Aaron Robert Calver (born 12 January 1996) is an Australian professional football (soccer) player who plays as a defender for Sydney FC in the A-League.

Early life[edit]

Calver attended Heathcote High School in southern Sydney.[1]

Career[edit]

On 30 December 2012, Calver was called up to the first team for Sydney's New Year's Eve clash against Adelaide United.[2] Calver was substituted on in only the 14th minute of his sides 3–0 loss after Adam Griffiths sustained a leg injury.[3] Aged only sixteen (and having become Sydney's second youngest ever player, behind Terry Antonis, Calver was soon in contention for a position in the starting lineup, with several other defenders in the squad injured.[4]

In the 2014–15 season, Calver spent time playing at right-back, as well as his more customary centre-back role.[5] In February 2015, Calver was slapped by a Western Sydney Wanderers fan after watching the Sydney Derby; he declined to press charges from the incident.[6] In April 2015, Calver signed a new two-year deal with Sydney.[7]
