Club career[edit]

Good was born in Melbourne, Victoria and attended Wesley College. While growing up, Good met Jackson Irvine when "they were both ten and lived two minutes from each other and grew up together". They would also "ran cross countries together, played for Knox City (in Melbourne) as juniors".[2]

In 2008, he was offered a two-year scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport which he commenced in Canberra in 2009.[3] In February 2011 Good signed a multi-year senior contract with A-League club Melbourne Heart after impressing as a short term injury replacement.[4] His first league appearance for Melbourne Heart was in round 1 of the 2011–12 A-League season against Newcastle Jets.[5]

In July 2012, Good, having been granted a work permit, joined English Premier League club Newcastle United on a six-year deal for a reported transfer fee of $600,000 AUD.[6][7] Good was named on the substitute bench for the first time for the senior side in the defeat away to Man City in March 2013. He made his debut for Newcastle in their 2–0 win over Morecambe on 28 August 2013.

Bradford City[edit]

In November 2012, after several appearances for Newcastle's reserves, Good signed on loan for Bradford City.[8] He made his senior debut in English football for The Bantams in a 1–1 draw against Brentford in the second round of the FA Cup.[9] He was not registered by the 12pm deadline on the day of the game, causing Bradford City to initially be removed from the FA Cup.[10] This was however reduced to a £1000 fine on appeal.[11] In February 2013, Good appeared for Bradford in the 2013 Football League Cup Final at Wembley, won 5–0 by Premier League opponents Swansea City. Good was substituted at half-time.
