Jake Davies

Senior Coach

“My first season at the Panthers was 2011, after my family moved here from the UK”.

Favourite footballing moment?

“That’s a tough one. I was lucky enough to play representative football as a teenager representing the LCFA. I made great friendships from these tournaments and we even came out with a few wins, which was a bonus.


I also love Liverpool Football club, so being in a packed bar full of other fellow reds for the 2019 Champions League final was one of my favourite nights ever. All in all, football has provided me with so many wonderful moments it’s so hard to pick!”

Jake has been at our club for 10 seasons now. As a player he has played right through from U12’s to our senior team. Jake has taken on the role of senior coach this season, he has a great knowledge of the game and the club hope this knowledge will wear off in the players. All the best for the season @pomjake!

Mikey Mealo

Under 17's Coach - Senior Selection Panel

“I have been involved with the Portland Panthers since 2017”.

Favourite footballing moment?

“Favourite football moment to date was watching my son Eleazar @aceit_11 curl in his first goal for the Panthers from just outside the box over the keeper off of his weak foot”.

Mikey has been a fantastic addition to our club. He’s such a good role model to our kids and his junior side love playing for him. His training sessions are super fun and the club love his positive attitude and how it wears off on the juniors. We would like to wish Mikey and his side all the best for the upcoming season! @mikeymeaola

Razvan Atodorosei

U12’s and U14’s Coach

“I first came to the Portland Panthers in 2008, when I moved to Australia from Romania”

Favourite footballing moment?


“There are so many great moments I could of chosen, but for me the one that stands out is Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat trick against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA champions league!”

Raz, has been a fantastic servant for the Panthers over the years, he has been a phenomenal player at both ends of the ground. Top goal scorer in a strong senior side under the guidance of ex-coach Luke Gerritsen in 2014 and an excellent centre half under ex coach David Stafford in 2016.


Now Raz coaches are junior sides and is brilliant with the kids, he has loads of experience and our young Panthers really are in great hands! All the best for the upcoming season!
