MACARTHUR FC have boosted their football department with the acquisition of the 15th most capped player in A-League history, recently retired Glen Moss as the clubs goalkeeper coach.
The former Kiwi international joins Macarthur FC after finishing his career with the Newcastle Jets during the COVID-19 break.
Following a nearly 20-year football career, Moss decided to pass his love for the game onto the next generation of football players.
Moss, who began his football career at NSL club Sydney Olympic in 2003, before returning to his country of birth to join the New Zealand Knights FC who were then replaced by Wellington Phoenix in the A-League.
Debuting with the New Zealand national team at the age of 23, Moss amassed 29 caps for the All Whites, including helping to secure the nation’s first point in a senior FIFA tournament against Iraq at the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa.
The 6-foot-1 shot-stopper not only had an impressive international career, he also attained 250 appearances in the A-League across 5 clubs, marking his final match earlier this season against Melbourne City.
Accumulating 52 clean sheets, and appearing in 6 A-League finals, Moss now continues his passion for football onto a coaching path where he can pass on his knowledge and wealth of experience.
Macarthur FC Head Coach Ante Milicic saluted Moss’ love for the game and wealth of experience explaining it will be beneficial for Macarthur FC’s inaugural squad.
“To have someone of Glen’s calibre with extensive topflight experience will be invaluable for our squad.
“Having recently retired from professional football, I’m looking forward to Glen sharing his knowledge with our team. I’m looking forward to working alongside Glen in our inaugural season.” Milicic said.
Moss, who began his coaching career assisting the Newcastle Jets youth teams, is excited to continue his passion for coaching, helping to develop the next generation of A-League stars.
“There will be challenges starting from scratch, but we are given a unique opportunity and have the chance to create something very special for the community.
“Having played with Ante back in the Sydney Olympic days, I’m excited to link back up together, now in the coaching ranks at Macarthur FC.” explained Moss.
