A-Leagues prospects to gather in Canberra for Young Socceroos camp

A-Leagues prospects to gather in Canberra for Young Socceroos camp

A star cast of young Isuzu UTE A-League talent highlighted by Garang Kuol, Bernardo and Archie Goodwin is set to congregate in Canberra next week as part of the Young Socceroos talent identification camp.

A squad of 30 of Australia’s best young men’s footballers will join newly-appointed Young Socceroos head coach Trevor Morgan at the Australian Institute of Sport, with Olyroos head coach Tony Vidmar monitoring the camp’s progress with the Australian Under-23 squad in mind. 

Of the 30 players selected for duty, 27 come from clubs around the ALM, with the remaining three summoned from National Premier League clubs (Oakleigh Cannons, Melbourne Knights, Blacktown City). 

Of the ALM product, three will arrive from Adelaide United, three from Brisbane Roar, three from Central Coast Mariners, five from Melbourne City, two from Melbourne Victory, two from Newcastle Jets, five from Perth Glory, three from Western Sydney Wanderers and one from Western United.

Young Adelaide star Bernardo.

Running from Monday, August 8 to Thursday, August 11, the camp will feature a talent identification match on the Wednesday afternoon (3.00pm AEST), which will be streamed live on Football Australia’s My Football Youtube channel.

On top of the 30 players invited, four eligible Olyroos goalkeepers will attend the camp: Cameron Cook (Perth Glory), Noah James (Dandenong Thunder on loan from Newcastle Jets), Adam Pavlesic (Sydney FC), and Ahmad Taleb (Melbourne Victory).

Head coach Morgan has urged coaches and fans to tune into Wednesday’s training game to see some of Australia’s best up-and-coming men’s footballers go toe to toe.

“I can’t wait to begin working with the players and staff in Canberra next week,” Morgan said. “This camp will provide some of our best young, domestically-based players with the opportunity to showcase themselves against their peers in a high-performance environment.”

“We encourage coaches and fans both at home and abroad to tune into Wednesday’s live streamed training match. We held a similar initiative in Townsville earlier this year as part of an under 16’s talent identification camp, which was viewed by thousands who took the opportunity to see some of Australia’s leading youth footballers testing themselves against players in their own age group.”
