Cklamovski has been a close confident of national team boss Ange Postecoglou since their days together at Melbourne Victory in the A-League and has been integral to the coaching set up of the Socceroos since Postecoglou took over in 2013.
Cklamovski, who takes over from Tony Vidmar, was humbled to receive the appointment.
“It is truly an honour to lead a national team at any level,” said Cklamovski.
“There are many challenges that exist at this level of player development, but at the same time there are also plenty of opportunities too.
“In line with the Socceroos our objective is to win a World Cup sooner rather than later," concluded Cklamovski
Cklamovski’s first item of business will be a training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport from 10-13 August to prepare for the AFC U-16 Championship Qualifiers which will be held in Mongolia from 20-24 September 2017.
FFA Head of National Teams, Luke Casserly, is confident that Cklamovski will be a major asset to the Australian National Teams program.
“Peter has worked with a number of clubs in the A-League and has been intimately involved in everything the Socceroos have done over the past four years including the 2014 FIFA World Cup, 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup & AFC Asian Cup 2015 victory,” said Casserly.
“Peter is very well placed to integrate our practices with the Socceroos through our junior teams and have no doubt he will be a great asset to this team."
