Nikos Salapatas scores Doxa Virona’s first goal of the season, Greece

Nikos Salapatas, my brother, has been playing football since he was in our mother’s womb. He has broken countless objects within the house, many windows; we have lost countless balls in neighbouring gardens. However, after my grandfather (also called Nikos) persuaded my parents to take him to a football team, in order for him to play…there was no stopping him.

He has had an interesting and rich career up to this point, despite him being only 23. He began playing for Headstone Manor (NW London), Wembley F.C., Chelseas Academy, Olympiakos F.C., Luton Town F.C., Wealdstone F.C., Stevenage F.C., Paniliakos F.C. and now Doksa Virona F.C. Niko has also played for the National Team of Greece U17 and U 19.

His current football side is a historic team of Athens – Doxa Virona, which was founded in 1945. This team is currently in the 5th Group in the Third Division of Greece, also known as Football League 2. In the first game of the season, again Kisamikos in Crete, the two teams drew 1-1. Nikos Salapatas scored first. On twitter, he later claimed “Happy to have helped my team with my goal”. We wish him and his team to reach their objectives and have a successful season.!
