Anthony and Jonathan PROMO

Rizk and Voulgaris join Northcote

Northcote City are pleased to announce the signings of Anthony Rizk and Jonathan Voulgaris on multi-year contracts.

Rizk, 20, rejoins his junior club after a stint with Melbourne City in the Foxtel National Youth League and the 2015 NPL1 season.

Able to operate at left midfield or left full back, the talented Rizk had no hesitation in linking up with the club again  after the close ties he had developed.


“The decision to come back was through loyalty with Alex (Gymnopoulos),” he said.

“The experience I’ve had here, the silverware I’ve won here, it made sense to come back.”

“My aim and the team’s will be to achieve the highest we can, go as far as we can and see where it takes us.”

23-year-old Voulgaris, who can operate anywhere across the front three, joins after a spell with both Heidelberg United and Clifton Hill in 2015.

Voulgaris was also a Northcote junior and hailed the impact of Gymnopoulos in making his choice.

“I wanted to get back into the NPL. I had a chat with some of the committee members at Northcote and found out the club was changing direction and heading in the right direction,” he said.

“I grew up at Northcote with Alex as the Reserve Coach and being close with him, he taught me a lot and just mentored me. With him being the Senior Coach now it was almost a no-brainer to come back and try to help him out.”

Voulgaris has aims on a personal and team level for the upcoming 2016 season which he hopes will interlink.

“As a winger and striker your role is to assist and score goals so I want to try beat my personal best for goals and set up as many as I can,” he said.

“On a team level I do think this year’s going to be extremely hard with a lot of teams signing quality players but there’s no reason why we can’t finish in the top five or six.”


Rizk and Voulgaris rejoin as pre-season for the senior team gets underway.


Theodoridis departs Northcote City

Long-term goalkeeper and Northcote City stalwart Chris Theodoridis has departed the Club following a brilliant nine-year career at John Cain Memorial Park, as he moves on in search of a new challenge at his boyhood club Heidelberg United.

Still a teenager when he arrived at Northcote, Theodoridis went on to win two State League Championships, a VPL Championship and a Mirabella Cup as well as captaining the side in the 2015 NPL season.

Theodoridis penned a heartfelt message of thanks to all connected with Northcote City Football Club:

I’ve been trying to find the words on how I feel right now and I can’t. I have been apart of Northcote City Hercules for 9 years, won 3 Championships and a Mirabella Cup. Been vice captain and had the privilege to captain this great club this year. I would like to thank you all for the past nine years that we have all had, the highs and the lows. I have made life-long relationships which I will treasure. I have decided that I need a new challenge and fresh environment this year and I am moving on. NCH will forever be close to my heart. Take care and I wish you all the best for next season.

I would firstly like to thank NCH for giving me the opportunity to play at senior level. To all the current and past players, staff, volunteers, and supporters, a big thank you. I have made life-long relationships which I will treasure and NCH will forever be close to my heart.

The Club would like to express its gratitude to Chris for his excellent contributions over the last nine years and wishes him well for the future.
