THEY'RE not ring-ins and they've got the registrations to prove it.
But they are the most overqualified players in the Blacktown district soccer association's over-35 competition.
They are former Socceroos Tony Popovic and Zeljko Kalac, and they're running around for Glenwood.
"Special guests," Glenwood president Craig Picken said with a laugh
"Just a bunch of mates," said Mark Ivanic, manager and player, and the grand old man of the team at 46.
Popovic is the coach of the new Western Sydney Wanderers A-League franchise, of course, in his back-up career.
Kalac is goalkeeping coach with Sydney FC.
Add former Socceroos conditioning coach Anthony Crea and Glenwood could claim to be a team of internationals.
"They can exaggerate for their grandkids," Picken said of team-mates who find themselves in such illustrious company.
Ivanic said teammates and opponents alike could indeed tell stories about a Glenwood packed with players who have other soccer roles of varying capacities.
But he said the story behind how the team came together was straightforward.
"We've known each other for a long time and it's just good fun," he said. "Playing on Friday nights makes it easy to participate and none of us train," he said of the fit with other soccer commitments.
"It's just a chance to have a kick-around with your mates and keep fit."
They've been an attraction.
As president Picken said: "It's good for the kids to watch."
So how have they gone?
Well, last Friday night was the last premiership round, Glenwood finished second and the finals start this weekend.
The minor premiers?
That's Minchinbury, another team made up of players with soccer in their blood, their DNA, every part of their being.
They're prominently South Americans, so the O35s could be a mini World Cup major semi-final when the teams meet this Friday night.
