Young Australian full-back Scott Galloway has signed for Adelaide United, seeing him land at a fourth A-League club in five years.
Galloway penned a one-year deal with United on Tuesday night, completing a move to the city of churches after impressing on trial.
The 23-year-old appeared for the Reds in two preseason friendlies, against NPL South Australia clubs Adelaide Olympic and West Torrens Birkalla.
The AIS product joins Adelaide after one season with Wellington Phoenix, where his contract had ended.
“It feels great to join Adelaide United and I’m really excited to be part of this fantastic club,” Galloway said of his transfer.
“I knew coming here, initially on trial, I would have to impress Marco, but I was always confident that I’d be able to do that by playing my football.
“Now I want to take my game to the next level and I think that at this great club with the quality team around me and experienced coaches guiding me, I can do that.
“I want this to be the biggest season of my career by helping the club be successful through winning games and winning silverware.”
Galloway has also been on Melbourne Victory and Central Coast Mariners’ books since signing his first professional deal under Ange Postecoglou in 2013.
Adelaide boss Marco Kurz said Galloway had earned his opportunity as a triallist.
“We have been impressed with Scott and his performances in the preseason friendlies recently,” Kurz explained.
“It is never easy being a trialist, but he worked hard in the training sessions and made some good appearances for us against Birkalla and Olympic.
“We’re happy to sign him as part of the team for the upcoming season and we are confident his quality will add to our team.”
Galloway will wear Adelaide’s No.3 shirt and is the fifth addition to their senior roster.
Craig Goodwin, Ken Ilso, Mirko Boland and young gun Louis D’Arrigo have all signed up.
United face Central Coast Mariners in their FFA Cup opener at Marden Sports Complex on Wednesday night.
