Sydney already has the Earlwood Wanderers, Hurlstone Park Wanderers and Mounties Wanderers but now get set for the Western Sydney Wanderers to make their mark on the football landscape.
The good oil is that Sydney’s second A-League club, to be based in Sydney’s west, will be known as the Western Sydney Wanderers.
The club’s Executive Chairman, Lyall Gorman, will make a number of major announcements at Parramatta Stadium on Monday morning regarding the new club including its new name, colour and logo.
The new west Sydney club has already announced a number of player signings including Nikolai Topor-Stanley who is the latest addition to the squad.
Newcastle Jets released the centre back this week to join the new A-League franchise.
Jets CEO Robbie Middleby said it was in the best interests of the club to grant the 27-year-old a release.
‘‘This opportunity gives him longevity in the game and as a club we couldn't stand in his way,’’ Middley said.
Topor-Stanley will likely partner former Sydney FC defender Michael Beauchamp in the heart of the west Sydney defence next A-League season.
Topor-Stanley also joins former Jets teammate Tarek Elrich at the new club along with Sydney FC cast-offs Shannon Cole, Mark Bridge and Liam Reddy.
Young Socceroo Aaron Mooy has also signed making the switch from St Mirren in the Scottish Premier League.
