I am proud to be participating inThe Celebrity Football Charity Challenge, a “pro-am” style fundraising match at Hensley Athletic Field, Eastgardens, to be played on 6 September ahead of the Eastern Suburbs’ men’s senior first division Grand Final. A slew of stars will join forces to kick a goal in the fight against epilepsy.
Supported by both Eastern Suburbs Football Association (ESFA) and Sydney FC, the match will combine celebrity players with sponsored amateurs – all raising funds for the cause.
Please donate now for this fantastic cause!
Former Australian international, Steve Corica, began his professional career in 1990 for the Marconi Stallions in the National Soccer League. After 5 years in Australia, the attacking midfielder pursued a career in Europe, signing with Leicester City in the English First Division.
Corica made the move to Wolverhampton Wanderers after only 1 year at Leicester City, spending 4 years at the ‘Wolves’, amassing a total of 100 league appearances. Short stints at Sanfrecce Hiroshima and Walsall, paved the way for the midfielder to return home and sign for Sydney FC in 2005.
Corica, capped 32 times for the Socceroos, spent 5 years at Sydney FC, making 106 league appearances, and scoring 23 goals. Retiring in 2010 due to injury, Corica called an end to his 20-year career. After a successful playing career, the ex-Socceroo looks to have set his sights on management. Notably being appointed as caretaker manager of Sydney FC for a short spell in 2012, Corica is the current Sydney FC youth coach.
