The Macarthur FC playing squad has gone into double figures after two more signings this week.
Pictured here (below) is Moudi Najjar, 20, a proud western Sydney junior who joins the Bulls on a one-year loan agreement from Melbourne City.
The second is Jake Hollman, 19, who joins the A-League newcomers after strong outings in the Foxtel Y-League and NPL with Sydney FC.
The promising midfielder most recently had been part of Gary van Egmond’s Young Socceroos training camp in Sydney.
Hollman joins fellow international youth players Aleksandar Susnjar, Milislav Popovic, Denis Genreau and Nick Suman, as well as experienced Socceroos Adam Federici, Mark Milligan, Tommy Oar, Ivan Franjic and English youth international Matt Derbyshire.
Hollman said he was excited for the opportunity to learn from some of the experienced players in the Macarthur Fc squad under coach Ante Milicic.
“Being in a full-time professional environment and having the opportunity to learn and grow as a player from the experienced players like Milligan, Derbyshire and Ivan Franjic is something I’m really looking forward to,’’ he said.
Also this week, Macarthur FC announced that Sony Foundation Australia will be the club’s charity partner for the 2020/21 season.
The agreement sees Macarthur FC recognised as a Gold Corporate Partner of Sony Foundation in the club’s inaugural A-League season.
The centrepiece of the partnership will be the feature of a Macarthur FC A-League match day, transformed into the Sony Foundation Charity Day, giving fans and members the opportunity to support Sony Foundation.
The team will play in a limited edition Macarthur FC charity jersey, which will also be available for fans to buy.
Macarthur FC Chairman, Gino Marra, welcomed the partnership with the Foundation.
“Our region is in the fastest population growth corridor in Australia, with many young families moving to the area each year. Supporting those families in our community with disability or battling cancer, aligns with the club’s community first mindset,” Marra said.
