Josh Brindell-South has joined the growing list of players recommitting to Brisbane Roar after signing a multi-year contract extension with his hometown club.
The Queenslander has impressed in his second stint at A-League level, making 13 appearances and scoring crucial goals in wins over Western Sydney Wanderers and Western United.
“It’s a privilege to play for the club I’ve supported since I was young and I’m excited to continue pulling on the orange shirt,” Brindell-South said.
“When I came in at the start of the season, I needed to push myself. I wanted to prove myself to the boys and the coaching staff that I could play at this level and do well. And I wanted to get minutes as well.
“Obviously with Jack [Hingert] being out at times, there’s been an opportunity for me and I feel I’ve done quite well.
“It’s something I want to build on.”
Brindell-South said making the step back up to the A-League had been made easier under Head Coach Warren Moon, a key figure in his development at both Peninsula Power and Lions FC.
“Having worked with him before, knowing what he wants out of you, it makes it a lot easier,” the 28-year-old said.
“It’s a smoother transition than coming into a new environment and not knowing anyone, or having to play a different style.”
Moon added: “Josh has shown this season that he belongs at A-League level.
“He’s worked hard at his game, he’s earned his opportunity, and he’s taken it. I have a lot of faith in players like Josh who come up from the NPL, so his progression has been great to see.
“The challenge for him now is to kick on and keep improving, and I’m sure he will do that.”
