Botic signs on for another two years


Rising Western United star Noah Botic has signed on for another two seasons with the A-League Men’s club.

Botic, who recently was named in his second Olyroos squad, has had a breakout start to 2023.

Making six starts this year, he has scored four goals in his last four outings.

Botic will continue to develop and learn his craft with Western United, a place that he feels is the perfect one for him to maintain his growth on and off the pitch.

“I’m very pleased to commit to Western United for the next two seasons,” he said “I’m very excited to continue to build and grow stronger relationships with the boys, so I’m very excited.

“I’m feeling very comfortable here at Western United as it feels like a second family to me, so I’m really enjoying it.

“I believe it’s the best place to continue my development as we’ve got some great coaches, both on and off the pitch that have helped me improve from the day that I arrived at the club.”

This signing marks a significant coup for the club, demonstrating its ability to retain one of the nation’s brightest young prospects and signifying the strength of Botic’s loyalty to the green and black.

Western United football general manager Mal Impiombato said Botic’s extension was an equally major step for both the club and the player.

“We are thrilled to extend the contract of one of the A-Leagues’ emerging young talents,” he said.

“Noah has shown his talent and work ethic ever since joining Western United and we are excited by his potential,

“Equally, we are extremely confident that we can provide the best environment for Noah to continue to improve.

“We have already seen how the culture, professionalism and talent within our squad has benefited Noah in the beginning of his professional career and we look forward to seeing that continue to grow.

“Noah has developed significantly over the course of his first two seasons here and we are eager to continue watching him grow on and off the pitch.”

Botic has amassed 17 appearances in the A-League so far, 14 of which have come in the 2022-23 season.
