Terrigal United have made a major statement for Season 2021 in completing the signature of former
A-League player 𝐉𝐚𝐜𝐨𝐛 𝐌𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 for the duration of the campaign.
The 25 year old boasts a CV that includes 83 top flight appearances for
Adelaide United, Western Sydney Wanderers FC and more recently Central Coast Mariners, as well as 11 national appearances for the Australian U17s team.
Jacob will start training with his new club next Thursday and is looking forward to his next challenge on the coast.
