Prendergast taking chances

Wanderers new goalkeeper Tristan Prendergast is thankful for any opportunities that may come his way when the Red & Black resume their season on Wednesday 22 July.

The shot stopper joined the Wanderers last week from NSW National Premier League side Blacktown City and has been a stalwart in the domestic competition for the last six seasons.

An "unorthodox" keeper, Prendergast is looking forward to making his family and friends proud when he puts on the Wanderers strip in two weeks time.

"My family is all behind me and I've had a lot of mates text me as well so my phone's been going off, I'm really looking forward to it," said Prendergast.

"Hopefully I get the opportunity to make my debut, I've known Davide (Wanderers head goalkeeper coach) for seven years now so I've got a bit of a relationship there.

"Which makes it easier when you're coming straight back in."

Having played against the Wanderers before in the FFA Cup, Prendergast knows exactly what the club is about and is ready to play his part in helping the team make Finals.

"I know what Davide and the club are all about, and we get along pretty well so that makes it a lot easier as well," said Prendergast on settling in with the team.

"I'm just gonna do my best, hopefully keep a few clean sheets and help the team get into Finals as the boys have said that's the goal for the club.

"I just want to do what I can to help."
