South Melbourne FC announced this week the signing of Dimitri Tsiaras from Richmond Eagles for the 2012 VPL season.

Tsiaras arrives at Lakeside Stadium having established himself as a solid and reliable midfielder, having also captained Richmond in the VPL. He was part of Richmond’s Minor Premiership side in 2010 that ultimately fell just short of becoming Premier League Champions when it lost 3-0 to Green Gully in the Grand Final.

A lifelong South supporter and former junior player of the club, Tsiaras will provide coach Peter Tsolakis’ side with determination, leadership, passion and most importantly; solid experience at VPL level
