A-League signing: fullback extends Roar stay

Brisbane Roar have announced the re-signing of fullback Jack Hingert for a further two Hyundai A-League seasons.

The 25-year-old has played every minute of the Roar’s 17 Hyundai A-League games so far this season and is expected to start again against Central Coast Mariners in the Round 18 match at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

Hingert has played 77 Hyundai A-League games for the Roar and 87 matches across all competitions since joining the club from North Queensland Fury in season 2011/12.

“There’s been times in the past that have been hard for me with injuries and even times where I’ve been dropped or not in the squad,” Hingert said.

“A big part of that turnaround is John coming in and showing faith in me and I am definitely enjoying my football at the moment.

“I’ve worked hard with John and Ross and the rest of their support team have worked hard with me at training and it shows in games.

“I am trying to improve every week and I think I have done that.

“Re-signing with the club gives me security and I know where my future is so I can focus more on the games every week.

“I am happy here and I look forward to the next couple of years in Brisbane.”
