Melbourne City announced on Tuesday that another player is set to depart the club at the end of the season.

Curtis Good, who is the current record holder for games played at Melbourne City (179*), is set to pursue an opportunity outside of the A-Leagues.

The news comes after City announced on Monday that striker Jamie Maclaren is also departing at seasons end for an opportunity outside of the A-Leagues.

“As a Melbourne boy, it’s been a privilege to represent this club for as long as I have,” Good said.  

“From giving me the confidence as a young player to make the leap to Europe, and all the success we’ve shared since returning to Australia, the club has played a massive role in shaping me both on and off the pitch.  

“My teammates, the staff and our fans have had a lasting impact on me. I love this club, and to have an award named after me is a huge honour. My family and I will always call the club home.”

The club announced that it will rename the ‘Clubman of the Year’ award to the Curtis Good Award, an award the club says is presented to the player who best embodies the spirit, character and values of Melbourne City FC, both on and off the field.

Melbourne City Director of Football Michael Petrillo reflected on his memories of Good, calling him one of the best defenders the league has ever seen.

“Curtis has had to overcome a serious injury which significantly affected his earlier career and has gone on to become if not the best, one of the best, defenders the A-League has seen,” Petrillo said.

“He’s played an integral part in our Men’s team’s success during their history-making run, with his persistence, consistency, defensive intelligence and strength in the contest really standing out. 

“As a home-grown boy who started his career with us, he’s always been universally loved by our fans and equally respected by his peers.  

“He leaves as a club legend and will always have a home at Melbourne City.” 

Good won three Premiers Plates, a Championship, as well as the club’s player of the year in 2020/21, a season in which City won the double.
