PlayStation®4 announce 24 players given opportunity to trial with Sydney FC

September 15th, 2016

PlayStation®4 (PS4™) has today announced the 24 footballers who will compete for the opportunity to win a two-week trial with Sydney FC’s Youth League team and realise their football aspirations. The opportunity comes as part of the PS4 Player Pathway Award, a season-long search to find the most talented young footballer in the country.

Throughout the PS4 National Premier League (PS4 NPL) 2016 Season, coaches from every PS4 NPL club around the country voted on who they believed to be the top three footballers in their respective Member Federation. Voting was made in accordance with a set of predetermined criteria to ensure that those players selected are those that have not recently been recognised under the traditional pathway.

The 24 players invited to attend the PS4 Player Pathway Award Camp are as follows:

Ayden Brice Northern NSW Edgeworth Eagles FC 20 Centre Back
Lachlan Pasquale Northern NSW Edgeworth Eagles FC 19 Central Midfielder

The PS4 Player Pathway Award Camp will be held from 26-28 September 2016 at Valentine Sports Park. The 24 selected players will be put through their paces through a series of on-field and off-field testing, whilst under the watchful eye of one of the most decorated selection panels in Australian football. Keeping a watchful eye over all of the players, as well as selecting the ultimate winner, will be a judging panel comprised of:

  • Former Socceroo and current Socceroos Assistant Coach – Ante Milicic
  • Former Socceroo and Hyundai A-League coach, and PS4 NPL Ambassador – John Kosmina
  • Sydney FC Youth League Head Coach – Rob Stanton
  • Former Socceroo, Chief Analyst for The World Game on SBS and Chairman of the PFA – Craig Foster

The winner of the inaugural PS4 Player Pathway Award will win a two-week trial with Sydney FC’s Youth League team, where, if selected, will be presented with the opportunity to be signed onto the team. All coaches and scouts from each Hyundai A-League club will be invited to attend the PS4 Player Pathway Award Camp.
