Former Socceroo announced as Adelaide University inaugural State League coach

Adelaide University Soccer Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Milan Ivanović as inaugural head coach for the AUSC men’s State League 2 team.

Milan’s appointment is quite a coup for the AUSC and will allow us to hit the ground running on our entry to State League 2.

Some of Milan’s career highlights include winning multiple championships with Red Star Belgrade and Adelaide City; and the distinction of having been one of the greatest ever Socceroos. He is also a Football Federation Australia Hall of Fame inductee.

Milan has coached at both local federation and amateur levels including Croydon Kings, West Torrens Birkalla, Enfield City and White City. He has a strong reputation for developing junior players.

Meet Milan

Thursday December 22 @ 6:30pm

The club will be running an introduction session immediately followed by a trial this Thursday December 22, commencing at 6:30pm (registration from 6pm), at the Graduates Clubhouse, McKinnon Parade, North Adelaide.

All existing University players, previous triallists and other interested players are welcome.

We wish to thank those who attended the previous trials for their patience, and hope they understand our delay in selecting players, pending this appointment.
