Former Socceroo lands new role at FFA

Former Socceroo Luke Casserly has been appointed to a newly-introduced role as Football Federation Australia's head of national performance.

Chief executive David Gallop said 39-year-old Casserly, who played eight games for Australia in the late 1990s and early 2000s, would oversee management of FFA's national teams unit and elite player development.

Casserly has spent the past nine years working as an executive in the fresh produce industry.

He previously played 10 seasons in the now-defunct National Soccer League - including winning a championship with Marconi - and three years as a professional player in Europe.

The former defender also represented Australia at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and was head coach at NSW Premier League side Marconi Stallions.

Gallop said Casserly brought the right mix of football experience and management skills to the new position.

"The fact that Luke has in recent times coached in the semi-professional ranks in NSW and now is a volunteer youth coach shows he will bring to the role first-hand knowledge of the game from grassroots to the professional tier," he said in a statement on Thursday.

The appointment is part of Gallop's ongoing restructure of the FFA following his arrival in August last year.

Meanwhile, the FFA's national technical director Han Berger has announced he will not seek to renew his contract when it expires in July next year.
