Clisby eager to make impact with City


Melbourne City FC announced the signing of 22-year-old defender Jack Clisby from Perth Glory last week and the Club’s latest recruit is eager to make an impact with his new team.

Clisby, who made 29 appearances for the Western Australian club will add strength, versatility and depth to John van’t Schip’s squad and Clisby seems determined to prove this.

“I believe there is a good opportunity here to further my career an I will be working hard in training to rectify that”

Clisby said he had settled well at Melbourne City after a week training with his new Club.

“Everyone at the Club has been tremendous and are looking to help,” Clisby said. “Everything about the Club and the people at the Club is professional.”

With only a few training sessions Clisby says “It’ll be good to start getting to know the players more”, but gives special mention to James Brown, Connor Chapman and David Williams who have helped him settle in quickly.

With Melbourne City’s A-League season restarting on Sunday 1 February against Western Sydney, Clisby looks forward to further his career by representing Melbourne City as he looks to “be an important player for the club”. 

Clisby says that he looks to make himself a better player, but feels he already has the attributes to contribute to the team. 

“I Iike to talk on the field” he says “On the ball I feel like I can offer a lot to the team” 

Clisby comes to the club with the intention of making an immediate impact – “I just want to prove to (the fans) that I can play for this club, they might not know much about me now but I want to make sure that they do when I’m playing in up and coming matches”.
