Melbourne Victory signed former Brisbane Roar goalkeeper Matt Acton as an injury replacement player in November 2016, before signing him to a further one-year deal for the 2017/2018 season.
Acton, an Australia under-20 international, trialled with Victory in the lead-up to the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.
Acton is a product of the Roar's youth system, where he began as a teenager after graduating from the Queensland Academy of Sport.
He made his Hyundai A-League debut during the 2013/14 season, making two appearances in place of the injured Michael Theo.
Brisbane won both of those games and conceded just one goal, while Acton impressed with some world-class saves.
After a stint with Yangon United in Myanmar in 2014, he returned to Roar for the second half of the 2014/15 season, before joining Queensland's Olympic FC.
He then signed with Kaya FC in the Filipino top division, where he played for the duration of the 2016 season.
