Mounties peaked with precision in 2013, polishing off St George 4-1 in the penultimate regular season match to enter the finals series in third place. A commanding run through the knockout matches led to a well deserved spot in the grand final, but that was where the fairytale ended; St George running out 3-1 victors.
Coach Glenn Lockhart has a three-year plan in progress but it’s not hard not to expect big things from Mounties in 2014. With half of the squad having been at the club for four years or more, Lockhart has experience on his side. A team full of older heads, including evergreen Daniel Severino, mixed in with new recruits Anthony Costa (APIA), Aleksandar Tomic (Georgia Southern University) and co, mean Wanderers have the depth and quality to pop up at the pointy end of the season
The pain of seeing a runners-up medal dangling in the trophy cabinet is incentive enough.
