Tom Aldred Departs Brisbane Roar

Brisbane Roar wish to confirm the departure of Club Captain, Tom Aldred following the conclusion of the 2023/24 Isuzu UTE A-League campaign. 

Aldred joined the Roar ahead of the 2019/20 A-League season and quickly established himself as one of the best defenders in the competition. 

The defender became just the Roar’s sixth Club captain ahead of his maiden campaign down under and has led from the front since day one across five seasons in Queensland. 

The 33-year-old played 116 competitive matches for the Roar, scoring three goals, and winning the Gary Wilkins Medal in the 2022/23 season. 

The Roar skipper who became an Australian citizen earlier this year led the side to two A-League Finals Series as well as the 2023 Australia Cup Final.

Brisbane Roar wish to thank Tom and his family for their incredible contribution to our Football Club. 

Aldred thanked all involved during his time at Brisbane Roar. 

“To everyone at Brisbane Roar FC,  

“I want to thank you all for your support over the past 5 years, it has been a privilege and honour to lead this great club.  

“It has been the most incredible journey of my life, from moving from the other side of the world, to becoming the first ever foreign captain and playing over 100 A league games, becoming an Australian citizen, and most importantly representing Brisbane and Queensland with pride.  

“To all the players and staff I have worked with in my time thank you, I have always felt I have had your backing and support as a leader. For the younger players, I hope I have been able to impact you in some way to help further your career moving forward.  

“It is now time for me to move on and continue my footballing journey, I leave as a proud Australian citizen and a Brisbane Roar fan. I wish the team and the club all the best in the future and look forward to watching the games next season.  


Goodbye Tom ❤️”
