Apollon Limassol U16

The team of Apollon Limassol U21 is among the most succesful and solid teams of the Cyprus league in the younger ages, with numerous of successes and many trophies, last of which were  the seasons 2009-2010 and the season 2011-2012 when the U21 team of Apollon won the Cyprus championship in both the cases with great ease. While the season 2010-2011 the team of Apollon Limassol beat in the Cup's Final the team of AEL Limassol 69-57 and added another cup in its wealthy trophy-case.
From time to time and season to season the U21 team of Apollon has brought up many talents which they left their footprint in the Cyprus Basketball and had great careers in their teams both in Cyprus and abroad.
Some of these key figures of the Limassol club consider being the following players:
Loukas Antoniou, Loukas was among the top power forwards/centers of the island from the mid 90's to the mid 00's with great career in Apollon Limassol and Keravnos Strovolou. Loukas was brought up in the academies of Apollon Limassol and he played in all the age categories of the team.It is worth mentioned that while he was studying in Athens, Greece he was a part of the team of Apollon Athens and had a great career in the local ESKA leagues for the four years he was in Athens.
Chrysos Christodoulou, Chrysos Christodoulou was also among the top power forward   / centers of the league and he played some decent basketball with many trophies in Apollon Limassol, APOEL Nicosia and AEL Limassol. He won quite many championships and cups. Chrisos started his basketball career within the academies of Apollon Limassol where he played in all the age divisions. He is currently the head coach of the Men' s team of APOP Paphou.
Sokratis Lamaris (currently a head coach in the team of Asteras Limasol), Sokratis remain a faithful soldier in Apollon nearly all his career as he played for more than fifteen years basketball in the team of Apollon Limasol with a small "Break" in PAO Panathinaikos Limassol in the seasons 1997-1999.
Pampos Charalambous (with a great career also in Keravnos Strovolou), Pambos begun his basketball career in Apollon Limassol academies and is among the most famous sixth players - swing gums of the Cyprus league in 90's. Pambos was a strong forward and good defender for the teams he played.
Akis Konstantinou (the ex Head Coach of the men's team), Akis was brought up in Apollon Academies and he played in all the age divisions of the Limassol club, another soldier of the Limassol club as he played for more than 13 years in all the age categories ending his career as a player in the Limassol club.
Christos Vrachimis another worker in the team of Apollon Limassol, Christos played basketball for twelve years in the team of Apollon Limassol and he started his career from the academies of the team, he played in all the age categories before joining the Men's team.
And the latest and still active players like, Iraklis Pittakas (currently Anagennisi Yermasogias player), Alexis Liatsos (currently AEL's player), and Paris Kounoudis (untill last season an active player with Anagennisis Yermasogias and with a long career in the A2 Greek division with Sporting Athens and also some years in the Greek lower division teams.
Last but not least, a player for which the futures seems bride is the talented member of the Men's team too, Stefanos Iliadis who was the top scorer in the U21 league of 2011-2012 with an average of 28 points per game and 6 asssists per game, a passionated kid who needs the right guidance to become a pro in the higher level. At the same time another great talent is the son of the ex Basketball player Dimitris Grivas, Konstantinos as he got his talent probably from his father he is much younger than most of his opponents but he is playing with amazing maturity and he was teh top rebounder this season even though he is hardly 1.92cm.
The players-figures today and possible prospects for the Men's team
Among the talents which were promoted in the Men's team this season is the international with the U16  NT of Cyprus, Vanios Antonov together with Giannis Avraamidis and Christos Xenofontos. If they get more chances than the period 2011-2012, from the Head Coach then their future is in front of them, otherwise they will be lost like many other local boys.....
