February 11th, 2008 — Billy Celeski, Players
One midfielder in, another one out.
But is Billy Celeski a same-for-same replacement of Adrian Caceres? It would appear not. Celeski is an attacking midfielder, but one who is best played in the centre of the park. It seems the wide position played by Caceres will still need filling.

February 6th, 2008 — Billy Celeski, Melbourne Victory, Transfers
Billy Celeski, an Olyroo and former Perth Glory player, has just signed with the Melbourne Victory.

Celeski’s best moment last season came in mid-December, when he scored a hat-trick against Sydney FC. He only scored one other time, but as far as I’m concerned, anyone that can score a hat-trick against Sydney is welcome at Melbourne!
Celeski adds his name to a growing list of former Perth Glory players currently plying their trade with the Victory. Adrian Caceres, Daniel Vasilevski and Nick Ward have all been with the Glory.
