Balla made his return to the Wollongong FC starting line-up last weekend after injury and his performance gained him selection the TeleChoice Premier League team of the week.
A commanding performance in the centre of midfield had Balla in the middle of most of the Wollongong FC attacking raids.
A thorough professional, Balla?s torturous weekly training regime means he is always in top shape and this allows to perform at this high level even at his slightly more advanced age.
Balla has become a very recognizable face of football in the Illawarra through his many school visits and coaching clinics that he attends.
He is a wonderful ambassador for the club and the code and Wollongong FC hope to see many more performances like this from him.
