VPL preview 2009 – Whittlesea Zebras
The final installation of the Victorian Premier League preview for 2009 begins with last year’s 11th placed Whittlesea Zebras.
‘With the smoke from the Kinglake bushfires drifting over Epping Stadium, the Whittlesea Zebras have been training hard ahead of the 2009 Victorian Premier League season.
‘Star playmaker Josip Kozic is returning along with Tex Apostalikis and Marco Santilli, all three being former Zebra Players.
Coach Ivan Jolic says the club will be looking to turn it around this season, “Last year was very disappointing and I took it pretty harsh with the boys. We turned over ten players this year as a result of it. We won’t accept mediocrity and we believe we have bolstered our squad to hopefully eliminate that happening again.”
‘With an impressive mix of youth and experience and under the guidance of the determined Jolic, one can expect the Zebras to be in the mix come finals time.’
