O’HARE HAPPY FOR DAVITADZE
DAVIT Davitadze may be among the most maligned players in the FNQ Premier League, but he’s found a home at Edge Hill United.
Davitadze has bounced between a few clubs in recent years, and spent much of last season in reserve grade at Stratford.
But a move to Tiger Park has helped the attacking midfielder or
winger find a new lease on his football life – and player-coach Crios O’Hare could not be happier he arrived at Edge Hill United, despite what others in the football community had to say of the man.
It’s not just what he does on the field which has impressed, but it’s his impact on the entire playing group away from the pitch.
And for that reason, O’Hare could not be happier Davitadze was the
man to break the deadlock in extra time of their history-making Crad Evans Shield triumph.
“He’s a guy I’d liked for a few years,” O’Hare said.
“He came to the club and I was getting warnings from everybody – players, members of the club, saying ‘be careful of this guy’. But since coming in, he’s been unbelievable.
“Not just the way he plays, but as a squad member. He’s the most positive, happy guy you could have around the team, and he was such a great addition.
“I’m buzzing that he got his goal because quite often he’s the scapegoat because of the way he plays. He loves to dribble, and he loses the ball, and sometimes he can lose it a little bit, but I’ve loved working with him this season and I’m buzzing he scored such a big goal for us. I’m so glad he came to the club.”
