Ahmad’s Story

Ahmad Taleb is one of the kids that without Dunbar Rovers may not have had an opportunity to play football and now the 16-year-old has been given chance, he is thriving.

In just 13 rounds Ahmad has scored 29 goals for both the Under 16 and Under 18 teams – more than any other player in any NPL grade in NSW and Delves says it’s a mark of the program’s success.

Ahmad wasn’t given an opportunity by any NPL 1 clubs, so he ended up playing park football last year. This year he trialled for Dunbar Rovers and was selected and this year he is scoring plenty of goals.
