Grozos: To play for the club is unbelievable

Kingsgrove local Kosta Grozos has been making waves in the Wanderers Academy and now has his sights set on getting some valuable game time with the first team. 

Grozos' breakout season came in his second year at the Wanderers Academy in their NPL 2 side and despite picking up an injury, the talented youngster scored 11 goals in 13 games and was voted the club's NPL Player of the Year.

Looking back on his development, Grozos credits the friendship and belief his fellow teammates have had in him to get the job done when he eventually returned to the park. 

"You think of a lot of things when you're injured, should you be doing this and should you be doing that," said Grozos. 

"But you've just got to stay strong, think positive all the time and you've got your mates helping you as well.

"Then being injured for a while and the players still voting for you to be NPL Player of the Year.

"I just scored as many times as I could and helped the team."


Grozos made his debut for the first team in their FFA Cup Round of 16 fixture against Hellenic AC and is humbled by the opportunity to represent the Red & Black. 

"My goal this season is to sit on the bench a few times for the team and hopefully play a few minutes here and there and maybe, if I can, get on the scoresheet.

"When I was younger I always had the ball at my feet. Dad and Mum obviously played soccer as well, so they've gotten me to play and they got my brother playing. 

"I used to watch Western Sydney and just to play for them is incredible."
