The Macarthur FC Bulls have continued to grow their herd, with teen Jake Hollman joining the fledgling club.

The 19-year-old becomes the 11th player to sign with the Bulls in their debut season.

Hollman has most recently gained experience as part of the Young Socceroos training camp, and has played in the Y-League and NPL with Sydney FC.

The young midfielder said he was excited to learn from the talented players and staff at the Bulls.

"Being in a full-time professional environment and having the opportunity to learn and grow as a player from the experienced players like [Mark] Milligan, [Matt] Derbyshire and Ivan Franjic is something I'm really looking forward to," he said.

"I'm extremely thankful to Ante [Milicic] for providing me the opportunity to join the Bulls.

"Stepping up into the A-League squad and being part of the club's inaugural squad is a great honour and something I'll always cherish."

Coach Milicic said Hollman would thrive on the opportunity to play in the A-League.

"Jake is a young man with the potential to become a quality first team player," he said.

"To give him an opportunity to step up from NPL to the A-League, while surrounding him with some of the experienced players in our squad will be very beneficial in his development."

Hollman joins Milligan, Derbyshire, Franhic, Tommy Oar, Denis Genreau, Adam Federici, Nick Suman, Milislav Popovic and fellow new signings Aleksandar Susnjar and Moudi Najjar (on loan from Melbourne City).

Macarthur FC will join the A-League in the 2020/21 season and play home games out of Campbelltown Sports Stadium. They will train at Fairfield Showground.
