Ilic, Sasa Like Danny, I can recall Sasa playing for St. Leonard's FC(STAMCO FC as was). Outstanding keeper at Dr Martens level, destined for better things. Remember listening to Charlton's play off game at work and thinking back to when Sasa was in our goal. Happy days.

Ilic, Sasa I went to university in Eastbourne with Sasa and my friends were all jealous that I knew him! He was gorgeous, I was engaged and my mates were scared stiff by him! They couldn't understand why he came up to me and gave me a big hug on nights out purely because I did a football module with him and we laughed a lot throughout! Xxx

Ilic, Sasa I remember going to watch St.Leonards Stamcroft as a kid and Sasa Ilic was outstanding! Having only watched local football he was the first keeper I saw live where I was taken aback at how good he was. You just knew he wasn't going to be at that level for long. He left the club and went to Charlton and became an instant hero
