DeVere signs on for 2 more seasons

Brisbane Roar FC have re-signed Luke DeVere, locking down the key defender for a further two Hyundai A-League seasons.

The 27-year-old centre-back is entering the prime of his career and is thrilled to continue his footballing journey at the Club he joined as a 19-year-old.

?I?m excited to be extending my contract with Brisbane, the team that gave me my first opportunity in professional football,? DeVere said.

?We have such a great Club here in Queensland and I can?t wait for what the future holds.

"With this extremely talented group of players, I?m looking forward to a successful future.?

DeVere has played the majority of his football in the Hyundai A-league for Brisbane, making 87 appearances and scoring four goals in Orange after a brief stint abroad in South Korea.

The dependable defender?s 2015/16 campaign was ruined by injury but hard work and determination has seen DeVere reestablish himself in the heart of Brisbane?s backline, starting every game this season.

DeVere?s defensive partnership with Jade North has been tough to crack, with the Roar boasting the Hyundai A-League?s second best defensive record.
 
Football Director Craig Moore is pleased to have a cornerstone of the Club?s defensive future secured and praised DeVere?s professionalism and leadership.

?Luke is a valuable member of our squad who not only leads by example but embraces the values we have

Marco Monteverde, The Courier-Mail

BRISBANE Roar attacking midfielder Dimitri Petratos will leave the three-time A-League champions at the end of the season to join the Newcastle Jets.

Former Sydney FC prodigy Petratos, 24, has made 92 A-League appearances for the Roar since moving to Brisbane in 2013 and was part of the squad that won the 2014 premiership-championship double.

The Roar offered him a new deal to remain in Brisbane beyond this season, but his desire to be closer to his NSW-based family as well as a better offer from the Jets led to his decision to depart Queensland.

Petratos?s agent Tony Rallis confirmed his client?s move, and also said there was a strong change that Petratos?s brother Kosta, currently at Perth Glory, will also join the Jets next season.

?I?m really pleased to commit my future to Brisbane, it was an easy decision,? Kristensen said.

A-League club Brisbane Roar strike a blow for sanity by honouring their past

It's official. Brisbane Roar will be celebrating their 60th anniversary this year. It's a great pleasure to be able to say that.

The history of the Roar has been muddied ? perhaps deliberately by some ? since the A-League license first changed hands in 2008. It's changed hands twice since, and is now owned by the Bakrie Group, of Indonesia. Thankfully, rightfully, the owners have opted to respect history, rather than trash it. "You can't ignore your heritage," Roar managing director Mark Kingsman said. So true.

Thus the club born as Hollandia in 1957, which became Brisbane Lions when the NSL was formed in 1977, is turning 60 years old. Changes of name, or ownership, doesn't change the bloodline. Never has, never will. So there will be functions organised to celebrate the anniversary and next season the Roar will wear a commemorative emblem on their shirts.

Those shirts will remain orange, even though the club wore a one-off maroon shirt early this season. "Orange
