Star Tasmanian striker Noah Mies officially became a George Cross player this afternoon. The 20 year-old is the son of former Launceston City legend, Roger Mies. Noah became the third generation to play for Launceston City, following his dad and his grandfather, who also played at the club and was one of the founding members.

Noah is joining George Cross at the top of his game having scored 15 goals in 2018 and 10 goals in 10 games this season. After his goal scoring feats in the Tasmania NPL he has become a much sought after player with several Victorian NPL clubs in pursuit of the talented youngster.

Coach Corey Smith is very happy to have finally secured his man after six months’ work and Noah too is excited for the challenge ahead and is looking forward to working with his new coach. Corey Smith had this to say after signing Noah today: "He possesses power, speed and has two good feet and being 1.90 metres  (6'3”) tall he is an aerial threat. He has a great attitude, a level head and is mature beyond his years.”

In 2017 Noah surprisingly won the young Tasmanian Player of the Year medal after breaking into the senior team that same season.

Noah Mies goal is to achieve the big time. “My long-term dream is the A-League or just to be a professional, but at the moment I’m just looking forward to the next few seasons".

He said: “It is inspiring to see Australians like Aaron Mooy at Huddersfield and Matt Ryan at Brighton playing in the English Premier League and I would love to follow in their footsteps”.

We welcome Noah to the Georgies and wish him a happy, long and successful stay at our club.
