Scotts Head Sharks in open waters

May 25th, 2021

The small but resilient Scotts Head Sharks Club on the southern periphery of the North Coast Football zone hit way above their weight.
For proof of that look no further than the fact that four of their rising talent from the seaside village club have made their way into North Coast NPL squads this season.
That would be a significant achievement from a big club – and it’s astonishing for one the size of the Sharks.
Urukhai Vallance and Kasey Lawson are turning out for the North Coast 13s, Gypsy Presser-King for the 14s and Liam Azzopardi is with the 16s.
While that has left a hole in the Scotts Head junior ranks – it is a massive credit to the coaches and development systems in place at the Sharks that they have had so many be successful in making the representative sides.
Gypsy came to football ‘late’ as a 10/11-year-old – but has quickly made his mark as a creative and hard working striker for the NPL 14s.
“I’m enjoying the experience (with North Coast) – it’s more intense and taken more seriously,” he said.
And in Urukhai, Liam and Kasey – there’s some familiar faces about the park even though the squads train separately.
“Some times we verse each other in games at training,” Gypsy said.
The powerful young striker also has high long term sights set on the world game experience.
“I want to play somewhere in Japan for a small club and then hopefully move up to the Premier League (EPL) or La Liga,” Gypsy said.
