20 YEAR OLD AUSTRALIAN JOINS TEAM OF CHOICE
 
 
 
Maritzburg United has made another signing as they continue to beef up the squad ahead of the new season.
   
 

20-year-old Liam Youlley is a former player of the A-League team Western Sydney Wanderers, who won the 2014 Asian Championships, and had a short stint with Sydney Olympic before moving to The City of Choice, Pietermaritzburg.

 

In 2016, he was member of the Australian U/20 National Team in the Asian Championships and was named Australia's best player.

 

Liam considers South Africa to be his homeland as his roots are South African.

 

"Both my parents were born and grew up in South Africa. My mother was born in Woodlands, Pietermaritzburg, and my dad in Johannesburg," said Youlley, who plays as a holding midfielder, but can play the attacking role as well.

 

When asked how much he knows about the club and South African football, he replied saying "I don't know much about the club and the South African League. It's all new to me, there's a lot to learn."

 

Liam had his first training session with the team this morning. "It's a good team. They're a nice bunch of players and they welcomed me well. I enjoyed my first training session and they made it easy for me," remarked Liam.

 

He had a message to the fans saying "I'm here to show them what I can do and I hope they will enjoy what I can do on the field," he concluded.
