Two TeleChoice Premier League youngsters at Young Socceroos Camp


Trifiro, originally from the Marconi Stallions, but took out a loan move to the Rams for more matches, has impressed Macarthur coach Paul Carter as has Jurman who has caught the attention of Blues coach Milan Blagojevic.
Apart from the two representing the TeleChoice Premier League in the Young Socceroos, there are a few other familiar names that also played in NSW?s elite competition.
Former Marconi Stallions striker and now Melbourne Victory star Nathan Elasi, ex-Stallions youngster Jason Naidovski and former Sydney Olympic and Penrith Nepean United defender and now Sydney FC player Nikolas Tsattalios have also been included in this current camp.
Newly appointed Qantas Young Socceroos coach Jan Versleijen has selected an 18-man squad to participate in a five day training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in which commenced on Monday.
This will be Jan Versleijen’s first opportunity to work with the Qantas Young Socceroos as they prepare for the Asean Football Federation Championships (5-12 October – Thailand) and the AFC U-19 Championships (31 October – 14 November 2008 – Saudi Arabia).  
“I have spent my first two weeks here talking with many people, getting to know the AIS and the State Institute systems, so I am looking forward to seeing the boys in action on the park.
“I come into the job with a completely open mind about players, so this is a good opportunity for them to press their claims and for me to see how they respond,” said Verslaijen.
Versleijen has an extensive record in football in the Netherlands, Asia and the Middle East having coached at senior and youth levels in clubs such as Venlo, Roda and Go Ahead Eagles in the Netherlands, JEF United in Japan, as well as clubs in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.  He has also held the position of coach of the Dutch U17 and U23 teams.
