The NRMA Insurance Western Sydney Wanderers today announced the departures of Jerrad Tyson and Chris Herd following the termination of their contracts by mutual consent.
Fan favourite Tyson departs following his second stint at the club for another football opportunity and leaves with the thanks and gratitude of the club for the work he has consistent put in on-and-off the field.
“Leaving and goodbyes are never easy, particularly when it's to a club, a group of players, club staff and fans that mean so much to you,” said Tyson.
“The last 12 months have been very difficult returning from injury but the support and care of all those above, in particular my teammates, have made it possible and I'm forever grateful for that.
“As a professional I've always been driven to play at the top level. Now fully fit, my motivation is stronger than ever to achieve this, leading to my decision to leave the Wanderers in search of regular game time.
“Thank you to all who have supported my journey over the last two seasons. A part of me will always be Red & Black and I wish the club, my teammates and the fans all the best in the future.”
Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas thanked Tyson for his contribution over two separate periods with the club.
“Jerrad has been a fantastic ambassador for our club and football in Western Sydney over two spells and we wish him the best of luck and readily acknowledge his contribution to the history of this club,” said Tsatsimas.
Herd has agreed to end his time with the club to be closer to family in the UK.
“I would like to thank the Wanderers, the coaching staff, office staff, players and the fans,” said Herd.
“I had a great time at the club and I want to wish my teammates and the club good luck and all the best for the rest of the season.”
The club would like to thank both players for their contribution and wish them well in the future.
