Adam ready for next level

Wanderers Academy graduate Mo Adam is determined to take his game to another level after completing a stellar season that saw him claim three awards during the National Premier League 2 season. 

The talented attacker in the National Premier League 2 won the Gold Boot and Player of the Year Award as well as taking out the Wanderers Academy Youth Player of the Year Award. 

"It's been a big year and I am very happy to be given those awards," said Adam. 

"As a player, it's always great to be recognised and I am happy that the awards have helped compliment my hard work. 

"There have been a lot of ups and downs, but I never gave up, and continued to work hard. The awards mean a lot to me."

Adam's persistence has seen him promoted to the Wanderers first team squad this season and he has been heavily involved in pre-season friendlies under head coach Markus Babbel.

The 19-year-old, who was born in Sudan before coming to Australia as a four-year-old, scored against Perth Glory in the Red & Black's FFA Cup Round of 32 clash in his senior debut in August.

"I've really enjoyed working with the first team and I am thankful for the opportunity," said Adam. 

"The boss has been very good with me even though I think I bug him a lot with all the questions I ask!

"He gives me a lot of advice and I really appreciate that. He is a former player and has coached overseas so I want to be a sponge and take in as much as I can.

"JP (Jean-Paul de Marigny) and Labi (Labinot Haliti) have also been very helpful.

"With the quality of players we have in the squad like Pirmin (Schwegler), Kwame (Yeboah), Raddy (Majewski) and Alex (Meier) there's a lot to learn from them."
