Former Rush Player Wins Epsana Cup in Greece
Rush Soccer is pleased to announce that 2005 born Costa Iliadis, former Rush Canada Academy player, has won the EPSANA Cup with Aris Voulas in Greece.
Costa is a strikingly skillful winger who spent several seasons with Rush Canada’s 2005 team before signing for the prestigious Panathinaikos Academy in Greece. After several successful seasons with Panathinaikos, last fall, Costa decided to move to Aris Voulas in search of a valuable first-team experience.
The move proved to be worthwhile, since Costa made numerous first-team appearances and helped his team win the EPSANA Cup and finish third in the league.
Rush Technical Director Slobodan Pavlovic added, “Although Costa is only 16 years old, he was promoted to play with the senior team and was instrumental in the club’s recent success. Costa has ambitions to play professionally in Europe and works hard on his abilities to satisfy the highest standards set for players in the top European leagues.”
