The forward is only 29 years old but is much-travelled around the A-League having already represented Central Coast Mariners, Brisbane Roar, Melbourne City, Western Sydney Wanderers and Newcastle Jets.

He knows how to win a championship having done it with both the Roar and Mariners, while he also won the FFA Cup during his time with Melbourne City.
