Kidsgrove Athletic goalkeeper Dominic Kurasik expresses his delight in re-joining the club for his second spell after leaving Australian outfit Preston Lions at the end of last season.
The 22 year old who made 24 appearances for the Grove last season said that “When I was away in Australia I always had it in the back of my head to come back to Kidsgrove whenever the opportunity came”.
The Australian even while he was at Preston Lions, where he played in the Victorian State League Division One , admits that “all I was thinking about was coming back to Kidsgrove where I enjoyed my football the most.”
Kurasik further spoke about The Groves current number one keeper Kieran Harrison where he mentioned that even though the two keepers maintain a good relationship, it's his job to push for that number one position. "I didn’t come here to settle for sitting on the bench."
However the keeper did emphasise that his prime focus is to try to help the club to get promotion and to get them as high up the table as possible.
It's apparent the shot stopper believes thats what the Grove should be aiming towards as a club even this early on in the campaign.
Prior to joining the Grove, Kurasik experienced periods in the Stoke Under 23s side where he began his professional career. He has also been at the Brentford B side and Colchester Under 23s while also having loan spells at Stafford Rangers and Maldon and Tiptree.
