Former MetroStars junior secures contract with A-League club Central Coast Mariners
North Eastern MetroStars would like to congratulate former junior player Luca Meggetto who has secured a contract with A-League club Central Coast Mariners.
Luca departed for Sydney on Sunday morning.and will be a part of the Mariners youth team squad for the 2020 National Premier Leagues season.
Luca began his footballing journey at MetroStars, joining the club in 2007, following the footsteps of his father, Robert Meggetto, who played for the club and is a now a life member.
"As a kid I watched my Dad play for MetroStars so it was only natural that my brother and I wanted to play there too."
"In the junior years there were no set positions. We all had to rotate and learn to play every position, even goal keeper. By Under 12's I had decided that being a goalkeeper was what I loved the most."
"I went overseas with my Dad to do some goalkeeper training in the UK and that's where the drive and passion really began."
"Metro has always been my club, my soccer family".
"My family has always been involved at Metro since it started, either playing, coaching or on the committee and my brother Dion still plays there in Under 18's.
"They have a strong junior development program and this continues into the senior years."
"Metro were very supportive when I left to play Skillaroos, NTC and then Adelaide United and are proud and supportive of my achievements as I move to Central Coast Mariners."
"I am grateful for the part they have played in my development over the years and will continue to follow their success as I move forward perusing my dream."
