Best of Shootout: Mark Bosnich and John Kosmina want opportunities for young A-League players

YET another key reason for A-League expansion, Kossie has his say on goalkeepers and the Golden Shinpad nominees.

It’s the Best of Shootout!


FORMER Socceroos John Kosmina and Mark Bosnich say there aren’t enough opportunities for young players to develop in the A-League.

On Saturday night, 16-year-old Dylan Pierias became the A-League’s youngest debutant and impressed with his performance against Brisbane Roar.

BRISBANE Roar’s defensive stocks have taken another untimely blow, with fears “Mr Fix-It” Daniel Bowles has suffered a serious knee injury.

Bowles was in wheelchair on his arrival back in Brisbane after hurting his knee in a foul that earnt him a booking in the dying stages of the Roar’s 2-2 draw with Melbourne City at AAMI Park on Saturday night.

The versatile Bowles, whose ability to play anywhere in the back four is invaluable to the Roar as they embark on their packed A-League/AFC Champions League schedule, will have scans on the injury on Wednesday.

Also having scans will be fullback Jack Hingert, who didn’t play against City after injuring his ankle in the Roar’s 2-0 Champions League playoff win over Shanghai Shenhua in China last Wednesday.

LIKE the great athletes they are, Melbourne City women timed their title run to perfection.

And with a 2-0 grand final win over Perth at nib Stadium, City became the first team in the nine-year history of the W-League to win back-to-back championships.

Player-coach Jess Fishlock landed a hammerblow for the visitors by scoring the opener in first half stoppage time, before Beverly Yanez sealed the win with a cross-cum-shot in the 72nd minute.

As a club, it is City’s third title of the season after the men won the FFA Cup and the boys won the National Youth League last month.
