U15s Newcastle Olympic player George Tsamouras will continue his football journey at the Newcastle Jets in 2022!
After being chosen to train with the u16s Jets squad mid-way through the 2021 season, while playing for U15s Newcastle Olympic in the NNSW NPL competition, the player has been invited to join the Jets Academy for the 2022 season!
George began his football journey at Olympic as an u6 back in 2012. At the end of the season as an u9 in 2015 he was identified by Newcastle Football and spent the remaining three seasons in the elite Skill Acquisition Programme run initially by Newcastle Football and then by NNSW Football.
He returned to Olympic in 2019 and joined the u13s NPL competition while at the same time being part of the Talent Support Programme, run by NNSW Football. The following two seasons, despite being interrupted by Covid-19 restrictions and lockdowns, the Newcastle Olympic team were back-to -back premiers! George himself was successful in being picked in the Talent Support Programme of 2021, the NNSW State Team which was scheduled to play in the Australian Nationals and finally the Academy of the Newcastle Jets. George was also voted Newcastle Olympic U15’s Player’s Player of the Year for 2021!
A brilliant end to the 2021 season and a promising football journey in 2022.
