The FFA Cup round of 32 will start next Wednesday night but two more matches have been postponed because of border restrictions and Queensland’s Covid-19-caused lockdown.

But two other games that has been scheduled for next Wednesday night – Queensland side Lions FC’s meeting with Northern Territory outfit Casuarina at Lions Stadium, and West Australian team ECU Joondalup’s clash with South Australian club Adelaide Olympic at Dorrien Gardens – have been postponed.

“The thing that stuck out for me is what John Aloisi brings to the club,” Young said.

“He wants success, he wants to push. When you play for a manager who pushes you, you go through brick walls for them. That’s what I want.

“I want to make sure the work I put in translates to success, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity here with Western United.”

Aloisi said Young was a “perfect fit” for United on and off the pitch.

“I got to know Jamie very well during our time together in Brisbane and I am so happy to bring him with us to Western United,” Aloisi said.

“His leadership and experience will be vital for us, and above all that, he has big qualities.

“There is a reason he was named the league’s best goalkeeper a few years ago.”
