News: Nico Defreitas-Hansen

Everybody at Atherton Collieries would like to wish the best of luck to goalkeeper Nico Defreitas-Hansen, who has departed the Skuna Stadium to pursue professional football opportunities in the United States.

The Danish goalkeeper was a summer arrival in 2022, linking up with brother Luca at the Skuna Stadium. Since his debut at Broadhurst Park in August 2022, Nico has become a fans favourite across his 52 appearances for the club, including 12 clean sheets, 5 Man of the Match awards and a current record of 4 Supporters Club Player of the Month honours, as well as tallying a solitary assist for the club during last week's win at Bradford (Park Ave.).

Nico departs to pursue professional opportunities in the United States football pyramid, and live closer to his family in Miami. Everybody at the club would like to thank Nico for his service and efforts at the Skuna Stadium, and we all wish him the best of luck with his future career.
