AT his peak, Adam Foti was a top class striker, playing abroad professionally in Greece and Cyprus.
Now 34, his talent still remains, although like many his age can attest to, his body is starting to show signs of slowing down.
After Narrabeen won the MWFA Premier League and the NSW Champions of Champions titles in 2016, Foti could have hung up his boots.
A love of the game saw the marksman remain loyal – and although the past couple of years results wise haven’t gone according to plan, Foti is happy he hung around.
“I’m very close with our club president (Michael Bosschieter) and our coach (Ross Talarico) is one of my best mates,”he said.
“The young boys are good footballers, they just need to believe in themselves a bit more.
“Some days I get a little frustrated on the pitch, but then I think to myself the young guys are 12 years younger than me.”
Away from football, Foti runs a successful cafe in Freshwater and is getting married at the end of the year.
When it comes to next season lacing his boots, Foti remains undecided.
“If I’m still enjoying it, why not,” he said.
“I’m sure over the next few years, if we form a strong team with some familiar faces, I’ll have a run somewhere in the over 35s.
“I will always love the game.”
