The tight con­test at the foot of the ta­ble last sea­son saw the Western Syd­ney Wan­der­ers sit­ting a place from the bot­tom, but within a whisker of much bet­ter. Freshly ap­pointed coach Dan Bar­rett im­me­di­ately made changes, bring­ing a host of Syd­ney FC play­ers to the club in Leena Khamis, Kylie Led­brook, Ge­or­gia Yeo­man-Dale, Remy Sies­men and the re­turn­ing Caitlin Cooper.

These ad­di­tions to the squad will bring ex­pe­ri­ence, es­pe­cially to a for­ward line that was lack­ing goals, with Khamis and Sies­men both proven scor­ers in the league.

Fur­ther re­in­force­ments at the club come in the form of their se­lec­tion of in­ter­na­tion­als who will be spread across the park, with Lo’eau LaBonta (picutred) re­turn­ing to the side’s mid­field, her Utah Roy­als de­fender team-mate Syd­ney Mi­ra­mon­tez and Ghana­ian for­ward El­iz­a­beth Addo all set for the new sea­son.

The Wan­der­ers will be seek­ing to find the right bal­ance of ex­pe­ri­ence and youth with a host of qual­ity youth play­ers. If the Wan­der­ers are able to find chem­istry early, the mix­ture of play­ers will mean they’re a for­mi­da­ble out­fit.
