22 Attacker
biography-icon Biography

Having progressed through Glory’s youth ranks, Taggart broke into the first team in the 2010/11 season and scored his first senior goal away at Gold Coast United in Round 26.

In 2012, he completed a move to Newcastle Jets where he was to enjoy a productive two-season stint during which he took out the A-League Golden Boot and was named the A-League Young Player of the Year.

Following a spell in the UK with Fulham and Dundee United, the mobile frontman returned to Glory and fired home 20 goals across the 2016/17 and 2017/18 campaigns, solidifying his position as a fans’ favourite in the process.

The next stop on his football journey was a single season at Brisbane Roar and he then opted to try his luck overseas, making an instant impression at Suwon Samsung Bluewings by claiming the K-League Golden Boot and helping them secure the KFA Cup in his debut season.

After one more year in Korea, he was signed by Cerezo Osaka and over the course of two campaigns with the Japanese top-flight side, made 44 appearances in all competitions.

In December 2022, it was announced that he had signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with Glory and he duly bagged five goals in nine starts to take his overall tally for the club to 27.

At international level, meanwhile, Taggart won Under-20 and Under-23 caps before making his Socceroos debut against Hong Kong in 2012.

He featured against both Spain and Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup and to date, has scored six goals in 17 appearances.
