Cole ready to face his former team

The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers head to continue their preparations for the 2014/15 season when they take on APIA Leichhardt at Leichhardt Oval on Tuesday 5 August 2014.

The match, which kicks-off at 7:30pm, is the first meeting between the Wanderers and the former National Soccer League champions.

Wanderers defender Shannon Cole said that the match will be a trip down memory lane.

“I actually played some junior football with APIA Leichhardt so it will be great fun returning to face a Club where I have so many fond memories as a youngster,” explained Cole.

“Pre-season is such an important time for every club and we’ll make the most of this match to ensure we’re ready for our FFA Cup game against Adelaide City next week.

“We’ve had two solid hit-outs so far this pre-season and I’m sure Tuesday’s match will be just as valuable.

Kick-off is 7:30pm on Tuesday 5 August at Leichhardt Oval. Tickets are available at the gate.
