Blacktown City continue to be one of the NPL NSW Men’s powerhouse clubs following the news that five Socceroos squad members including Mathew Ryan, Aaron Mooy, Mitchell Duke, Milos Degenek and Keanu Baccus will all be gearing up to take part in the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup in Qatar kicking off next week. 

The football factory at Seven Hills continues to roll out the big guns as the five stars mentioned all came through the City gates at certain stages of their careers as club juniors.

“We are extremely proud of this achievement,” said Blacktown City Executive Chairman Bob Turner.

“Along with the five players mentioned, you can also add in Socceroos goalkeeper coach John Crawley and the influence on the Socceroos from a Blacktown City perspective is enormous.

“I do not believe there would be another semi-professional club in the world at this very moment that helped contribute to 20% of a National team make-up.”

Set to celebrate 70 years of football existence in 2023, there is much to be excited about at Blacktown City who hope to see more success stories continue from its Seven Hills precinct.

Huge credit for this success goes to current 1st grade head coach Mark Crittenden who has overseen many of these up and coming youngsters during his tenure at the club.
