Conrad Balatoni desperate for Edinburgh City to hit jackpot in SPFL play-offs as he prepares for life as financial advisor


Conrad Balatoni is hoping Edinburgh City can hit the jackpot in the play-offs as he prepares for life as a financial advisor.

The former Hearts and Partick Thistle defender is currently completing his training for the post he will fully take up next month after deciding to go part-time last summer.

And, after topping League Two for so long this term, the 28-year-old has urged the Citizens to up the ante as they attempt to overcome a one-goal deficit against Clyde to reach the final.

He said: “I’m just in my training stage to become a financial advisor but I’ve passed so far and I’m on to the next level.

“I ‘go live’ on June 7 and I’m looking forward to it and looking forward to helping people.

“I’m excited but a bit nervous and it’s the same for the game this weekend.

“We know what we need to do, we need to go out and win and win by at least two goals.


“We can’t slip up, we need to take the game to them, give it our all and have no regrets.

“At the start of the season, people would have looked at Edinburgh City, having finished second bottom in the last two years, and thought we would be kicking around the lower half of the table again.

“We were disappointed in the end to finish third, though.

“But it didn’t change our objective of trying to get promoted and getting to League One, which would be a fantastic story for the club.

“We’ll give it our all to make that happen.”
