Melbourne Victory farewell four-time Liberty A-League champion

Melbourne Victory have confirmed the departure of star goalkeeper Casey Dumont as the 2023-24 Liberty A-League season looms.

In April, Victory had granted Dumont permission to compete in the AFLW competition for Hawthorn during the A-League Women off-season with the shot-stopper contracted to the club until the end of the 2023-24 campaign.
