have passion for the game, he was a skillful player, fierce competitor and wonderful coach. He was also a first class administrator and since 2012 was the Executive Director of the SGFA where he was able to help improve, grow and plan for our game to be sustainable into the future. 

We extend our deepest sympathies to the Mallios families in particular his wife and three children for their huge loss and to Sok's many friends who he played with and against since he started playing in 1971. 

Rest in Peace dear friend.

GRAND FINAL WINNERS 2016

GRAND FINAL WINNERS FOR 2016   
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR AAE  &  AAW-B TEAMS

AAE  2016 CHAMPIONS
    
In a masterclass of how to take your chances our AAE Mens team defeated a valiant and youthful Sans Souci team that were half their age in great style 6-1. Leading 1-0 at the break we knew first to score in the second half would win the game and the lads stayed focused and kept their shape restricting Souci and at the same time able to keep the pressure on up front where it counts. In the end the experience of old and experienced heads in the Carlton Rovers team worked cleverly to win the Grand Final. This team is like a Penfolds Grange, they just get better the older they become.



AAW B  2016 CHAMPIONS

In an epic and tense game versus the Minor Premiers Forest Rangers the young legs in Carlton Rovers team worked tirelessly to win the Grand Final with the two best teams battling out another tense and exciting match played in front of a large and vocal crowd. After going down 1 nil midway through the 1st half we dug deep and kept playing our football but without reward. Displaying some gritty effort and composure we stepped up and played out of our skins as we piled on massive pressure early in the second half that we got an equaliser. The CRFC girls were on a roll with the run of the game going our way we scored the second and game winning goal. 2-1 to Carlton. 

This was a special win against a very good opponent  that made us play the game of our lives. Well done to all the players.



Also we need to congratulate and commiserate our other Grand Finalists that despite best efforts were unable to claim the victory. We are very proud of you all. 

AAB U21 team that played a mighty game going down 4-2 to Lugarno in a high quality match that was only decided in the last 10 minutes. Good luck for the Champions of Champions series.


AAC 2  team that fell behind 3-0 in the first 20 minutes making it very hard. To their credit the lads didn't give up and battled hard to get back into the game but it wasn't to be losing to Hurstville Glory 4-1
.

Carlton Teams in 2014 Finals

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR O45A TEAM - GRAND FINAL CHAMPIONS FOR 2014

Carlton Rovers  vs   Scots        WON  3 - 2

In an entertaining game the leagues best two teams put in great and gutsy performances and wrote another chapter in their long history of epic matches. This mighty Carlton side was not going to let go of this opportunity and took the challenge to its highly skilled opponents with an entertaining style of open football that thrilled the crowd. Despite going a goal down early, we responded with some crash and bash and then dominated large sections of play where we managed to claw the game back to 1 all after a great free kick from Spiro Hantzis (Lionel). The half time speech noted a good start was required and we did that with some great play leading to a high speed raid down the flank where Lionel delivered the perfect cross for a rampaging Michael Lardis (Bruiser) to score with an emphatic header to take us into the lead. With 20 minutes to go we lost our way and panicked a bit and our opponents didn't need an invitation with their skilled midfield launching attack after attack which resulted in a them scoring and making it 2 all. However, this is where that special Carlton Rovers spirit came to the fore as we lifted for the last 10 minutes and launched our own raids resulting in a great cross from John Skyllas (The Alchemist) finding Joe di Meglio (Mr Juventus) in the centre who slotted in our third and ultimately the match winning goal. In a frantic last 5 minutes we repelled the onslaught with scampering defence to keep Scots at bay.

The final whistle was sweet for all the lads. There were many fine performances with the defensive structure holding tight against the most formidable attack over the last 10 years, the mids lead by that Terror Palapanis always searching for open spaces and the forwards who kept the Scots defence busy. It was a great squad effort all year as we all rotated through and supported each other.

A big thank you to our Supacoach (Sok) for arranging our shirts, shorts, socks, beers & undies all year long and off coarse to all our families and supporters that follow us around for 20 weeks of the year, players from other Carlton teams and the many friends from others Clubs that turned up and made it such a special night. 

I wanna be a Carlton Rover, I wanna be a football star........

BIANCA CUP 2014

Carlton Rovers has lifted the Bianca Cup in 2014. This trophy was struck as a friendship preseason tournament between Carlton Rovers & Miranda Magpies to honour the tragic loss of a much loved daughter of a former PL coach known to many at both Clubs.

The annual Gala Day with our good friends at the Magpies was run on Sunday 16 March. The crowds were entertained by some highly competitve games that were played in great spirit. At the end of the tournament the Carlton teams including our WPL, O45A, AAB 1 & R, AAA 1 & R had performed very well with no lossses recorded.

On behalf of the two great Clubs we thank all the players and hope we all take some time to reflect on how lucky many of us are and to enjoy life to the fullest with our friends, family and clubmates.
