A word from the Coach.....
U10 Eros is a team of fun and enthusiastic youngsters who love to play football. Many of the team are new to the Club this year, so it is going to be a busy few weeks getting to know one another and learning to play as a team.
The kids are always keen to get to training and kick a ball around which is great to see. They also are interested in watching the first team games, being ball boys and meeting the players. Who knows, we may have a few future Olympic first team stars in our team!
Coached by Olympic Reserves Goalkeeper and Captain, Chris Kotrotsos, the season is shaping up to be a goodie!

Four weeks into the season and the U10 Eros are off to a flying start in the Wellington Red grade.
5 Wins, 1 Draw, 2 Losses.
Highlights have definitely been Jack Spite and co scoring heaps of goals, as well as some valiant performances between the sticks from Cody, Koben and Julian (not biased because the coach is a goalkeeper).
A list of this season’s goal scorers and players of the day are recorded under the weekly results (thanks Tim). I hope you have cashed in on the Fresko nuggets and chips already, they’re the best in the Eastern suburbs!
A few thank you’s are definitely due on behalf of me.
Firstly to Johnny Marshall, who is always keen to help out. He’s the man.
Secondly to co-coach Leo Gunn for recently putting his hand up to take the team while I go away. Leo is a skilful ball player who plays for our Olympic Reserves (Capital Premier) with me. Learning from Paul Ifill for years in the sunny Wairarapa, Leo has a high football IQ and will be an asset for the kids to learn off.
Lastly, thanks to all the parents that bring the kids to training every day - they appreciate it and so do I!
Shout out to all the players in the team for coming out the gates hot! I can already tell it’s going to be a fun season as we keep learning to play together and winning games!
Interesting last few weeks with a couple of second games called off due to worsening weather and no shows, with one game last weekend turning into parents vs kids, which was heaps of fun and a good laugh.
With the games we have played recently, the Olympic Eros have continued to improve our passing game, team work, general game awareness and skills, with almost the whole team now on the score sheet.
Coach Chris (Tofa) has jetted off on a European recruitment drive/holiday, so the kids are on watch to step up, before the next big U10 find in Europe jets in to shake things up (pending transfer fund sausage sizzles and visa clearance).
Looking forward to the next few weeks and hoping for a good run of games, as the boys look to close out the season with some good momentum, development and team work.
