Macarthur FC are pleased to announce 19-year-old midfielder Jake Hollman has extended his contract with the A-League newcomers for a further two-years.
Hollman who made his A-League starting eleven debut during Friday night’s 4-0 demolition of Adelaide United at Campbelltown Stadium, has been rewarded for his early season efforts with coach Ante Milicic moving swiftly to lock in the youngster’s talents until 2023.
The young Socceroo has already featured in five of the eight matches this season, earning the free-kick in his A-League debut against the Wanderers that eventuated in Beñat Etxebarria securing the clubs first goal and win in the competition.
After setting up Denis Genreau’s opening A-League goal with some crafty work on the edge of the box against Brisbane Roar, the 19-year-old’s speed and agility has made the midfielder a big talking point in recent weeks.
Macarthur FC Coach Ante Milicic said:
“We are delighted to have secured Jake for a further two years.”
“He is an exciting dribbler in the front third and adjusting well to playing with men in senior football. We are really pleased with his progress from pre-season to now.
“He is a serious young man who has the right attitude and continually wanting to learn. He is a good professional who is reaping the benefits of the environment the senior players have created at the club.” Milicic said.
Speaking on the opening eight weeks of the competition, Hollman said he is enjoying the challenge and looking to continue developing.
“I love it here. It’s a great club for my development.”
“I’m thankful to Ante and the coaching staff for the opportunities so far, and now it’s up to me to repay the trust they have instilled in me.
“I feel this is the perfect environment.” Hollman said.
