Macarthur FC has continued their signing spree, securing young goal-keeper Nick Suman.

The 20-year-old joins the Bulls from the Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Hawkesbury junior played his club football for Sydney United before joining the WS Wanderers Academy in 2015. He then became a regular starter for the Wanderers NPL 2 team, including the club's Y-League Championship side.

Suman has also played five games in the A-League so far.

The left-footer said he was looking forward to working with teammate - and fellow gloveman Adam Federici - and goalkeeping coach Glen Moss (a former New Zealand All Whites keeper).

"I feel very privileged I'll be able to learn from both Adam and Glen," he said.

"The experience and knowledge they have and will be able to provide me is phenomenal.

"I am looking forward to working with them to take my game to the next level."

Coach Ante Milicic agreed the two older goalies would make a great impact on the youngster's development.

"Nick has a great opportunity to learn from two of the league's most experienced keepers in Mossy and Federici, with almost 600 topflight matches between them," he said.

"Nick has the potential to become a great keeper. The process and guidance we provide him will be key to unlocking that."

Suman joins Federici, Mark Milligan, Tommy Oar, Denis Genreau, Matt Derbyshire, Ivan Franjic and Milislav Popovic in the Bulls' inaugural squad.

Macarthur FC joins the A-League in the upcoming 2020/21 season and will play home games out of Campbelltown Stadium.
