Abouri welcomes the warmth of BITS Saints
AUSSIE RULES: Steven Abouri was not sure what hit home when he stepped onto the tarmac after arriving at Gladstone Airport on Wednesday night.
From the yoyo weather of Melbourne, to the summer humidity of Gladstone, BITS Saints' latest recruit Abouri welcomed the warmth with open arms.
WELCOME TO QLD
"I got here and had to quickly change from my trackies," he said.
Abouri is friends with fellow Saints Melbourne recruits Rob Frost and Ubil Chol.
"I'm originally from South Sudan, I came to Melbourne and played footy at school, started playing footy locally and coached the juniors," he said.
Abouri is a defender who has skill and pace to burn.
"That's what I will be hoping to bring to the club," he said.
Keep a look-out in The Observer online and print editions of the other BITS Saints recruits Ubil Chol, Rob Frost and Scott Jackman.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB
The Saints train on Tuesday and Thursday's at 6pm at BITS Oval.
All new, past and present players - male and female - seniors and juniors - of all ages and abilities are welcome to attend training under the guidance of new head coach Rick Bean.
