Team News: Roar’s youngest ever player in contention


Head Coach Robbie Fowler has finalised his squad for Sunday’s historic fixture at Dolphin Stadium against Melbourne City (3pm KO QLD Time).

The Roar’s youngest ever player is in contention to make his Hyundai A-League debut after returning from international duty at the FIFA U17 World Cup. Courtney-Perkins became the Roar’s youngest ever player in the FFA Cup Round of 16 clash, but is yet to make his Hyundai A-League debut.

The 17-year-old is one of three inclusions alongside George Mells & fellow defender Aaron Reardon.
