Young - who has become one of the A-League's star shot-stoppers this campaign - will now remain in Brisbane until the end of the 2019-20 season.

It's a coup for John Aloisi's side who are expected to undergo a substantial reshuffling at the end of this campaign, given the side's poor results, injury woes and ageing squad.

“I’m extremely proud to be able to commit my long-term future to my hometown Club,” Young said.

"I've enjoyed representing the club, the people of Brisbane, alongside the rest of the players and staff, and it's a place that I am passionate about.

“I want to thank the Club and coaching staff for the faith they have shown in me and it's great that I can focus on improving my game on a daily basis.”

Aloisi was similarly excited that Young put pen-to-paper. The English-national leads the league in save percentage - 75% - and is also highly-rated in big-chances saved and total saves.

“Securing the signature of Jamie is fantastic news for our Football Club,” Head Coach John Aloisi said.

“His form has been outstanding this season and we believe he has a massive part to play in our future success. Youngy is a top-quality footballer who sets such high standards both on and off the park.

“I’m sure today’s news will delight our supporters and the local football community here in Brisbane.”
