Melbourne City FC signs defender Scott Galloway

Melbourne City FC Director of Football, Michael Petrillo said Galloway’s experience and consistency would allow him to slot seamlessly into the City side.

“Scott is an intelligent player who will add balance to our defence and provide options with his ability to play on both the right and left sides,” said Petrillo.

Scott Galloway said:

Galloway is already the 16th player contracted to Melbourne City FC for the 2019-20 season and will join up with the rest of the squad when players return to pre-season training in early July.
