Club Legend Appointed Technical Director

Former player, and club legend, Serge Melta, has been appointed Technical Director of Adelaide City Football Club.  The appointment comes at a time when the club is looking to advance and progress in all areas, none less so than player and coach development. “This is a very important role for the club,” stated Football Committee Chairman, Alf Iannello. “The time is right for Adelaide City to invest and make a serious commitment to the future of its players and coaches. Our club is fortunate to have secured the services of such a highly accredited coach and club legend to oversee player development and the ongoing improvement of our coaches,” he added.

Having played 22 years at City, his entire senior career, Melta was a key figure in the successes of the time, being described as a dynamic midfielder with a superb work ethic. Achievements included three National Championships, two Cup victories – one of those as captain, and NSL player of the year in 1986. In all, Melta played in excess of 500 games for the club, 445 league games and some 65 cup matches, as well as being capped for the Socceroos before his playing retirement in 1996. The winner of the FFSA‘s Player Of The Year is awarded the Sergio Melta Medal in tribute to Melta’s contribution to football in South Australia. He is honoured in both the FFA and FFSA Hall of Fame. “It was a great period of my life, living the highs and lows of the club, and being part of some great victories and championships,” he said.

After his playing career, Melta set himself on the coaching path, working as assistant to the late Martin Crook at the South Australian Sports Institute before returning to Adelaide City Football Club managing the Youth Team.  Wanting to develop his coaching skills to a higher level, he travelled to Europe and over a two-year period gained his UEFA A coaching licence, being one of just a handful of Australians to attain the distinction. Upon his return he coached at a number of clubs including the youth program, and as assistant senior coach, at Adelaide United.

This year however, Melta became aware of developments at Adelaide City. “The direction the club was taking really appealed to me,” he said. “It is now one club, with everyone on the same page and working together.  The clear direction, single unified entity, is a big advantage, and I felt Adelaide City was a club that could really achieve. I wanted to be part of it again and make a contribution where I could. As Technical Director, I hope to be able to help produce good players and a good culture of coaches — with every team having a qualified coach.  Accreditation for all coaches from the under 6 to under 18 level is very important. I am really looking forward to the challenge.”

Melta will commence in the role immediately.
