Matthew Sutton signs contract extension

Melbourne City FC goalkeeper Matthew Sutton has committed to the Club for the 2022/23 A-League Men season after signing a one-year contract extension. 

Sutton joined City in September 2020 and has been part of a squad that has won three trophies over the last two seasons. 

The 22-year-old has made three appearances for City, two of which came last season in a 3-1 win over Macarthur and a 2-2 draw against Western United. 

Extending his time at City was always the priority for the young goalkeeper and after getting a taste of senior football, Sutton spoke about his determination to continue developing as a player. 

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the last two years and I’m excited to build on what the Club has achieved. 

“Being able to stay within the four walls of City was important to me as I’ve built great relationships with my teammates. 

“I’m hungry as ever to work hard and give myself every opportunity to become a regular starter.” 

Melbourne City FC Director of Football Michael Petrillo spoke positively of the youngster following the contract extension. 

“Matthew is a popular character amongst his teammates. He’s a great team man and as a young goalkeeper, he’s still developing his game. 

“We hope to see him continue his development over the course of the coming season.”
