TALK about a cracking introduction to the MWFA Premier League.
Sheldon Tweedie is currently the name on many people’slips after an outstanding few games with Wakehurst.
The 20-year-old, who is a Manly United junior and budding football coach, has netted hat-tricks in recent weeks against Manly Vale and St Augustine’s.
Tweedie has also been surprised by the high standard of the competition.
“I heard good things from a few people, but after playing myself, it is definitely better than I expected,” he said.
“Some very good players are spread across different teams, I can see why it is so evenly matched.
“My aim is to keep working hard for Wakehurst, get as many games as possible under my belt and hopefully keep scoring goals.”
Tweedie arrived at Lionel Watts by chance in early May.
Previously he spent eight months training in England and Spain, including a stint with Crawley Town’s under-23s, before returning home.
“A family friend knew Jurgo (coach Paul Juergens), so I decided to go up there and try my luck,” he said.
“It is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, the playing group are great,they area terrific bunch of blokes.”
When Tweedie isn’t finding the back of the net wearing orange and black, you will find him coaching emerging junior footballers across Sydney.
