PlayStation Australia have announced the winner of the inaugural PS4 Player Pathway Award, Kristian Trajceski of Hume City FC, who is now set to commence a two-week trial with Sydney FC’s youth team.

Having picked 24 of Australia’s best young PS4 National Premier League footballers, a judging panel consisting of ex-Socceroos Ante Milicic, John Kosmina, and Craig Foster, alongside Sydney FC Youth League Head Coach Rob Stanton, watched over the players, who engaged in two days of intense on-field and off-field testing.

The winner, 17-year-old Kristian Trajceski of Victoria’s Hume City FC, will now see himself with an opportunity to launch his pro football career through a two-week trial with Sydney FC’s youth team, commencing in October.

The PS4 Player Pathway Award, which grants Trajceski the opportunity to kickstart his pro career, has been a season-long search to find the most talented young footballers in the country, in turn providing one of them with an opportunity outside of the existing football pathways already in place.
