North Eastern MetroStars also would like to congratulate club legend Lee Robertson on his nomination for Life Membership of Football Federation South Australia for his outstanding contribution to football in South Australia.
Lee started playing soccer as a 5 year old for Smithfield Plains before playing for Elizabeth Downs at 6 years old. At 13 he began a stint with APAC for 2 years followed by Campbelltown City and Playford.
As a 23 year old, Lee took a chance at playing for Scotland team Greenock. He spent 1 year at this professional level; training ever day and playing in front of 2,000 people each game.
On his return to Australia in 2004, Robertson joined MetroStars and began leaving his mark as a top defender in the Super League and cemented his legacy as perhaps one of the club's greatest ever servants.
In his first season at the club, he was part of the 2004 MetroStars team that won the treble, claiming the League, Premiership and Cup titles.
Lee's story of success is a true example of the power that determination, commitment and skill can have when combined with truly loving what you do as a soccer player.
Robertson amassed an incredible 243 games for the club, making him the third highest most capped player in the club's history.
In his ten seasons at the club, he was voted Club Champion an incredible six times. He was appointed as club captain in 2011.
In his time at MetroStars, Robertson helped the club to 3 Federation Cups, 7 Minor Premierships, 3 League Championships and 1 NPL National Championship. He most recently helped fellow Metro legend Daniel Godley and his BOSA side to a Divsion 1 championship in the South Australian Amatuer Soccer League.
From all at MetroStars, we congratulate Lee on an outstanding achievement. Lee will be presented with his Life Membership at half-time of Saturday's NPL Grand Final at Cooper Stadium.
