Melbourne Victory signs shot-stopper Max Crocombe

Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce it has signed goalkeeper Max Crocombe for the 2020/21 season.

The New Zealand international shot-stopper joins the club after spending last season at Brisbane Roar.

The 2019/20 season was the 27-year-old’s first in the A-League, after spending the previous fifteen years playing in England for clubs such as Milton Keynes Dons, Oxford United and Salford City.

Crocombe spent his early childhood growing up in Melbourne and was thrilled to sign with Victory.

“Melbourne Victory has a history of success, passionate members and fans and I’m extremely proud to have signed on for this season,” Crocombe said.

“After speaking with Grant Brebner, I have a really clear understanding of the football program he is looking to develop on and off the park at the club, and I’m excited to be a part of it.

“I’ve met my new teammates and looking forward to my first session of the pre-season. I’m ready to put in the hard work over the coming months and doing everything I can to help the squad prepare for a big campaign.”

Head Coach Grant Brebner welcomed Crocombe to the Victory family.

“We are pleased Max has joined us at Melbourne Victory,” Brebner said,

“Max has played on the international stage, he’s spent more than a decade playing in England, so his experience, professionalism and drive will be beneficial to our squad.

“We’ve spoken at length about the environment we are creating at the club and the Victory brand of football we want to play this season and beyond and Max is fully invested.

“We look forward to Max putting in the hard yards over the coming months as we prepare for the Asian Champions League and A-League season.”
