    Highlight:
    Description: Aspro as he has come to be called, is a young and improving ball playing central defender. After making sporadic appearances in the first two seasons at the Wanderers, he came of age in the 2016/17 season, being called upon as the #1 central defender over the vastly experienced Robbie Cornthwaite & foreign player Aritz Borda. Unfortunately for young Aspro, a severe knee injury he picked up during the Wanderers successful National Youth League Grand Final saw his 2017/18 season cut short, and perhaps lead to his release from the Wanderers on 14.5.2018.

My bean counter says that he is still only 17. Sweet Jesus. Makes the performance yesterday even more remarkable.

Imagine if he scores a goal in the near future at wanderland, I'd like to see if the vast majority can pronounce his name.. My guess is it might go something like this
Announcer: JONATHANNNNN
CROWD: AHIPPOPOTAMUSSSS!!..

Lame joke..

Exits page stage left.

I see someone is born 1997 and I think to myself is it even legal to employ these kids…then it dawns on me time has actually moved on and good ol' Johnno is nearly an adult. Good luck mate, hope you follow Theo's footsteps and shorten your last name.

He has to make sure none of the beer lands in his mouth when we score a goal.

The only appropriate song I can think of is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

According to Popa, young Jonathan was discovered by Ian Crook, and brought into the club on Crook's recommendation.

One of my Greek workmates, knows Aspro & his family, and was excited to tell ne that he knew someone that started for the WSW on the weekend's match!

 

Aspro went to school in Newington, and yeah, Ian Crook's known him since those days. He's still only 17 - so looking forward to seeing what he can do!

Spoke with Jonathan on Friday (he was doing a session with the rest of the boys left out of the squad for fridays game on the training field next to the weekly clinic my kids attend). Well spoken, plenty of time for the kids, seemed stoked to be playing with the guys he was with.

Actually his name scans into that pretty well

How do you even recognise someone you've seen only once? Unless you've known this kid from before it would be pretty hard to recognise him. If he came up to me and he said he played for WSW I'll probably tell him to piss off and stop lying, I'm a fan and I've never seen his face. I remember for Christmas I was at Stanwell Park and Kuzi was there, but unless one of my cousins told me who he was I would've never recognised him as a player for my team. Maybe I'm just bad with faces though!

He'd only played in front of me on wednesday, and I payed particular attention to him as I had never heard of him before. I thought he was impressive. Then 2 days later he was running around on the park with Tomi, Ruka, Yojiro, gol gol, Marty Lo and 3 others (who i didn't recognise) being coached by Ian Crook and Hayden Foxe + the fitness coach and 1 or two others in official WSW gear was a hint he was a player. Plus at the end of the clinic he came over and got introduced to the kids. 

 

I'm pretty confident i'd recognise anyone who has played for our first team at wanderland. But we sit just down from the bench, they warm up right in front of us in bay 49 and they wear names on their shirts and high 5 my kids at the end of the game. All these factors add up to being recognisable by me.
