Congratulations to Albany Creek’s Chom Arop who has been named the Total Compression Brisbane Premier League Player of the Month for July 2016.
Arop impressed the judging panel with performances in matches against Capalaba and Mitchelton as part of a late-season burst of form by his side.
The lanky striker has contributed 8 goals from 14 appearances since signing with Albany Creek after a short stint at Peninsula Power and spending 3 years at sister NPL club Moreton Bay Jets.
Football has been in the blood of the 20 year old from a very early age where he took up the game in his native Sudan. Upon arriving in Australia as a ten year old in 2006, that love continued during 6 years in Sydney before making the move to Brisbane and the Jets in 2013.
Reflecting upon his move to Albany Creek and the Brisbane Premier League this year Arop said, “It’s made me a smarter player. I just chase for the ball every time and work together with the rest of the team. It’s made me more aware of the game and the physicality of the BPL.”
Albany Creek are in white-hot form in the second part of the season, losing just twice since mid-May in the league. Currently 8th on the ladder, they still remain a mathematical chance of making the finals, sitting 5 points of 4th-placed Mitchelton but need other results to go their way. As Arop said though, the club won’t go down wondering.
“We all are confident enough. There’s a chance we can make the finals. All we can do is keep fighting and hope one of the other teams fall and if that happens, hopefully we’ll get our chance and we’ll take it.”
And that fight for a finals spot continues this Sunday when Albany Creek host Logan Lightning this Sunday at Wolter Park with kickoff at 4:30pm.
From everyone at QSN and Total Compression, congratulations Chom on your award.
