MACARTHUR FC have secured the signature of one of Australian football’s most experienced coaches with Anthony Crea joining the club as Head of High Performance.
Anthony played a central role in delivering a swag of silverware during his spell with Melbourne Victory and has worked with some of the Australian game’s biggest names including Harry Kewell, Mark Schwarzer, John Aloisi, Tim Cahill, just to name a few.
Born and bred in Liverpool, Anthony understands the community as well as anyone and the long-standing appetite for a team to call their own.
“When you do your job, you do it to the best of your ability. But I think when it becomes local, it becomes personal. You always invest a little bit more and it hits the heart a little bit differently,” Anthony said.
Since starting his career in 1997 at Marconi Soccer Club, Anthony has been part of some of Australian football’s most memorable moments, including the 2004 Olympics and the unforgettable 2006 FIFA World Cup campaign that saw Australia reach the finals for the first time in 30 years.
