South Melbourne FC would like to confirm the signing of 21 year old central defender Darby Dexter for the 2018 season.

Dexter joins us from fellow NPL club Port Melbourne, while he has previous experience also with Melbourne City’s Youth Team in both the National Youth League and NPL competition, as well as North Caulfield in the State League.

Dexter provides the squad with a tall and extremely strong central defensive option, who is also very composed with the ball at his feet.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, Football Director Nicholas Maikousis welcomed Darby to the club. “Darby is a tough young defender who we think can play a role in our first team squad for the 2018 season.”

We would like to welcome Darby to SMFC and wish him all the best for 2018.
