North Eastern MetroStars would like to acknowledge and thank outgoing Club President Andrew Perrone.
As an original member of the MetroStars team, formed 24 years ago, Andrew Perrone has been a vital contributor to the growth and success of the club.
A player for the reserves for two seasons, Andrew was one of the first Knights who began the journey to create a whole new standard of soccer in South Australia.
On deciding to retire from playing, Perrone became secretary for the committee of Metro Knights, before taking a break for two years to focus on family commitments.
Although always a part of the club, it wasn’t until Andrew’s son Mark decided he wanted to follow the family legacy at five years old, becoming a part of Metro’s first U8 team, that Andrew again joined the committee as Junior Coordinator, the same year Metro joined the Premier league.
In 2014, Andrew take over as President from Tony Taormina. Under his reign MetroStars were able to win one minor Premiership, 2 Federation Cup titles and 1 NPL National title.
We look forward to Andrew and his wife Mirella at the club watching from the sidelines for many years to come!
