As a reward for winning the club's first trophy since 2012, and having his team well placed for the semi-finals, the board of Club Marconi has extended the contract of coach Peter Tsekenis by three years.
Marconi Stallions FC recently won the Waratah Cup, beating their archrivals and neighbours Sydney United 2-1 in the final to secure the trophy and $16,500 in prize money.
Tsekenis has his team "timing their run" perfectly, as they went five games straight unbeaten in the NPL until dropping 0-1 to the Wollongong Wolves this past weekend.
The former defender turned coach has been with the club since 2017 and had previously taken the Stallions back to NPL 1 from NPL 2.
Tsekenis enjoyed a highly successful career initially as a player, representing Australia at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Prior to joining the Stallions, he coached at Bankstown City Lions and Sydney Olympic.
Former Sydney United 58FC SAP Coach Pat Marando has made the short drive down Cowpasture Road to become the new Technical Director at Marconi Stallions FC.
Pat Marando replaces Nahuel Arrarte who left the Stallions earlier this season.
Marando's reputation as a Coach and Educator is unsurpassed and he brings much experience to his new role at one of his former clubs where he played and coached.
