White Eagles thirsty for success

26.02.2017

PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Mens powerhouse Bonnyrigg White Eagles are back in 2017 determined to fight back from their heartbreaking preliminary final defeat last season.

Players were left thinking what could've been after Brian Brown’s side fought back from a horror start to the season. While they are focused on hitting the ground running from round one, the White Eagles will enter this season already battling an injury crisis at the club with Milan Susak, Ben Spruce and James Chronopoulous all featuring on the injured list.

Brown has promised a tougher Bonnyrigg team this season, and if they can hold out until their stars are healthy, 2017 could be the White Eagles’ year.

The Coach

Brian Brown - The man known as ‘Bomber’ is regarded by many as the gold standard of coaching in the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW Mens competition.

Entering his ninth season in charge of the White Eagles, Brown is determined to rediscover the consistency which has led his side to silverware in five of the past seven seasons.

Objectives

Bonnyrigg has all eyes on the PlayStation®4 National Premier Leagues NSW title. After a lean season in 2016, the White Eagles are determined to fight their way back to the top of the pile.

Consistent results have been the mantra from Brian Brown and Bonnyrigg is expected to once again be one of the main contenders this season.

Player To Watch

Ray Miller - Bonnyrigg will rely on Miller to pull the strings in midfield once again this season.

A slick passer of the ball and creator from the centre of the park, Miller has made the central midfield position his own.

Miller played a major role in Bonnyrigg's second half turnaround last season and will once again be the man leading the charge in 2017.

Rising Star

Stevan Savicic - 2017 could be a breakout year for Bonnyrigg’s 19-year-old shot stopper.

Savicic will take the mantle of starting goalkeeper for the opening rounds of the season from James Chronopolous who is still recovering from a broken leg. What Savicic lacks in experience, he makes up for in raw talent.

With the support of experienced coaches Brian Brown and Jose Bello Amigo, Savicic is expected to continue his rapid development as a goalkeeper and make his mark as a starting player in this league.

Coaches Comments

“This year the old Bonnyrigg is back. In recent seasons, we have probably given away points at home more often than we should. It will be a different story this season and our players are going to make coming to play against Bonnyrigg one of the toughest away matches in the league.” -  Bonnyrigg coach Brian Brown
