Jake McGing (born 22 May 1994) is an Australian professional footballer who plays as a right back for the Brisbane Roar.

Born in Sydney, McGing first played senior football for Marconi Stallions before joining A-League side Central Coast Mariners in 2015. He stayed at the Mariners for four years before moving to Poland for a brief stint in 2019, before returning to the A-League in June 2019.

Playing career[edit]

In February 2015, McGing signed a professional contract with A-League side Central Coast Mariners, having previously played for the Mariners' youth team.[2] McGing made his debut for the Central Coast in a loss to Wellington Phoenix in the 2015 FFA Cup.[3] He signed a two-year extension with the club in August 2015.[4]

Originally a midfielder, McGing moved into centre back under Mariners coach Tony Walmsley.[5] McGing scored his first A-League goal for the Mariners in November 2016, from a header in a draw against Newcastle Jets in the F3 Derby.[6] In the 2016–17 season, McGing increasingly played back in midfield.[7] The 2017–18 season again saw a positional shift, this time to right back.[8]

He signed a two-year contract extension with the Mariners in January 2018.[8]

In March 2019, it was announced that McGing would leave the Mariners, having signed with Polish Ekstraklasa side Wisła Płock.[9] McGing left the club in June 2019, having made 12 appearances.[10]

In June 2019, it was announced McGing would return to Australia to join new manager Robbie Fowler at the Brisbane Roar.[11]
