The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers have signed goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne until the end of the 2016/17 season.With over 50 Hyundai A-League caps to his name, 26-year-old Redmayne will add further experience to the Wanderers squad.
A product of the Australian Institute of Sport, Redmayne joined Central Coast Mariners as a teenager before taking up an offer at Brisbane Roar winning three trophies with the Queenslanders before joining Melbourne Heart [now City] where he quickly established himself as the club’s number one keeper, a position he kept for the majority of his time at the club.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas welcomed the signing of Redmayne.
“Andrew has a fantastic work ethic and will be a great addition to our squad,” said Tsatsimas.
“He has played at the top level and been in some very successful groups throughout his career and we are excited to start pre-season and get the best out of our players for the coming season.”
Redmayne said he was excited and has high expectations for the new challenge.
“I’m excited about this opportunity and look forward to getting to work,” said Redmayne.
“I want to add to the team and to the success this Club has achieved in its first three seasons.
“I’m looking forward to getting to Sydney and settling in, developing my game further and taking it to the next level under Spider (Zeljko Kalac) who was a big draw card in coming to the Club.
“I’d love to win a Championship with the Wanderers, I was fortunate to win a couple during my time in Brisbane and there is no better feeling and I want that again for this Club and for Western Sydney.
“It is a massive plus that I’ve got so much family with my mum, uncles, aunties and cousins all in the Western Sydney region near Emu Plains, as soon as I told mum she was ecstatic that she’d get to see a bit more of me.”
