Wanderers add to A-League squad

Western Sydney Wanderers have added four more players to their inaugural squad.

Former Sydney trio Michael Beauchamp, Mark Bridge and Shannon Cole have joined the fledgling A-League club, which has three months to assemble the rest of the squad before making its A-League debut.

The addition of the experienced trio, who all started their careers in western Sydney, is sure to make the rivalry between the Sky Blues and the Wanderers even more intense.

Former Newcastle defender Nikolai Topor-Stanley has also joined the Wanderers after being released from his Jets contract.

Midfielder Cole and forward Bridge both worked with Tony Popovic when the 38-year-old was an assistant with Sydney, while Beauchamp, joining his sixth club in as many years, played alongside his new coach with the Socceroos.

Topor-Stanley had wanted to remain with the Jets but was released eight days ago, and could now be lining up alongside Beauchamp at the heart of the Wanderers defence.

Popovic said he was pleased to have signed the experienced quartet.

“I’m very pleased to have players with the experience of these guys in my squad,” Popovic said.

“All four players have excellent pedigree in the A-League and each brings something different to the squad.”

Beauchamp, Topor-Stanley, Bridge and Cole join Aaron Mooy, Tarek Elrich and Kwabena Appiah-Kubi as the players signed so far.
