Sydney Olympic appoint new first grade coach

Sydney Olympic will kick off the 2017 season with a new man in charge after appointing Portuguese born Jamie Monroy Zamith as the First Team coach and Technical Director.

Zamith takes over Grant Lee after three and a half years at the top, who has since been appointed as the club’s Football Director and will take a hands on technical leadership focus with the club’s women’s program and will work closely in other areas with the mindset of enhancing the Blues’ football program.

Zamith comes with some experience overseas having been part of coaching setups at FC Barcelona, A.D. Alcorcon, FC Baku and Boavista to name a few.

The Portuguese mentor has been busily preparing the squad during the pre-season and will hope he can instil that winning mentality back into the club as well as setting the technical philosophy and direction in moving the Blues forward.

Recently appointed Club Chief Executive Officer John Boulous highlighted in his update to the members, a number of key initiatives for the new season as the club looks set for a new and exciting era.

“Having been in the position for just nearly two months, I have had an opportunity to meet with many of our stakeholders and it is great to see much excitement and enthusiasm ahead of the 2017 season. “As a club we have a lot to do in order to achieve our goals, this cannot be done alone and by working together I am confident a very successful 2017 and beyond on and off the field awaits.
