The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers are delighted to announce that fan favourite from the first two seasons, Jerrad Tyson, has returned home for the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.
Forever remembered for his tireless work in the community and his connection with the fans, Tyson embodied what it meant to be a Wanderer and used his role as a force for good in the West.
The goalkeeper made three appearances for the Red & Black in his two year stint, keeping three clean sheets in his two AFC Champions League matches and his sole Hyundai A-League start.
Since last pulling on the gloves for the Wanderers, the 26-year-old spent a season as first-choice keeper with Sun Pegasus in Hong Kong before returning to the Hyundai A-League with Perth Glory.
It was with his time at Sun Pegasus that Tyson made perhaps his most memorable appearance in Western Sydney: flying over from Hong Kong to lead chants from the capo stand in the RBB during the AFC Champions League Final.
With such a rich relationship with Western Sydney and the fans, Tyson was excited about returning to the Wanderers.
“This feeling is one of a homecoming; Western Sydney is a place I feel really passionate about and somewhere that I feel comfortable. It feels like I’m coming home,” said Tyson.
“The support the fans gave me over the two years I was at the club and then the two years I’ve been away from the club has been incredible and something that I’m looking forward to coming home to and doing my best to reward that support.
“This club is where players reach their full potential so I’m excited to come back and work with Zeljko and Popa. This is a year where I think I’ll be able to get as close to my potential as possible and reach a new standard for myself.”
