A-League: Ben Halloran signs with Brisbane Roar

Former Socceroos winger Ben Halloran returns to Brisbane Roar 11 years after leaving the A-League club.

Halloran, 31, has signed a multi-year deal with the Roar after being released by Adelaide United when his contract expired at the end of the 2023–24 season.

Halloran, a Cairns product and member of Australia’s 2014 World Cup squad, has made 180 appearances in the A-League, including 28 with the Roar during the club’s 2012-13 season.

He also played for Gold Coast United, German clubs Fortuna Düsseldorf and Heidenheim, Japanese team V-Varen Nagasaki and South Korean team FC Seoul.

The Roar are also expected to sign Australian U23 defender Hosine Bility.

Bility spent the last two seasons with Portuguese second division club Brada and was previously under contract with Danish club Midtjylland, who loaned him to Fram Reykjavik in Iceland.

Meanwhile, Melbourne Victory will expand its squad by signing former Newcastle Jets winger Reno Piscopo and attacker Jing Reec, who joined the Central Coast Mariners on loan from Danish club Aarhus GF for the 2023-24 season.

The Mariners confirmed on Wednesday the signing of former Jets defenseman Lucas Mauragis to a three-year contract.

“I am thrilled to begin this new chapter of my career alongside this exceptional group of players,” said Lucas after joining the A-League champions.

“I hope to push boundaries, exceed expectations and strive for nothing less than to continue to bring joy and success to the fans.”

Mauragis’ signing came shortly after Central Coast signed Brazilian star Mikael Doka for three more seasons.
