Childhood dream comes true for Wanderers' FFA Cup hero Adam

Teenage striker Mohamed Adam has signed a two-year scholarship contract with Western Sydney Wanderers.

Adam's promotion comes just two sleeps after he scored a goal and played a crucial part in Kwame Yeboah's winner to help seal Western Sydney's passage into the FFA Cup Round of 16 with a 2-1 win over Perth Glory.

The 19-year-old - who has scored 21 goals in 21 games for the club's NPL 2 side - has also featured in several pre-season friendlies, including in the club's Bankwest Stadium opener against Leeds United.

“I feel the hard work has paid off. I am definitely stoked and honoured to wear the Red & Black,” said Adam.

“I have supported the Wanderers from the start, and living in Western Sydney, and watching them play week in and out, the club is very important to me."

“I’ve had a lot of guidance from players like Pirmin Schwegler and Raddy Majewski and the coaches – Markus (Babbel), JP (Jean-Paul de Marigny), Labi (Labinot Haliti), Arthur Diles and Ian Crook. There is a really good support network around me.

“I feel very honoured, it is a childhood dream come true.”
