North joined Brisbane in 2012/13, won the 2013/14 A-League Championship with the club and played 115 games over six seasons, leaving a remarkable legacy for the Queensland club.

North started his career in Brisbane in 1998 for former-NSL club Brisbane Strikers. He played 41 times for the Socceroos and was the first Indigenous Australian to captain the side. 

“I’d like to say thank you to everyone at the Club for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to be part of such a special Club,” North said.

“To the boys, I’d like to wish them good luck in the future and I believe this talented group has the potential to be successful in the years ahead.

“From the kit man, to the football department, along with our dedicated administration, I’d like to say thank you for your hard work.

“I’ll never forget our passionate fans and winning that 2013/14 Championship at Suncorp Stadium against the Wanderers in front of a sea of orange.

“Queensland has embraced my family and I by always making us feel at home. I’m not sure what my short-term future holds but as one door closes another one opens.”

It's unclear whether North will be the only long-serving Roar player to depart this offseason, with a slight restructuring of the club set to take place. 

It's rumoured that Matt McKay - another Roar player at the end of his contract - has been offered a new deal but it's yet to be confirmed.
