Wanderers confirm coaching and support staff departures

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today confirmed the departure of coaches and support staff from the club’s Isuzu UTE A-League Men’s Football Department.

The Wanderers bid farewell to assistant coach Gary van Egmond, who joined the club in late December last year.

van Egmond worked alongside head coach Mark Rudan over the last five months in the first-team set up.

William Tan, Academy and Events Co-Ordinator, will depart the club at the start of June for an overseas opportunity after working closely in the Academy for the last five years.

Tan contributed greatly in the establishment of the Wanderers Academy and the Academy would not be what it is today without his unwavering passion and hard-work to assist the next generation of Red & Black players coming through the system.

Equipment Manager Connor McNicol departs the club after five years of co-ordinating and liaising with the Wanderers A-League Men’s, Women’s and Academy teams.

One of the most important members of the backroom staff, McNicol played an instrumental role in allowing coaching staff and teams to carry out their jobs and was imperative to the day-to-day runnings of the club.

Strength and Conditioning Coach, Andy Davies, departs after arriving on Australian shores in May 2019 with the Wanderers after an extensive career overseas.

Davies worked under a number of coaches during his time at the Red & Black and was essential in the players’ preparation and recovery processes.

Data Analyst, Aaron Borowski, concludes his time with the club after joining four years ago as an intern before working his way up the Wanderers Football Department to work with the club’s first team.

Assistant coach Labinot Haliti will be transitioning into the Wanderers Academy set-up.

The Wanderers would like to thank Gary, William, Connor, Andy and Aaron, for their hard work and wish them and their families all the best in the future.
