South Hobart have signed defender Luke Huigsloot from Clarence United.
Huigsloot is expected to make his debut on Saturday in the friendly against Beachside and then also play in the opening round of the Steve Hudson Cup in Launceston on the Sunday.
“This is a massive signing for us,” said South Hobart coach, Ken Morton.
“He’s a dynamic young player and we think he’ll be a big acquisition to us.
“Hopefully, we’ll bring something to his game, and he’ll certainly bring something to our game.”
South Hobart beat Taroona 4-1 in a friendly this evening at Wellesley Park.
Jonathon Lo and Jim Pennicott each scored a brace, while Felix Kanga replied for Taroona with a penalty.
“The game was good in patches,” said South Hobart coach, Ken Morton. “But, at other times it was scrappy.
"It was another good work-out for us. It wasn’t a full side for us, but still a good side.
“They worked hard. The young lads fought hard for each other. Not a bad work-out.
“The first 20 minutes we blitzed them off the park. We scored after just four minutes and the game could have been over.
“But, we fall into the habit of dropping into their ways a little bit. But, a good work-out. We’ve had good numbers at training but we didn’t play a lot of players tonight.”
“Taroona worked the ball well and maintained discipline and tried to play out from the back. It was refreshing.”
