The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers have today re-signed defender Brendan Hamill and goalkeeper Jerrad Tyson to new deals that will keep them at the Club until the end of the 2018/19 and 2017/18 seasons respectively.
Hamill will enter what will be his fourth year as a Wanderer next season after signing on for another two years.
The 24-year-old defender arrived at the Club in 2014 after spells at Melbourne Heart and K-League side Seongnam FC and went on to play a key role in the Wanderers’ AFC Champions League conquest that same year.
Born and raised in Western Sydney, the Australian youth international has now made 53 appearances and netted two goals for the Club.
Hamill said he was excited about securing his future with the Wanderers.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here at the Club so I’m really happy to have extended my stay for another two seasons,” said Hamill.
“As a Western Sydney boy, it’s pretty special to be able to play in front of my friends, family and our fans, who I think are the best in the league.”
Foundation player Tyson is also set to pull on the Red & Black for a fourth season.
The 27-year-old joined the Wanderers in their inaugural season from Gold Coast United and enjoyed two seasons in Western Sydney before stints with Sun Pegasus in Hong Kong and Perth Glory.
Since returning to the Wanderers last season Tyson has now made 10 appearances in all competitions across his two stints at the Club.
The shot-stopper is also held in high regard off the pitch for his tireless work in the community and his connection with the fans.
Tyson said he was delighted to have extended his stay with the Wanderers.
“It’s a really terrific feeling. It’s a Club that I feel very passionate about and there was never any hesitation about signing on for another year,” he said.
“A lot of Clubs always talk about the fans and the players and everyone involved being a family but I think I’ve really experienced that at the Wanderers.”
