Jonathan Aspropotamitis and Jerry Skotadis join Macarthur FC

·

With the 2022/23 Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s season set to kick off in October this year, Macarthur Football Club have signed defender Jonathan Aspropotamitis and midfielder Jerry Skotadis.

Jonathan Aspropotamitis has amassed 95 A-League appearances since making his professional debut in March 2015 with the Western Sydney Wanderers and delivered impressive performances in the AFC Champions League where he featured in 9 matches for Perth Glory in 2020 and for the Wanderers in 2015 and 2017.

The 26-year-old joins the Bulls from Perth Glory where he made history by scoring the club’s first-ever goal in the AFC Asian Champions League.

Internationally, the defender has represented Australia, captaining the under 23s in the 2018 AFC Asian Cup where he was voted man of the match by the AFC in his first match and scored a goal in his final match.

In a tweet, the Greek Australian expressed his anticipation to begin training with the South West Sydney team and his excitement to be back home in NSW.

“The Bulls are a relatively new club and I’ve been part of new clubs before and there is that exciting feeling about it which I like. With the new coach and some new players, I think the squad is coming together nicely, it’s exciting to be here,” Aspropotamitis said in a press release.

News of Aspropotamitis’ signing comes just 24 hours after it was confirmed that fellow Greek Australian Jerry Skotadis had joined Macarthur FC.

The 22-year-old midfielder joins the Bulls from Western United where he amassed over 40 games over the past two seasons including coming off the bench in the 2021/22 grand final win over Melbourne City.

Skotadis made his professional debut with Sydney FC and has made one appearance in the AFC Champions League.

“It’s a new challenge being at a different club, and I look forward to helping the club achieve every success in the future,” Skotadis said in a press release.

“I believe being under the guidance of Dwight Yorke will help me continue to develop as a player and build experience from a knowledgeable and highly regarded name in football.”
