Kingz F.C. new signings for the 2001/2002 season

Monday, 9 July 2001

Kingz F.C. are pleased to announce the first of our new signings for the 2001/2002 season to join the five players (Levent Osman, Sean Douglas, Che Bunce, Jonathan Perry, and Harry Ngata) already under contract.

The new signings are:

Paul Urlovic: Re-signed and an important member of our attack.

Andy Vlahos: Top striker signed from the Greek Club Panathinaikos F.C. (on loan last season with South Melbourne.)

Con Boutsianis: Not only one of the best players in the league but arguably the best dead ball specialist.

Gerard Davis: Re-signed after a successful inaugural season with the Kingz and one of New Zealand’s top prospects.

After two solid seasons in the Australian National Soccer League the Kingz are looking to go to another level and the above signings will help our organisation have an even more competitive team.
More signings will be announced over the coming weeks before pre-season training commences on the 1st August 2001.

Con Boutsianis and Andy Vlahos have commented:

“We are very happy to have signed with the Football Kingz. We have been in Auckland last week and have seen the potential of this club. We can’t help but say it will be the best club in years to come. Professional in every sense and for us has an amazing Football operation. This team will be a wonderful advertisement not only for Auckland but the whole of New Zealand. It’s exciting times for everyone involved and whoever wants to see good football must come and see this team of the future. Look forward to seeing and meeting everyone soon.”
