Fajkovic scores praise for loyal return 


September 12, 2019 by admin

SOUTH Cardiff have lauded the loyalty of Dino Fajkovic after the now former Jets Youth speedster rejected richer offers from rival state league clubs to return to the Gunners next season.

Fajkovic, who is now too old for the National Youth League roster, is one of several players the Jets have released since the end of their youth side’s inaugural state league campaign.

The Herald has been told captain Mason Campbell, Andrew Hoole, Kale Bradbery, Michael Finlayson and Luke Remington are among the players retained.

South Cardiff secretary Brad Robb confirmed the signing of Fajkovic and his brother Denis Fajkovic, a former Hamilton and Valentine striker, yesterday.

Robb said Dino had attracted money the Gunners could not match but he had come back to the club that gave him a chance in first grade in 2011.

Fajkovic, who came from Hamilton, was a key player in South Cardiff’s State Cup victory and run to the grand final and was rewarded with a Jets NYL deal.

■ Lake Macquarie have pulled off a double goalkeeping coup, gaining the services of New Zealand national team keeping coach Clint Gosling and promising shot-stopper Nicholas Hartnett.

Gosling, a former Jets keeping coach, played with Roosters coach Chris Turner at Wallsend and has agreed to coach Lake Macquarie’s shot-stoppers. Hartnett, from Belmont Christian College, was this year’s NSW All Schools goalkeeper.

■ Jet Ryan Griffiths will be guest speaker when Wallsend hold their 125th anniversary dinner at Wallsend Diggers on Saturday night.

One of their former Socceroos, Jack O’Brien, will also speak at the function.

Tickets are $65 and include a two-course meal.

■ Hunter Sports High lost 2-1 to Westfields Sports High in the semi-finals of the Bill Turner Trophy girls’ competition at Jack McLaughlan Oval yesterday.
