Playing career[edit]

Club[edit]

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

On 31 January 2010 he made his first team debut for the Mariners in a 3-1 loss against Perth Glory, becoming the youngest player to represent the Mariners in the A-League.[1]

Sydney FC[edit]

In 2011, after he was told he wasn't in the plans of Central Coast manager Graham Arnold, Mallia moved to Sydney FC to take up a contract in their National Youth League setup. After an impressive start to the youth season where he was the leading goalscorer, Sydney FC manager Vítězslav Lavička gave Mallia his first Sydney FC senior appearance on 17 December 2011 against Newcastle Jets where he would then go on to make 6 appearances in the 2011-12 A-League season.[2] Mallia scored his first senior goal for Sydney FC on 19 February 2012 against Adelaide United in his team's 2-1 win at Hindmarsh Stadium. After impressing throughout the season, Mallia signed his first senior contract on 21 January 2012, sealing a two year deal with Sydney FC along with fellow youngsters from the youth league team Daniel Petkovski and Hagi Gligor.[3]

Blacktown City[edit]

In 2014, after the end of his contract with Sydney FC, Mallia signed with NPL NSW club Blacktown City.[4]

International career[edit]

On 7 March 2011 he was selected to represent the Australia Olympic football team in an Asian Olympic Qualifier match against Iraq.[5]
