Macarthur FC secure Ruhs and Rose from NSW NPL

Macarthur FC are proud to announce the signing of Michael Ruhs and Liam Rose from NSW National Premier League Champions, Sydney United 58.

Both Ruhs and Rose have been training with the A-League newcomers from NPL 1 team, Sydney United 58 for the past few weeks.

Ruhs recently took part in a training camp with Gary van Egmond’s Young Socceroos in Sydney, while Rose suits up for the first time in the A-League since 2018 when he finished with the Mariners.

Currently sitting his HSC at Thomas Hassall Anglican College, the promising 18-year-old caught the eye of Bulls head coach Ante Milicic playing for Sydney United in the NPL this season.

A talented young midfielder, Ruhs was part of the Australian Joey’s u/17’s World Cup Squad in Brazil 2019.

Rose, a Bossley Park High School alumnus, returns to the Australian top-flight competition following a short stint with Ararat-Armenia in the Armenian Premier League after finishing with Central Coast Mariners in 2018.

Macarthur FC boss Ante Milicic welcomed both Ruhs and Rose to the club.

“Michael and Liam have shown great potential in their careers to date.

“While Liam is no stranger to A-League football, providing him opportunities with some of the senior members of the squad will be very beneficial for his development.

“For Michael, being around the first team week in week out, will be very beneficial for his growth as a player and person.

“Both men have been working hard in the NPL this season, and they have earned their opportunity.” Milicic added

Michael Ruhs said: “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity Ante has provided me in joining Macarthur FC. To be in this position, training and learning from Ante and the other experienced players is something I won’t be taking for granted.”

Liam Rose said: “The opportunity to be part of an inaugural A-League club is something very special. I would like to thank Ante for believing in me. It is great to be back in the A-League environment. We have a great bunch of boys and I am excited to be playing at Campbelltown Stadium in front of family and friends.”
