Same birthplace as the Charlton brothers and was once signed by Robbie Fowler.

Is Robbie another of Ryan's bezzy mates so recommended him. Or does  the  PAFC stats analysis cover the whole world?

Brisbane Roar can confirm that defender Macaulay Gillesphey will depart the Club after two seasons to return home to his native England.

Gillesphey has agreed to join EFL League One side Plymouth Argyle following his 50th A-League appearance and second successive Finals Series campaign with the Roar.

"For me it feels like the right time to head home – it's been a long two years being away from my girlfriend and family," Gillesphey said.

"I feel I've come out here and done well. I've progressed as a player. It was a big step to move to the other side of the world by myself, but I'm glad it's paid off and I've loved every minute, both the football and the lifestyle.

"I want to thank the Club for giving me the opportunity and everyone for being so welcoming, from my team-mates to the fans and all the coaches, right down to the physio and fitness staff in Jas [Sidhu] and Nathan [Sherlock] who have been amazing for me.

"I'm thankful to everybody."

Gillesphey, 25, joined Brisbane from Carlisle United ahead of the 2019/20 Season and went on to win the Gary Wilkins Medal as the Club's A-League Player of the Season.

He scored once during that campaign and added another three goals this term as the Roar recorded a top-four finish for the second year running.

"While we would have loved to have kept Macaulay, we respect his desire to head home and be closer to family and friends," Head Coach Warren Moon said.

"He has been a very reliable part our defence, a well-liked member of the team, and I'm sure he will be fondly remembered by Brisbane Roar fans.

"Myself and everyone at the Club wishes him good luck for this next chapter."

He was a standout player for us at the Roar. One of the A-League’s better defenders. Sorry to see him go, but you’re picking up a good one!

Guess we will see, how recruiting a ex Carlisle player from the Aussie A league pans out,  on the face of it seems a big gamble.

The Plymouth Live version:

The Pilgrims' boss has talked about the signing of Macaulay Gillesphey from A-League club Brisbane Roar

Ryan Lowe has revealed that his former Bury player Jay O’Shea first raised the prospect of him signing defender Macaulay Gillesphey for Plymouth Argyle.

Lowe also sought out the opinion of ex-England and Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler, who signed the 25-year-old for Australian side Brisbane Roar in 2019.

The recommendations from O’Shea and Fowler paved the way for Gillesphey to sign a two-year contract with the Pilgrims.

The deal is subject to international clearance and the passing of a medical, with the Newcastle United academy product already on his way to England.

Gillesphey’s second season with Brisbane Roar ended on Sunday when they lost 2-1 at home to Adelaide United in the first stage of the A-League Finals Series.

Also in their side was 32-year-old O’Shea, who was a team-mate of Lowe at Bury before the latter became their manager.

Lowe told Plymouth Live: “Jay O’Shea is good mates with him (Gillesphey) from over there. He played with him for the past two seasons.

“The boy had said he wanted to get back to England and Jay told him he would be perfect for the way I play because he’s a left-sided centre-half.

“Then Jay got in touch with me and Schuey (assistant manager Steven Schumacher) and that’s really where the interest came from.

“Jay said he was quality, and his agent contacted us so we sat down with him and discussed what the situation looked like and how it was going to work.

“He was their player-of-the-year last season and was probably not far off their player-of-the-year this season.

“I did my due diligence and spoke to Robbie Fowler regarding him and he said ‘Great lad, great player’.

“Obviously, he can improve, which most players can. Once we sat down the agent and then I spoke to Macaulay it was a done deal.

“It has been in the pipeline for a little while but we had to respect Brisbane because they had offered him a new contract.

“We had to wait until he told them that he wasn’t signing and then we could speak to the boy.

“There was a lot of interest in him from Australia as well, and a lot of interest from England.

“So it was one that came out of the blue in terms of an old player of ours recommending him.

“All his numbers added up of the type of player he is and here he is, he’s going to be a Plymouth Argyle once his medical has come through.”

Lowe continued: “When I first started management I always said I didn’t want to miss a call.

“So I remember having two phones at one point, because that call you might miss could be someone that you think ‘I could have had him’.

“We still speak to Jay O’Shea now. He has got a good relationship with Schuey and myself.

“He’s a good player and knows his football. He has seen a lad there with potential and has thought he would be perfect for us.

“So he recommended him to us first and foremost and then we put everything together, the due diligence and all the numbers stacked up, it was a no-brainer.

“He has got the pedigree. Players from Newcastle are no mugs.

“He went away for two years, away from his family at a young age, and tested himself.

“He was desperate to get back to England and here he is with us.”

Gillesphey joined Brisbane, the three times A-League champions, from Carlisle United.

Fowler was manager of the Roar at the time so knows all about him.

“When I spoke to Robbie about him he said he was their player-of-the-year, has a great left foot, can defend, can attack,” explained Lowe.

“They are hard to come by those types of players. We didn’t have to sell much to Macaulay.

“He knew what Plymouth Argyle was about. He’s going to move down with his girlfriend.

“So I’m really pleased. He’s a good lad, a good footballer and there is room for improvement with him also.”

Brisbane finished fourth in the 12-team A-League this season, with Gillesphey starting 22 of their 26 games and scoring three goals.

Lowe said: “It’s fast and furious. When you think of the A-League you look at all these players who are over there now.

“Craig Noone is over there (at Melbourne City) and he used to play for Argyle, and obviously there is Jay O’Shea.

“We know it’s a good league, we know it has got better year after year so we have no doubt that Macaulay will come in and hit the ground running.”

Lowe needs to come good and hit the ground running this season
Its somewhat concerning that currently we seem to be going with the same midfield and attack that hardly covered themselves in glory last season
George Cooper could be viewed as new signing I guess.

The lack of an experienced keeper is concerning. We're going to see the exact same mistakes as last season. Problem for Lowe (again) is he set his stall out by saying Cooper is a great keeper and is now stuck with that diagnosis

Rickler screenshot that because the errors will come up throughout the season and sadly most know it

So, in other words, another season of fixated and mostly nonsensical blame attribution from your good self is on the way. Rolling Eyes
