Biography

Growing up on the Gold Coast, Jay Rich-Baghuelou has always dreamed of playing football for Australia. The 21-year-old will soon realise this dream in Tokyo, where he is set to make his Olympic debut with the Olyroos.

Jay started his career as a striker with Gold Coast City. Still in his teens, Jay decided to move to England where he initially signed with non-league team Dulwich Hamlet before moving to National League South side Welling United, where he signed an 18-month deal.

In 2020, Jay signed with Crystal Palace Football Club's U23s team and recently helped them earn promotion to the Premier League 2.

A year later, Jay made his National Team debut in a three-game tournament held in Spain. The 1.96m tall centre-back started all three of those games.
