Izaack earns A-League call-up!

Izaack after Roar Youths Y-league grand final victory over the Western Sydney Wanderers

Izaack Powell’s wonderful start to 2019 looks set to continue with the former Moreton Bay United Junior named in the Brisbane Roars squad to face A League powerhouse Sydney FC tomorrow.

If Izaack makes his debut at Suncorp Stadium tomorrow night, he would become the Roar's youngest Hyundai A-League player at four days short of his 17th birthday!

It comes just days after the 16-year-old defender was an integral part of the Brisbane Roar's championship-winning Y-League team last week. Izaak is pictured with the Y-League trophy last weekend. The Roar website said selection for the senior squad was reward for Izaack's "impressive Foxtel Y-League campaign".

Matt Poole, MBU Technical Director said: “Izaack has obviously done extremely well to get to this point in his football career. He played most of his football for MBU in midfield, which gave him a solid technical base for when he was eventually developed into a fullback in his first year at the QAS.

"It will be a big thrill for the club if Izaack does make his debut especially considering his father John is still on the MBU junior coaching staff."

MBU continues to provide a strong pathway for its juniors and support the partnership with Brisbane Roar which now sees with 14 of its current SAP players training with Roar coaches in the Roar Pre-Academy each Friday night.

Everyone at MBU congratulates Izaack and is so proud of his success.
