Brisbane Roar is delighted to announce it has extended the contract of Roar veteran Scott Neville until the end of the 2024/25 season.
The experienced defender began his Isuzu UTE A-League career with Perth Glory in 2008 before spending time at Newcastle Jets and Western Sydney Wanderers.
He joined the Roar for the 2019/20 campaign, quickly establishing himself as a strong asset to the squad where he would remain for four seasons.
The 34-year-old has made 288 Isuzu UTE A-League appearances and has scored 14 goals, with 89 of those appearances and 4 of those goals scored at Brisbane.
Neville looks forward to continuing his time with the Roar, a club where he has created great memories and aims to finish his career at.
“I’m ecstatic to have signed on for another year at Brisbane Roar. I think it’s exciting the direction that the club is going in. I wanted to finish my career at Brisbane Roar, so to sign on for another year is amazing to help this journey and help the club move forward,” Neville said.
“It’s been great, I first came over here when Robbie Fowler signed me. Jack Hingert, Jay O’Shea, Tom Aldred, Corey Brown, Kai Trewin, and Macklin Freke have all been here the same time as me, so we’ve created some good memories and good bonds,” he added.
After the appointment of Ross Aloisi as Head Coach, and new management with CEO Kaz Patafta and COO Zac Anderson, Neville is excited about the new direction the club is heading.
“Now with the introduction of the new coach and coaching style and the direction the club is going in with new management with Kaz and Zac, it’s exciting times. I’ve enjoyed every minute playing for this club and am looking forward to getting back to Suncorp on a regular basis,” Neville said.
Neville aims for finals football as the season approaches and believes that the culture created around the camp will set the squad up for a positive campaign.
“After the last couple of seasons, we want to win as many games as possible. We want to play in the finals and go as far as possible and be the best team that we can be.”
“The way that we train and the culture we’ve created is really good and hopefully that can lead to some success for this coming season and beyond.”
