The Western Sydney Wanderers have announced the signings of Roly Bonevacia, Josh Risdon and Michael Thwaite this morning.

Bonevacia joins the Wanderers from the Wellington Phoenix where he has netted 14 goals from his 80 appearances and is contracted until the end of the 2018/19 A-League season.

“I’m very excited to start a new challenge, it’s something I’m really looking forward to,” Bonevacia told the club's website.
“The Club is very hungry for success and the coach gets the best of out his players and makes them better, so I can’t wait to get started.”
Risdon heads across to the east coast from Perth after 142 appearances with the Glory. The 24-year-old has represented Australia on three occasions, and said he's excited for a change of scenery.

“Obviously being at Perth for so long, it was a tough decision but I feel that this is the right choice and I’m really excited for the new experience,” Risdon said.

“The Wanderers are a great Club and have achieved so much in such a small time, so I’m looking forward to working under Tony Popovic and taking my game to the next level.”

Meanwhile, after a stint in China, Thwaite returns to the A-League following 183 appearances in the country's top level with Melbourne Victory, Gold Coast United and Perth Glory.

Thwaite has worn the green and gold on 13 occasions and will solidify their defence for the coming two seasons.
