Andreas Solomou, 16.

Your greatest achievement?

This year our indoor soccer team won the Under 17 indoor soccer league and I received a trophy. We were mucking around and I didn’t think that we’d actually win.

How did you get to where you are now?

I grew up around Bentleigh Greens (soccer team). My brother used to play for them and I started playing last year. My friend then asked me to join an indoor soccer team this year and I thought why not, it’ll keep me fit.

Your greatest challenge?

Finishing school.

Goal(s) for the future?

To get my driver’s licence.

Best moment of my life?

When I went to Cyprus and saw my mum’s and dad’s house which was on the Turkish side.
