Macarthur FC is delighted to announce the signing of Australian Schoolboy Lachlan Rose for the Bulls 2020/21 inaugural season in the A-League.
The Sydney native played tennis as a junior before deciding to switch sports and carve out a path in football from the age of 10.
The 21-year-old represented both NSW and Australian Schoolboys in 2017, then later going onto make his NPL debut at the age of 18.
Macarthur FC Head Coach, Ante Milicic said Rose was someone that had been identified as someone with a great deal of potential.
“Our football department went to many NPL matches over the past 12 months and identified him as someone who may have a large potential for Macarthur and our inaugural squad.
“After bringing him into training and playing in a few games, he has fitted in well with the playing group and staff.” Milicic said.
“There is no doubt he will gain valuable insights from being around the first team and the experience from our senior members of the squad will be beneficial for him.
“At every opportunity he has impressed and worked hard to earn his spot in the squad.” Milicic added.
Rose was excited to be part of the Bulls inaugural campaign.
“I had to pinch myself when I heard the news!” Rose said.
“I’d like to thank Ante, Ivan and the coaching staff for the opportunity to come and trial with Macarthur. To be given this opportunity is something amazing, but I know the challenge only becomes greater from here.”
“I’m looking forward to working hard and learning from the experienced players in the squad like Derbyshire (Matt Derbyshire) and Millsy (Mark Milligan).” Rose added.
