The executive committee of Altona City Soccer Club advises that after four years Darron Cox will be leaving ACSC.

 

Darron started at ACSC as the U18’s Coach in 2018.  Under Darron’s leadership, the team became a formidable outfit and won the U18 league without losing a game in 2019. An impressive reusult!
