Victory hand gloves to A-League debutant

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/11/2016 Ben McKay

Melbourne Victory have handed a first A-League start to new signing Matthew Acton after first-choice gloveman Lawrence Thomas suffered a finger injury in training mid-week.

Acton is making his debut against Newcastle Jets at Aami Park in Melbourne.

Kevin Muscat's side lost second-choice goalkeeper Alastair Bray last week to a dislocated shoulder, leading to Acton's signing on Thursday.

Acton most recently featured in the Philippines league for Kaya FC, having turned out twice for Brisbane Roar in 2013.
