Adelaide United goalkeeper Joe Gauci has extended his contract with the Club by a further two years.

Gauci’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the season but will now remain with his hometown Club until the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

The 20-year-old has impressed during his 10 appearances, keeping three clean sheets and displaying composure beyond his years. 

After re-signing with the Reds, Gauci said: “To have the opportunity to stay at Adelaide United long-term is really massive for me.

“It’s my hometown Club and I’ve supported them since I was a young boy, so to stay here is really exciting.

“We’ve got a good group of boys and a great coaching staff, and I’ve had the unbelievable opportunity to play this year and make my debut.

“We’re close to making finals now and it’s a really exciting time.

“Hopefully we can win a piece of silverware this year, but in the future, we want to win as many games as possible and compete for Championships.” 

Adelaide United Director of Football, Bruce Djite, said: “Joe has made an impressive start to his Adelaide United career since joining the Club at the start of the season.

“We’re fortunate to have some of the best young goalkeepers in the country, each of them pushing one another for that number one spot. 

“The day-to-day competition in addition to being guided by Eugene (Galekovic) has certainly been the reason behind their rapid and continued development, which is very exciting for the Club’s future. 

“We’re really happy to have retained Joe’s services for the next two years and we look forward to seeing him continue his development.”
