  • Gorman's West Side Story - SBS The World Game


    While insisting that he and coach Tony Popovic will have the bulk of the 23-man squad in place when pre-season kicks off on June 25, Gorman – the former A-League boss – maintains they will not be rushed in making poor judgement calls on the multitude of talent being dangled in front of them.


    He has also ruled out throwing money at a marquee signing, adding that the name as yet without a name, a ground or colours will be constructed well within the $2.6 million salary cap.


    Two players linked with the club (Sydney FC’s Mark Bridge and Dimitri Petratos) have not signed. According to Gorman and there and no talks pending and representatives for both players – currently under contract for a further season each with the Sky Blues – confirmed they would be staying out when contacted by the World Game.â€

    WestSydneyFootball.com understands that ex-Socceroo Ron Corry, who is currently part of the Australian Institute of Sport system, has been approached and is likely to accept a role at the West Sydney club as their inaugural Goalkeeping coach. No official confirmation has come to light at this time.


    Ron Corry had a long career with multiple clubs in the Western Sydney area from the mid 1960's all the way to the early 1980's. Previously to his AIS role, he was part of the coaching setups at Sutherland, Canterbury, Wollongong, Blacktown, Bankstown and Sydney United.
