Western Sydney Wanderers sign goalkeeper Liam Reddy for rest of A-league season

 Western Sydney Wanderers have confirmed the signing of former Central Coast Mariners and Sydney FC goalkeeper Liam Reddy, signing the 34-year-old for the remainder of the A-League season.

After spending almost two months in isolation while seeking a move away from the Mariners, Liam Reddy took little time to secure his next move after being unveiled as a Wanderers player barely a week after being officially released.

The move ends a troubled period for Reddy who was stood down by the Mariners for “disciplinary reasons” despite an independent A-League tribunal ruling in favour of Reddy and the players’ union during a dispute hearing.

Nevertheless, the next chapter of his career is a homecoming of sorts for Reddy whose professional career began at Pirtek Stadium with the now defunct NSL side, Parramatta Power in 2000.

“Returning to Western Sydney is like coming home, a lot of my family and friends live in Western Sydney, I started my career at Pirtek Stadium so the opportunity to come full circle is fantastic – it feels like I’ve come home again. I’m looking forward to getting down to work and do my best to help the Club win more silverware,” Reddy said.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity of working and learning under Tony Popovic and Spider [Zeljko Kalac] who will no doubt improve me as a player and a professional both on and off the park.”

The signing of Reddy places uncertainty over the starting position between the posts for the Wanderers beyond January when the transfer window reopens.

While Andrew Redmayne has enjoyed better form at the Wanderers than Melbourne City, occasional errors have loosened his long-term grip on a starting position. Back-up goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis was previously contracted to English giants Liverpool but appears to be on the outer at the club and has been linked with a move to the Mariners.

Reddy will start with the club immediately at Monday’s training session.

“We look forward to having him getting to work with our group and adding to the quality we have in our squad as we continue to push for the A-League Championship this season,” chief executive John Tsatsimas said.
