Brimmer joins Auckland FCTop A-League player signed.

Football fans will have a new star to cheer for as Jake Brimmer, a top recipient of Australia A-League Men’s honours, has been named Auckland FC’s latest recruit.

Brimmer, previously at Melbourne Victory, is highly regarded in the A-League, having won the prestigious Johnny Warren Medal for the 2021-22 season.

At 24, he was the youngest Australian to receive the award since Mark Viduka in 1995.

In addition to the Johnny Warren Medal, Brimmer was part of the 2022 A-Leagues All-Star team and won the Melbourne Victory’s 2022 Victory Medal as Player of the Year.

He also received the Mark Viduka Medal in 2021, recognising his performance in the Australia Cup Final.

Auckland FC Head Coach Steve Corica expressed enthusiasm about Brimmer’s addition to the team.

“He possesses immense talent that will take him beyond the A-League. Auckland FC has the pathways to help him achieve that, and we anticipate he will step up to his role within the club as a key contributor to the team’s success both on and off the field,” said Corica.

Brimmer, born in Lilydale, Victoria, credits his early years at Nunawading City FC for shaping his career.

“It’s where I learnt at a young age the competitive side of football and the importance of fighting for the badge,” Brimmer said.

“Auckland FC will provide an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career.”

Auckland FC’s 2024/25 season kicks off in October, and inaugural memberships are now on sale.
