The Altona City Soccer Club committee announces the appointment of Savas Saglam as our Director of Football and Vinnie Campelj as our Junior Technical Director commencing season 2020.

Savas Saglam – Director of Football (AFC A Licence)

Savas has an extensive history and experience with football. He has played NSL with Brunswick Juventus and played with the Turkish and European giant Galatasaray.

But where his real experience comes to life is his previous coaching and technical director roles. Savas has held senior coaching positions at NPLV Clubs – Hume City, Richmond,
Dandenong Thunder, Ballarat as well as Melton Redsox, Fawkner Blues, Southern Stars and Essendon Royals in the VPL.

He has previously been Technical Director at Whittlesea Ranges and Richmond SC in the NPL.

Savas is highly respected in the Football Community and we look forward to him commencing his role as Director of Football. He will be a support for the entire Senior Coaching Team and work closely with the Junior TD Vinnie Campelj. This gives the Committee a direct conduit to the entire Football Department.

Vinnie Campelj – Junior Technical Director (Current C Licence transitioning to B Licence in 2020)

Vinnie is committed to the FFA National Curriculum and instilling a great culture at Altona City SC for all players and parents.

Vinnie is passionate about coaching and believes in the development of all Altona City junior players. He will be well supported by Savas Saglam throughout the 2020 season. We look forward to him working alongside all Altona City junior coaches and starting his new role as Junior Technical Director.
