South Melbourne FC confirms that Marcus Schroen has re-signed with the club for the next two seasons.

Schroen enjoyed a solid 2019 season with SMFC. He was promoted into the leadership group and was also given the captain’s armband on several occasions throughout the season.

His overall time at South has been impressive, playing in 116 matches across all competitions and scoring 26 goals. This included scoring a double in the 2016 Grand Final win over Oakleigh and subsequently winning the Jimmy Rooney Medal for best player on the field.

Speaking to smfc.com.au, Schroen said that “I am excited to sign on for another two years and couldn’t be happier. I’ve got a great relationship with the club and feel at home here. I really believe in the direction the club is moving in and I am looking forward to helping South get back to the top where we belong.”

Senior Football Director Andrew Mesourouni echoed Marcus’ thoughts. “Marcus is an integral part of our senior team and a leader of our club. We are looking forward to 2020 and are confident that with individuals such as Marcus leading the club, we can make strides on the park towards a successful season. He is a quality and hard-working player that leads by example, so we are thrilled to have him back on board.”
