Fans flock to meet the Wanderers

After six months of waiting the Western Sydney Wanderers were finally unveiled to the public for the first time last week at the club's inaugural fan in Parramatta. 

More than 200 fans flocked to Prince Alfred Park to meet the club's A-League, W-League and youth league players.

Wanderers executive chairman Lyall Gorman said the fan day was the culmination of a long hard journey in starting a team from scratch.

"A heck of a lot of work has gone into building this club in just 186 days," Gorman said.

"Every step of the way this club has been powered by the people for the people."

The three-part event started at Church Street Mall before moving to Prince Alfred Park and onto Riverside Theatre.

Eager fans were given the opportunity to play small sided games, watch professional football jugglers and meet the players one on one for an autograph.

Among the fans present was the club's new celebrity ambassador Ian "Dicko" Dickinson.

Dicko officially presented the players to the waiting crowd and gave the team a big thumbs up to do well in their first season.

"It's terrific to have a team based in Australia's footballing heartland," Dicko said.
