Proud to announce another Granville district player has made it to the A-League. Alusine Fofanah, an ex Lidcombe Waratah player started the game for West Sydney Wanderers last weekend.
Alusine was a key member of the 13/1s of 2010, playing and terrorising from the left forward position. He graduated to Premier youth level and was joined by another 3 or 4 players from that same team.
You may remember that classic threads and banter between the establishment first division teams, and the new Lidcombe upstarts that came from 3rd division. Many of the experts at the time spewed continual tirades about the importance of development. The lectures and brow beating were a phenomenon to behold.
Funny how things turn out in the long run. These experts remind me of a childless couple offering their opinions on how others should raise their kids.
Anyway . . . it's great to see another of our youngsters making his way ahead. Congratulations from a proud old coach.
