Australian Football: Wanderers sign midfield starlet

Western Sydney Wanderers have completed the signing of talented youngster Calem Nieuwenhof who arrives from cross-city rivals Sydney FC.

The A-League campaign has only just drawn to a close but boss Mark Rudan is wasting no time in strengthening his ranks for the 2022/23 season.

Youth and experience

The Wanderers have just bolstered their ranks with the vastly experienced Romain Amalfitano and now they have added some youth with 21-year-old Nieuwenhof arriving.

The central midfielder played 19 games for Sydney’s NPL side, but he also stepped up to Steve Corica’s senior side when making 11 appearances, scoring the one goal.

Fresh challenge

“Looking over, I’ve always seen the Wanderers as a great club and one of the biggest in Australia,” Nieuwenhof told the club’s website. “I was really excited to come here and I was looking for a change of scenery, a new environment and I think this is one I can thrive in.

“One of the key characteristics of the Wanderers is passion, all the way from the fan base to the playing team. Football is different out here in the West, there’s so many young players coming through the ranks and it’s the home of football.

“I feel that if I can string a few games together and have a good season, then I’ll get to show my ability for the Wanderers.
“I think it’s going to be a great new squad and I’m keen to learn so much from the players that are around me.”
