Mooy ready to make his mark


Aaron Mooy is ready to finally show Australian football fans what he can do when Wanderers FC take on Nepean in the club’s first trial.

Aaron Mooy has spent plenty of time impressing others on the training paddock for Wanderers FC, but the talented midfielder just wants to show his wares on the pitch and prove his worth in the club-s opening trial match against Nepean on Wednesday night.

With Tony Popovic drilling his players hard throughout the long pre-season, Mooy knows he has plenty of run in his legs and wouldn-t mind playing a big role in the club-s first trial match.

“I-m ready for sure, Tony (Popovic) hasn-t talked much about the game yet, but I-m ready to play and looking forward to it,” Mooy said.

“I feel really fit at the moment, it-s been a hard pre-season and we have a long time to get ready and I-m just trying to get fitter and make sure at the start of the season I am ready.”

The match against Nepean will not only give fans and the media their first look at the Wanderers squad as a whole but will also provide the opportunity for a number of the club-s triallists to impress coach Tony Popovic, and push their claims for a spot in the starting side.

Mooy himself is looking forward to seeing what those uncontracted players can do and hopes he might see some performances that earn some of those players new contracts.

“There are boys coming in every day, they-re trying to impress and get in the team, so that-s good and I-m really looking forward to see who my teammates are going to be.”

Western Sydney Wanderers FC kick off their pre-season games against Nepean FC, next Wednesday, July 25, kicking off at 7:30pm at Cook Park, St Marys.

The club then face Blacktown City on August 8 at Lilly Homes Stadium, Blacktown
