Hellenic’s superstar youngsters

- JOSH SPASARO

HIS side might be the twotime reigning champion outfit, but Hellenic women’s coach Matt Hajdic singled out his younger crop of talent for special praise ahead of the 2021 Norzone Premier League Grand Final against Casuarina on Saturday night.

“We were here last year as well, so it’s another game for us,” he said.

“We don’t want to make too much of a big deal out of it, but a lot of young girls have come up this year which has been very good. We’ve got a lot of first-timers playing in a grand final.

“We had two brand new 15year-olds come up and become week-in, week-out players for us – Mary (Klonaris) and Sophia (Makrylos).

“Daphne (Cholakos) and Moska (Papadakis) stepped up again from last year. They’ve all been big players for us this season.

“I don’t feel like a coach – I just throw them out there and they do the job.”
