It was a great start to the week for some of Soccer Smart and Soccer Smart USA’s players in Australia as the news that they had secured promotion was finally confirmed.

Soccer Smart USA’s Brennan Joaquin alongside Soccer Smart’s Eddie Gallagher and Alex Meaney all wanted to play football abroad in Australia and since we helped them secure the move abroad to play soccer in Australia, they have all been in fine form for Boroondara Eagles. The team who play in the Victoria State Leagues have been helped by the trio’s fine performances, so much so that the Eagles have been crowned as champions of their league!

Their triumph means the Eagles will be competing in State League 1 next season. Congratulations to Brennan, Eddie and Alex!

On Tuesday the first Gibraltar team of the week was announced and it was good news for Tam Dimario. The Bruno’s Magpies defender, fresh from helping his side win their first game of the season 9-0, was selected to be part of the team of the week, one of only two selected from his side.

Well done Tam! If you’re interested in playing in Gibraltar then click here.
