Greek Community Cup Melbourne

The Greek Community Cup has completed all of its round-robin games, bar one between Bentleigh Cobras and Kingston City FC, which upon completion next Wednesday night, will determine the final quarter-finalists for this coming weekend.

In another scintillating weekend of Cup football, four matches were played last Saturday at Mill Park FC, with some thrilling outcomes.
Firstly, South Melbourne Hellas defeated East Kew 3 0, thus qualifying in first place in Group one, setting up a quarter-final clash with archrival Heidelberg FC, who finished second in group 2, next weekend. West Preston defeated Malvern City 2 0, and as a result, West Preston tops group 2 and sets up a quarter-final clash against East Kew, who finished second in group one.

The other two quarter-finals still await the outcome between Bentleigh Cobras v Kingston FC. Both Oakleigh Cannons and Mill Park have qualified, with Oakleigh defeating Doncaster Rovers 5 0 last Saturday and Box Hill defeating Kingston FC 3 2 in the last four matches.

Oakleigh Chairman, Kon Kavalakis, was full of praise for the tournament. “Having grown up playing the game from a very young age, I used to look forward to the Hellenic Cup back in the day.

This tournament brings back all the special memories I had growing up playing the game I loved. I commend the Greek Community for this beautiful initiative allowing our kids, from the next generation, to have the opportunity to experience what we did and still cherish to this day “.
Kingston FC coach Kon Tangalakis couldn’t speak highly enough about the tournament.

“Having been involved in the All Nations Cup and experiencing the euphoria after winning the tournament with Greece, I can honestly say that it was one of the highlights and special moments that I will always cherish in my involvement in the game.

This tournament allows Greek Teams to also participate in a competition amongst one another that brings friends together that may not necessarily cross paths throughout the season and is a wonderful opportunity to mingle and network amongst our community. Congratulations to the Greek Community, and looking forward to the remainder of the tournament”.

Michael Karamitos, GCM Vice President, shared his enthusiasm “can’t wait for the next round of matches. The stage is now set for the quarter-finals, with some mouth-watering matches to be played, and I encourage all football lovers to come and support what has been a wonderful event thus far”.
