The A-League Goalkeeper of the Year is an annual soccer award presented to the best goalkeeper in the A-League. The award is determined by a panel of experts.[1]

The A-League was founded in 2005 to replace the semi-professional National Soccer League.[2] The number of teams in the league has ranged from eight to eleven and there are currently ten clubs in the league.[3] The Goalkeeper of the Year award has been given out since the league's inaugural season.

Eugene Galekovic has won the award four times, the most times out of all keepers. Michael Theo is the next-most successful, with three awards.


Clint Bolton won the inaugural A-League Goalkeeper of the Year award in 2005.
