Adelaide City Socceroos

Adelaide City Socceroos

Adelaide City FC is delighted to host the South Australian launch of Andrew Howe’s comprehensive publication, the Encyclopaedia of the Socceroos, on the evening of Wednesday 6 June 2018 at B. Social.

Andrew, recognised as Australia’s foremost football statistician, has listed 48 Socceroos from Adelaide City, putting the club all time 3rd behind South Melbourne and Marconi in providing national team players.

This is an Encyclopedia more than 25 years in the making by statistician Andrew Howe, who has meticulously gathered and maintained records of every match played by every man selected for the Socceroos.

It gives the cap number of every player, the number of games played, goals scored, match listing and a biography of each player, as well as detailed records in appendices.

There is also a special biographical profile on each of Australia’s World Cup captains written by longstanding journalist for The Australian newspaper, Ray Gatt. The Foreword is provided by FOX Sports’ Andy Harper.

The Encyclopedia of Socceroos is set-out in an easy-to-follow structure. It is a ‘must have’ guide for any fan of the game and is a wonderful addition to the library of every sports historian.

Andrew Howe has been Australia’s premier football statistician since the 1990s. His stats, facts and historical analyses are relied upon by Football Federation Australia, Professional Footballers

Australia, official broadcaster FOX Sports and all media. He is the author of the annual media guide for the A-League, and is the ‘go-to’ man for official stats and data.
