Courtney-Perkins Becomes A Sky Blue

Sydney FC has completed the transfer of Australian Under 23 international Jordan Courtney-Perkins on a three-year deal from Polish first division club Raków Częstochowa.

The impressive centre-half arrives after helping the Olyroos qualify for the AFC U23 Asian Cup earlier this week, playing in a 7-1 win over Laos and 1-all draw against Tajikistan.

He makes the move from Poland where he was part of the Raków squad which won the Polish Cup and Super Cup.

The 20-year-old also won the National Youth League with Brisbane Roar in 2019 and was the club’s youngest ever A-League player – aged 16 years and nine months – when Robbie Fowler selected him to play against Sydney FC in the Australia Cup.

“I’m excited to be joining Australia’s most successful club, and eager to contribute to winning trophies,” he said.

“Sydney FC has the best stadium and training facility in the country and their young players are getting chances to perform, so it’s going to be a great three years for me.

“The club has top class players and extreme quality in their international stars, so I am confident I will learn a huge amount here.”

Head Coach Steve Corica believes the signing of Courtney-Perkins is an exceptional transfer for the club.

“Jordan is a quality young player and a regular in the Australian Under 23’s.

“He can play at centre-half or left back, he has an excellent left foot and will grow into a fantastic defender at Sydney FC.

“He gives us great depth and is experienced at A-League level for someone so young.

“We now have one of the youngest squads in many years at Sydney FC having promoted from our Academy and brought in players like Jordan from outside.

“It’s part of our commitment to give Australia’s best young talent opportunities to perform and Jordan is certainly an excellent prospect,” he said.

Courtney-Perkins began his career at Brisbane Roar before making the switch to Poland.

Courtney-Perkins has played 54 games in his professional career as well as 12 times for the Olyroos.

He will wear the Sydney FC number four shirt.
