Armadale imports settling in well at the Skeet.
Playing football in another country is something many players don’t get the opportunity to do, but Armadale new imports Tim Berger and Conor Walsh will have that opportunity this season, after the pair joined the club for the 2023 NPLM WA season.
Berger, who has signed from German club FC Kingsfeld, made the move to Australia last year for work, but after a trial at the club he returned this year and he jumped at the chance to join. “I have settled in super in Perth and the club has also accepted me immediately, everyone is very friendly and gives me the feeling that I have made the right decision,” the midfielder said. “I’m a young player, who is very ambitious and brings experience from Europe,” he said. “I’m very flexible and will give everything to bring the team forward, and I can’t wait for the season to start next week.”
Walsh grew up playing in Ireland for Cobh Ramblers FC in the League of Ireland, also College Corinthians and Cobh Wanderers. He played in a full time FAI Academy just after school, and also played for IT Carlow while he was in college in Ireland. He then moved to America on a D1 scholarship and played a semester out in California in the Big West Conference, before heading to WA in February.O’Reilly said the defender is a great pick. “Conor comes with a youth background in Ireland, which has given him a good platform for his game to be built on,” he said. “He’s confident on the ball strong in the air, has a physical presence and a calming influence at the back, were delighted to have secured his services this season.”
The 22-year-old said he’s looking forward to playing, and helping he club to the title. “I’ve been able to use football as a path to travel the world and play at a high level on three continents, playing with loads of different players from all corners of the globe,” Walsh explained. “I want to help the club to win the league and to finish the season in top spot, where we know we should be.”
The 21-year-old, who played all his youth football for the DFB selection in Germany, will give the side a huge boost, and he hopes to repay the faith the club have shown in him. “Both players have settled in well and it’s great to have them here,” Head Coach John O’Reilly said. “Tim played his football in Germany, and established himself in the first team at a young age and was a regular at FC Kingsfeld. We are delighted he came to Australia to ply his trade, and he is a classy midfielder, holds on to the ball well and has good vision when passing, a great attribute to have in our league.”
Irish-born Walsh, who joined the club from college football in America, said Perth life is suiting him, and he has fitted in really well at the club. “I’ve settled in very well, all the boys on the team, in the club, and at the G bar have really helped me settle in well and made me feel right at home,” the defender explained. “I’m loving Perth, it’s a beautiful place, I’ve been down to a few beaches too, so definitely settled in well. I was playing D1 college soccer in America last year, when I decided I’d look at coming out this end of the world and give it a go, so I got in contact with John and straight away decided that I’d make the move, glad I did.”
NEW ARMADALE LIFE MEMBERS
Armadale reward two loyal supporters with life membership !
They say without supporters’ football would be nothing, and at Armadale we are lucky in that department, having the best supporters in the league, and last week the club honoured two of their most loyal fans with life membership.
Prior to our first home game of the season, new club President Chris Bates presented the life membership medals to Scott Sainsbury and Mark ‘Willie’ Wilkinson. The pair attend all Armadale games, home and away, and the president said their life membership is well deserved and well overdue. “The club can’t survive without fans, and Scott and Mark are a big part of the Army Boys, along with the rest of the supporters on the balcony,” he said. “They are a huge part of this club, and this life membership is our thanks to them for their support over the years, its well deserved.”
Sainsbury, who has also played, and coached the club first team in the State League in 1999 and 2000, said it was huge surprise. “I didn’t have a clue it was going to happen,” he said. “I’ve only been there since the first game at Alfred Skeet, and loved every minute.”
We asked Scotty for his favourite memory at the club, and he said they had been a few. “It’s been 39 years and there has been a number of memorable games, but they have all been great, its great day out but,” he explained. “But I’d say the trip to Caines in the FFA Cup, good fun and lots of singing.”
Wilkinson also played for the club, and said the life membership of the club is huge. “It’s one of the biggest honours I’ve ever received,” he said. “It’s only second to my beautiful family.” He said a memory he can remember was back in his playing days, on a cold night at Wotton Reserve. “We were playing Morley Windmills in a night cup game, winning with not long to go,” he explained. “Then they turned the sprinklers on, and we had guys standing on them till we needed them to run to keep the game going, which we managed and won, a great night.”
From everyone at the club thanks to you both for your supporter over the years, it is much appreciated.
