Sydney United 58 FC have bolstered its player roster for the remainder of the 2014 IGA NPL NSW Mens 1 competition by signing former Sydney FC youngsters Alec Urosevski and Daniel Petkovski as well as recruiting the services of former Australian Youth International Kaz Patafta.
Sydney United Sports Centre will be in full voice as the trio will only further strengthen Mark Rudan’s squad.
The 2013 inaugural NPL Champions have slowly found their feet in the competition but were dealt with injury woes earlier in the season.
20-year-old striker Alec Urosevski will help assist the club’s fortunes in front of goal.
Having played in the IGA NPL NSW Mens 1 competition previously with the Rockdale City Suns, Urosevski will link up with club captain Luka Glavas with Rudan hoping to see the development of a new striking partnership at the Reds. Urosevski spent two seasons with the Sky Blues where he played the majority of his football with the National Youth League squad but made seven appearances for the senior side.
Petkovski has also followed Urosevski from Sydney FC.
The former AIS and Marconi Stallions player also spent a fair bit of time with the Sky Blues Youth League side but did make several appearances for the first grade squad. The left-footed 20-year-old defender was also a former Australian youth international.
Finally, former Benfica as well as Melbourne Victory and Newcastle Jets attacking midfielder Kaz Patafta has also put pen to paper with the Reds.
The 25-year-old was touted as the next big thing in Australian football will no doubt add flair and excitement into what already is a talented young squad.
All three are expected to make their Sydney United 58 FC debuts against the Marconi Stallions this Saturday at the Sydney United Sports Centre with kick off set for 7:30pm.
