National Premier Leagues 2 NSW Men’s club Mounties Wanderers have bagged a massive coup by signing former Western Sydney Wanderers striker Mark Bridge – with the ace marksman joining Brian ‘Bomber’ Brown’s men at the conclusion of the Hyundai A-League season.
The 33-year-old stated his ambition to continue playing on after the Mounties Wanderers showed a keen interest in luring the star to Cook Park in Mount Pritchard where he will call home for the remainder of the NPL 2 NSW Men’s season.
The Mounties Wanderers are in desperate need of changing its fortunes around as the club has only managed to record a point out of its first two matches – and with a decent list of quality players on its player roster, the club expects better things, Bridge hopes he can further add proof that the Wanderers mean business this year.
Life in Men’s 2 has not started the way it should have for coach Brian Brown.
The club drew 5-5 against Canterbury Bankstown FC in a crazy season opener before being hammered 6-2 by the North Shore Mariners last Saturday evening.
And boosting the likes of players such as Sean Rooney, Jacob Poscoliero, Peter Triantis, Bruno Pivato, Matthew West and Theo Kofinas to name a few, its little wonder why fans and followers of the NPL 2 Men’s competition believe the Mounties should be pushing for silverware this year.
Adding Bridge to its roster will boost not only the club’s but the competition’s profile.
Having spent over 10 years in the A-League winning two championships including a precious AFC Asian Champions League medal with the Western Sydney Wanderers, his presence and experience could prove vital to the club’s chances of winning trophies this season.
