History of St Spyridon Soccer Club
In 1976, Father Steven Scoutas parish priest of St Spyridon Greek Orthodox Parish of South-East Sydney Kingsford, formed a local soccer competition comprising of boys attending the afternoon Greek Schools of the parish. St Spyridon church had thirteen Greek afternoon schools from which eight teams were formed and played in an organised competition amongst themselves. Games were played at Paine Reserve Randwick on Saturday mornings.
St Spyridon Soccer Club (SSSC) first affiliated with the Southern and Eastern Association by entering an under 16ís team in the 1979 season. Through the dedication and efforts of Mr. Con Pavlou President of the Parish Sports Committee, 1980 saw SSSC fully enter the association fielding four teams from under 10-14 years. Although not as experienced as most other clubs in the association, our teams performed with moderate success with the under 12ís and 14ís winning the Serderon Knockout Cup and finishing second and third in their respective competitions. The 1980 season saw the club field six teams in the association and the Greek afternoon school teamís competition was discontinued.
During the 1980ís the club continued to grow and in the mid eighties saw some of its best years when up to six teams won their respective competitions and went on to represent the association in the champion of champions. In 2007, the club saw the need to expand in order to be viable in the Eastern Suburbs Football Association, thus affiliating with Sydney Olympic Football Club and hence the name change to Olympic Eagles Football Club.
