Eidevall on 'brave and fearless' youth

Jonas Eidevall

Jonas Eidevall was delighted with the contribution from our academy players in Friday's 1-0 victory over the A League All-Stars. 

Vivienne Lia provided a stunning assist for Alessia Russo, while Katie Reid played the full 90 minutes and picked up the Player of the Match award. Teyah Goldie, Freya Godfrey, Laila Harbert, Maddy Earl and Naomi Williams also featured and duly impressed. 

"It’s been a great experience coming to Melbourne. We’ve had fantastic fan engagement both in the training session yesterday and also at the game today, and I think from a performance perspectiveit was really nice to see a team play that really had a mixture of experience and youth. 

"I think the team as a whole did well, but it’s really really nice to see young players coming on and making such good performances today. They were brave, fearless and qualitative. Big kudus to them but also to the work of our academy and academy manager James Honeyman and under-21 coach Elliot. I think it shows that they’re doing a lot of good things and it showed that the players are ready for the opportunity tonight."
