Player Bios:

Christian Andrieri 18
I come from a footballing family, dad & uncle both played football (they still have a knock about)
Footballs always been my passion since the day I kicked a ball.
Started my football journey playing, juniors for Clayton SC then spending time with South Melbourne, Bentleigh Greens, East Bentleigh and Eastern Lions.

Reasons for joining:
Not enjoying my football at my previous club.
Mazenod United looked like to be a positive move for many reasons, now and for the future.
Hoping to break into the senior squad and get a run with the boys.
Coming back to familiar surroundings as I am Old boy of Mazenod College along with Cooper and James. The three of us have had success together in the past with Mazenod.
Keen to link up with the boys again on the park before the end of the season.

James Beninati 19
Clubs; Clayton 6-9
Monash 9-10
South Melbourne 10-14
Richmond 14-19
My years at Richmond were my most successful winning various titles with them including being crowned the winners of the 2016 U20 NPL champion’s last year. It was also very rewarding playing not only my junior years there but also being a part of the senior team this year.

Reasons for moving across; Attending school at Mazenod for my high-schooling life I was exposed to the upbringing of the club from Mazenod United’s first days and knew one day, I would return to be able to give back for everything they provided me and that came a reality much sooner than I thought with Stefan getting in contact with me at a time where I was looking to play regular senior football. With Mazenod looking to be promoted into State 1 and players being injured I felt like this was a perfect opportunity for both parties in me trying to help them get promoted and also to gain the experience at a senior level that I desired.

Cooper Legrand 19
I grew up in a mostly Volleyball Family, being the last for 4. I took on Football due to my Grandpa’s influence and have been playing since I was 6, it been my passion ever since.
Dad is the Senior coach of the Mazenod Volleyball team and my brother Denzel plays for them.

I saw an opportunity to be able to play senior football, I had a relationship with some the boy already playing.
I wanted the chance to help the club get promoted again, that would be an unreal experience
When I went to training for the first time I got great vibes and wanted to be apart of it.
Being an Old boy of Mazenod the opportunity top play for the Nodders again was exciting, I am really looking forward the remainder of the season.

 

Anthony Hammer 30
In the last 10 years I was at diamond valley for 8 of them and became captain of the club for a short period. Moved to Doncaster and now Mazenod United. Mazenod play a good brand of football and have a good bunch of lads at the club. Looking forward to hopefully getting some wins on the board and pushing the club higher through the divisions.
