Newcastle Jets’ Cameron Devlin will make his Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 as a midfielder for the Olyroos, when Australia takes on the sixteen-strong field in the Men’s Football event.
Born in Sydney, Devlin is a defensive midfielder, who occasionally plays central midfield. He began his professional football career for the Western Sydney Wanderers U21 in the National Premier League. He moved to the Sydney FC U21 for two years, and was soon called up to the A-League for Sydney FC, where he made seven appearances over the 2019-2020 season.
Cameron declined a stay in Sydney at the end of the 2019 season, moving to New Zealand to play for Wellington Phoenix FC on a two-year deal. He made over 45 appearances for the team, including two appearances for their reserves squad. He was awarded the A-League Player of the Month after an outstanding performance filling in for regular midfielder Alex Rufer.
At the conclusion of the 2020-21 season, Cameron signed a two-year contract to play for the Newcastle Jets, under the tutelage of Arthur Diles.
With over fifty A-League appearances to his name, Devlin will be one to look out for when the Olyroos descend upon the pitch in Tokyo.
