North Eastern MetroStars captain Michael D’Aloisio will become the fifth player to play more than 200 matches for the club, this weekend against Campbelltown City.
D’Aloisio made his senior debut at the age of 15 in 2001 for Para Hill Knights in their Round 11 match against Northern Demons.
He played junior football for Elizabeth Grove, Salisbury City and St Augustines before playing for Para Hills’ youth teams.
In 2002, he was selected to be part of the South Australian Sports Institute program. At the completion of that season, D’Aloisio joined MetroStars, where he played 13 matches in the 2003 South Australian Premier League.
He was part of the 2004 MetroStars team that won the treble, claiming the League, Premiership and Cup titles.
After 29 matches over three seasons at MetroStars, D’Aloisio joined Campbelltown City where he played 122 matches from 2006-2011, where he captained the side in the later years.
In 2012, D’Aloisio re-joined MetroStars, and made an impact in the club’s double run, claiming the League & Cup titles.
D’Aloisio was also part of the club’s inaugural National NPL title in 2014, and won the Federation Cups again in 2016 and 2017.
In 2016, D’Aloisio won the Club Champion Award for the Player of the Year, and since the 2017 season, he has been the captain of the side.
From all at MetroStars, we congratulate Michael on an outstanding achievement.
