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.
