Brent McGrath (born 18 June 1991) is an Australian football (soccer) player who played for Chonburi in the Thai Premier League. He plays as a striker. [1]

Junior Representative to International[edit]

Brent was recognized very early as a player of great potential. Whilst playing for Sydney United in the NSW Premier Youth League competition, he stood out as a player of the future. As a young 14 year old, Brent was selected in the NSW state team where his skills were being enhanced - getting him ready for the higher levels he was destined for. Even at this early stage, a very young and humble young man had his feet squarely planted on the ground. The early stages of the "U/14 Friendship Games"in 2005 were not the best for Brent, but he found his way in time for the end of that tournament to be noticed by Ange Postecoglou and would eventually go on to become the youngest 'Joey' at the time (for the U/17 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Laos, 2006)

Club career[edit]

McGrath signed for Brøndby IF in 2010. He wears the number 32 for his club. On 22 March 2010, McGrath made his senior debut for the Brøndby first team against Randers, coming on as a 65th minute substitute for Peter Madsen.[2][3]

McGrath scored his first goal for the club in October 2010 against FC Nordsjælland in a 1-1 draw in the Danish Superliga.[4]

Following his departure from Denmark, McGrath flew to Melbourne to trial with A-League club Melbourne Victory ahead of the 2013-14 season, but eventually signed for Adelaide United [5]

International career[edit]

McGrath received his first Socceroos call up by coach Holger Osieck for a friendly against Germany. He came on as a substitute for Brett Holman in time added on in Australia's 2-1 victory.
